Visited this restaurant on Thursday 3rd July last night of our holiday. Food was good but service was awful to say the least. The bottom of my glass broke and beer was all over me. No one even apologised. (I was wearing white trousers and was staying in Silves a good half hour drive) I asked to speak to the... More

First of all I am very happy to hear that you enjoyed the food, despite your complaint. You remarked that the food was not cheap. Surely you will not find cheap 5 euro dishes in our... More

Loves this place, favourite place in town and returned 4 times! Ribs are definately the best, other meals not so good. Fantastic staff and atmosphere- enjoyed our visit for Holland`s World Cup matches!

Went here for our last night and was definitely the best meal of the holiday. The ribs were literally melt in your mouth and falling off the bone. Very reasonably priced and and large portions of food. Perfect after a day out on a bus trip or other activities

Ate there this week. The place was very busy with both locals and Dutch tourists. The service was good and delivered with a genuine smile. I ordered the chicken piri piri. It was a nice mix of spice and sweetness and served with fries and salad. You could order as much as you wanted for a fixed price. I managed... More

Service is good and very friendly and the prices are VERY reasonable, but it is the quality of the food that tops everything, if you are... More
