Good Portuguese Steak

Ate here one evening and both had Portuguese style steak- one sirloin and one fillet. The fillet was the better of the two with a very generously sized cut and tasty sauce. I think Portuguese style also means quite well done but as the fillet was so thick it was still very tender in the middle. Ate... read more

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

I ordered garlic bread with cheese as a starter and it was quite salty but I decided that was probably due to the cheese, as some cheeses can be very salty. For my main course, I ordered a fillet steak which came with fries and vegetable. The steak was very tender and all of the ingredients on my plate appreaed... More

We had 1 drink and read the paper in this bar almost every day while in Olhos. We also tried the sea food pizza which was delicious and enough for 2. Nice lady serving and large beer still only 1 euro. Excellent.

we ate in Restaurante Tamarillo at Praia Dos Olhos Do Agua and couldn't believe the fantastic value we got for our money. Excellent service and great value for our big family.

Someone should teach the waiting staff to smile - they serve decent food at reasonable prices but struggled to create a welcoming environment. This was a pity as it could have been so much better

This restaurant was open early in the season so we got to enjoy it a few times. They have large beer for one euro (a huge draw on a warm day!!) and they serve the very best-tasting chicken Piri piri. We've had delicious pizzas as well. The waiter, Raj, is a lovely young man who has family in Canada.
