Good food, good value!

Had a very nice meal. Good location and good prices. Had the mixed kebab and chicken curry... Both were nice. House wine was delightful.

Went there on 23rd for evening meal. 4 adults, 3 mid-teens. 3 had chicken caesar salad, 1 sea bass, 1 piri chicken, 1 steak and i had the fish kebab. I have to agree with the reviewer below, that the fish kebab wasn't the greatest and was overcooked. However, the fish soup starter was good and flavoursome and sort of... More

We ate here twice on our 10 day break. Dissappointed first time with the squid and prwn kebab....very overcooked and chewy, but the second time, the mixed kebab was outstanding. Pizzas are also good and the prices reasonable. I would definitely recommend.

Good quality Italian fayre!! To be honest, we (5 adults and 4 children) tried to get a table at the Italian next door but it was full but Tamirillo had space. Service was excellent, fast and attentive. Garlic bread with cheese starter was delicious and most of us chose pasta dishes for mains. All pasta dishes were again, very good... More

We visisted Tamarillo 3 times during our stay, twice for dinner and once just for drinks. The food was beautiful and very authentic. Our waiter Rui was lovely and attentive and remembered us each time we went back. Doesn't get enough credit, I think it's one of the best places in Olhos D'Agua!

All in all a great tasting meal at a very reasonable price. As we had arrived early it became noticeable as the restaurant packed up that service is likely pretty slow in high time however it didn't really impact us

We have been coming here for a few years & love lunches here when spending a day on the beach however it has changed this year. Yes, the food is good when it arrives but the service is very poor & the waiters were not interested whatsoever. We won't be eating there again this year.

Really nice restaurant with a great menu choice. Prices are incredibly good considering some of the dishes. Service can be slow when busy but the staff were always amiable and apologised if we were ever waiting. A lovely spot for a beer at lunchtime after a hot morning on the beach made all the better when only priced at one... More
