As a regular visitor to the Algarve, I have to say that the "Frango Piri Piri" in Tamarillo was wonderful and amongst the best I have tasted - shame that the staff aren't particularly attentive and the outdoor seating is located almost on top of a rather smelly drain...

Staff always remembered us, although service could be slow, but we were in no hurry. Food and drinks were very good value - especially liked the fresh crab. Each night there was a 'human statue' stood opposite and he was fun to watch.

Having dined here in 2012 and 2013 several times, all great experiences, we took the family last night for the first time - a party of 8. Despite arriving at 7.30pm and being one of the first table there, our food did not arrive until 9.00pm, whilst other tables received their food much quicker. Apparently it was because we ordered...

We visited this restaurant for drinks whilst leaving the beach. It is a lovely restaurant with beautiful views of the ocean. Very friendly staff with a very relaxed feel in the restaurant. A special mention to Phillippe and Micha who are always smiling and very attentive. Will definitely revisit next time we go back.

Nice meals and nice people. We did not like the sardines, though. Nice service, free WiFi. The portugese steak is very good, I can reccommend that with five stars!
