What a brilliant night out! The food is absolutely top class, the best steak I have had anywhere, generous portions and cooked to perfection, with a beautiful sauce. Dessert was just as good, white chocolate and baileys cheesecake, really moist, and struggled to finish the enormous slice I was served. This would be great on its own, but throw in... More

The worst food we've had all week in the Algarve. If you come on holiday to Portugal to have all-day breakfast with a pint of beer then this place could be for you. If you come to Portugal to experience the local food at local prices then keep your distance from this place. It is simply awful, the food is... More
