Terrible food, the entertainment sounded like someone strangling a cat. If you want to see the sad part of algarve go ahead and go to this place. I am not sure what the others saw in this place. There are some fantastic restaurants in this area and one wonders how this can even get a single good review.

La piazza is for me one of the best restaurants that I know. Because the food is good and the wine is fine ;) And the people who work there are very nice. So I recommend you to go to there if you like good food.

Our sat nav had a dickie fit and sent us up the wrong road, so we found ourselves parked at the petrol station in the quaint village of Santa Barbara De Nexe. Faced with 3 hungry kids in the back of the car repeating over and over phrases such as 'where is it?' 'Where is it?' 'Are we lost?' ,... More
