Passed this restaurant on the way to our villa and it looked very imposing and modern wasn't sure if it would be child friendly but it definitely was. Food was excellent as was the service, prices were good value. Will certainly go back and would thoroughly recommend you try tis one.

Food and service was excellent. The wine cellar must be seen amazing selection of Portuguese wines. We would recommend as it's a little of the beaten track but we'll worth the effort.

What a delight it was eating here!! I don't know where to start. Both service and food were outstanding!! I ordered a cocktail what took a little longer because the bartender had to make more. One of the waiters came down to apologies for the waiting. The cocktail was worth waiting for. A "sex on the beach" with fresh orange... More

Over the years we have visited this restaurant many times and the food is still great. The menu has a good selection of meats and fish. The interior has been upgraded to a more modern look, but it still holds the character of the old décor. My favourite dish is the pepper steak which is fantastic and my wife loves... More

Beautiful restaurant, delicious food and friendly staff. By far the best restaurant we've visited in the Algarve. You can tell they take pride in the food they serve and the service they provide. Very reasonably priced, well worth the visit.
