On this occasion we didn't book however as we have dined in this restaurant in previous years, we found it's advisable to book in peak season. The... read more

Really good food, lovely staff. I had black pork fillet (traditional portugese meal) - to die for. We also had the rack of lamb which was so so tasty and salted cod (traditional portugese meal) which was scrummy and the trio of fish - also really scrummy. We then had the homemade deserts; panacotta, creme brule, chocolate suffle and mango... More

The staff are the best I have ever came across: helpful, well mannered and a very good knowledge of wines and the... More

This is my 4th visit to the Algarve and my umpteenth trip to this amazing restaurant. I would eat here every night of my holiday if I could. The service is prompt and friendly without ever feeling overbearing and all of the food on offer is superb. Never had a bad meal here and I doubt I ever will. As... More

After some time, finally returned to the Museu dos Salgados, and my expectations were exceeded once more. The menu has a fantastic choice from starters through to desserts. Always difficult to choose what to have, a matter made easier with 3 very enjoyable visits while staying in the Algarve. The Monkfish and Prawn Cataplana, very fragrant and was excellent and...

The food is typical portuguese, with a little twist of fusion. The warm bread is great, and The meat is absolutely delicious.
