Easily found with good cooking you'd expect at home at a very reasonable cost . A place you find yourself going to every morning with staff being helpful in sharing their local knowledge . Nice touch of an extra glass of Buck's Fizz for my wife's birthday .

This is a lovely little place unfortunately we never got to have a main meal here but we did have a English breakfast a couple of times and it was really nice and very good value for money.

Must be one of the best home made Lasagna I have eaten nice sized portion with fresh chips. Service was very quick and efficient. Went back for Sunday lunch and they had sold out. I am not surprised looking around the tables on the way out everyone had ample portions all looked nicely cooked

Good meals here very good value we loved it here the prices were right the only downside was every time we ate there were flies all over spending as much time swatting as eating the owners need to buy fly exterminators

It's September!! A nightmare time for flies in the Algarve. We have 2 plug in machines working 24/7, an industrial unit in the kitchen and spray front of house last thing at night. Sometimes the little b#ggers win but we try our hardest!! PS. They are just as pesky outside this time of year! More

Having not been to the Algarve before, we did not know where was a good place to eat, we usually have a bit of a tour and find a place we like with good prices, choice and staff. We were having a drink at the beach and asked the waitress where she would recommend or eat at, this was the... More
