Yummy!

Great menu, excellent wines. We ate here 3 times, when we stayed in town for 4 nights. Close walk to large hotels, off the beaten track, in the cute, beachside town of Olhos d'Agua.

We were enticed to eat at this restaurant due to a 'free bottle of house wine' voucher they were giving out so we thought we'd give it a try. The restaurant was already very busy and we were told to sit in someone's seat as soon as they left, even though the table hadn't been cleared. We then waited a... More

So we both say down told we could sit where ever. After 5 mins we get a menu but not offered any drinks. After another 5mins drink order was taken along with food order. We then sat and waited for a bottle of wine and a beer to come. After 15mins a table of 10 sat next to us, got... More

Visited a number of times, so got round the menu pretty well. Food quality was excellent, service was friendly and reasonably quick. Value was really good. Compares very favourably to its more illustrious neighbour, which we visited less frequently!

Once again our visit to Tamarillo was excellent. The food atmosphere and service were first class. When ordering staff advised that there would be a wait for the Fish Dish. Well worth the wait cooked perfectly and the meat dish was excellent. Great value for such great food Well worth a visit.

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

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 a similar dish... 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.
