This is by far the best restaurant. Could not choose what I wanted so much variety. Didn't chose a starter as main courses are big enough. I had spare ribs and meat fell off the bone so nice. Most of our party chose mixed grill our plates were empty and full stomachs. The staff are so friendly and accommodating nothing... More

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

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
