The pizza was relatively expensive € 10,- compared to other dishes but one of the best I ever had. The piri-piri chicken could have been much better, I have to admit... read more

My partner and I stayed in Olhos at the end of November 2015 for a week. Many restaurants in the town (beachfront end) were closed for the season, however, Tamarillo was open and after a long day travelling we visited Tamarillo on our first evening. The menu is varied and inclusive and both meals (Portuguese Steak and Salmon Carbonara) were... More

Popped in here for lunch and asked for a large 1.5L bottle of water priced at €1.5 but was brought 2 of the smallest bottles of water you will ever see in your life and told that they had run out of large bottles. These were charged at €1 each. Next I asked for a half bottle of house white... More

Visited here one night and both adult meals were excellent. Prawn linguini was superb and the missus said the same about her meat lasagne. Childs fish fingers weren't nice at all, maybe this though is just how they are in Portugal. At the end also given a voucher for a free bottle of house wine, not been back to redeem... More

Nice small cafe / restuarant on the main square centre of town. I have been searching for a really good peri peri chicken but have been disappointed again and again. The chicken here was the worse of them all with scraps of chicken (wing ends etc.) and not the half chicken shown on the display outside. My partner had the... More

We were drawn in on our first night in olhus de agua but my fiancé had the sea bass and it was divine. Staff were lovely too. So 2 nights later we returned and I had the sea bass. Amazing. Staff remembered us too. Fab place and as for the almond cake .... yummy! A must place to eat.

We fancied something simple for lunch and went for a pizza and a burger. The food was great value for money, hot and tasty. The staff were polite and we were well looked after.
