We ate here several times and the special menu is great value, free bottle of wine for returning customers and outside sea views. Drink prices are very reasonable and service is good, food is good but can vary which could be down to the chef on at the time, over all we will return as definately one of the better... More

My wife and I had lunch at Tamarillo during a trip to the beach at Olhos de Agua. The location I great, right next to the beach and the staff were very attentive and friendly. We ate sardines, potatoes and salad and grilled steak and chips. With two drinks, the cost was 15 euros. The food was lovely and the... More

Our first visit was during the day for drinks (very cheap then!) our second, for lunch, when we had the chicken piri piri - and the cheap drinks again - and third for an evening meal. Ordered the clams to start, which are a little pricey, but so very, very tasty! Our mains were also very good - but I... More

A very nice restaurant along the main road of Olhos d'Agua beach area, we ate here on our first night and found the food and drink to be very nice and fresh. Good choice on the menu and we didn't have to wait long for a table for 4 to be available. One thing I would mention, compared to the... More

Visited here a couple of times in the afternoon for drinks great value as we always seemed to drop on the crazy hour (that lasts longer than an hour).

This tiny restaurant in the heart of Olhos d'Agua always delivers. Whether it's just for a beer in the heat of the day, or a delicious Portuguese meal in the evening, I would not hesitate to recommend it. They also give out vouchers for a bottle of wine as a (welcome) bribe to return. No bribe needed really, but appreciated... More

Having been going to Olhos D Agua for many years I had never bothered to try Tamarillo so on the recommendation of my brother guess this year we did twice!!! On both occasions service and food were both very good and with Caneca (Large Beer) at only 1 euro who can complain. Will definitely be back next time!!!

We arrived in olhos desperate for food and a drink after a rather horrendous start to our holiday. Having visited tamarillo last time we visited olhos we headed there for what we were sure would be decent food. We were not disappointed. The food was delicious. The cocktails were amazing. And the staff were perfect. The young English girl misha... More

I had the only goat's cheese salad with pine nuts I have been able to find in the algarve!! And it was wonderful! Followed by salmon tagliatelle- equally delicious. We waited about 45 mins to be served but they were busy and it was worth waiting for! To all those people who can't chill out and be patient-relax! Have a... More

It's handy for a beach side drink, they serve Guinness at €2.50 which is very good. Cheap cocktails again good value. Food on the other hand was not up to much. Peri Peri Pigeon, I wouldn't bother myself. It's another average snack bar in Olhas, not bad, not good, just ok. The service is good though...
