Very good restaurant

This is a very good restaurant, and probably the best walking distance option for someone that stay's at the Herdade dos Salgados hotels. The service is impecable and the food is also very good and varied. I just loved the desert (Leite-creme)

Great food, served by genuinely friendly people. The speciality here is obviously going to be fish, but I recommend the Trio Chefe and the Filet Robalo in particular. Terrific local wines too. Starters tend to be under 7 euros, man courses maybe 15 to 17 euros, about the same for wine. Usually closed on a Sunday evening (or at least... More

This was the third year we have visited this restaurant during our Easter break and this year we dined here twice. The staff are so welcoming and there is huge choice of amazing dishes on the menu. Over our two meals we had some wonderful food, the goats cheese starter was absolutely amazing as was the seafood trio and the... More

Went to both Restaurants mid of November. Have been in both cases the only guests..;-) The difference was immense. Personal recommendations for the wine, very nice chatting with the waiter and the chef, excellent food and a nice personal atmosphere in the museo di salgados vs. Piri piro with no taste, boring waiters, paper table cloth and an atmosphere like...

This restaurant is on the road west out of Albufeira, passed the Marina heading in the direction of Gale/Salgados. it is about 10/15 mins drive. The resturant is on the right hand side(coming from Albufeira) at the side of the road with the car park opposite on the other side of the road. It looks small and unassuming from the... More

Our hotel recommended this restaurant and we liked it so much that we ate dinner there twice! The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. The food is excellent, well-prepared and well-presented. Wine selection is very good with choices on and not on the menu. Highly recommend.

From the moment you walk through the door you are treated with genuine respect and courtesy. A fine all round choice complemented by the a vineyard of knowledge on wine. The reds ate recanted, a variety. A party of six with... More

My wife and I stay in Vale de Parra a lot and have been meaning to try this restaurant as it is a walk from the villa we stay in. It looks small and average- do not be fooled. We walked in off the street and it was already busy, the "meet and greet" was extremely friendly and what we... More
