Great service, really nice people

Myself and two friends visited this restaurant on our recent trip to Albufeira, the first night just for cocktails but we then returned the next day and the next.

Service really slow an hour for main course. food was going cold by the time we had cutlery. Waiter had an attitude when we asked for the third time for a fork. We ordered sirloin but although my steak was fine my husbands steak was full of grissle tough and not edible. Seemed more like a cheap rump steak so... More

Very nice food and good service although the staff could have been more cheery! We would go again if we stayed in the resort.

We were enticed to eat at this restaurant due to a 'free bottle of house wine' voucher they were giving out so we thought we'd give it a try. The restaurant was already very busy and we were told to sit in someone's seat as soon as they left, even though the table hadn't been cleared. We then waited a... More

Visited a number of times, so got round the menu pretty well. Food quality was excellent, service was friendly and reasonably quick. Value was really good. Compares very favourably to its more illustrious neighbour, which we visited less frequently!

Once again our visit to Tamarillo was excellent. The food atmosphere and service were first class. When ordering staff advised that there would be a wait for the Fish Dish. Well worth the wait cooked perfectly and the meat dish was excellent. Great value for such great food Well worth a visit.

Great menu, excellent wines. We ate here 3 times, when we stayed in town for 4 nights. Close walk to large hotels, off the beaten track, in the cute, beachside town of Olhos d'Agua.

Chicken piri piri is the best!! We landed at Faro airport at 8 pm and were eating with a sea view by. 9.15 pm Very good as usual and we had a carton of milk to take back to the apartment as the supermarket had closed, good value for money, friendly staff.

We ate here twice during our recent visit, once at lunch time and once in the evening. At lunchtime, my husband had the piri piri chicken and benefited from the €1 beer. I had sardines. They were excellent and there were lots of them - 6 big ones! For our evening meals, we had the mixed kebab and piri piri... More
