I have eaten here several times. All the food is basic traditional Portuguese food cooked to the old recipes and methods. The menu is quite extensive and the wine selections has to be seen to be believed. Both the owner and his son have spent a lot of time in the UK so there is plenty of chance for a... More

I could not fault this lovely family run restaurant. The food was beautiful, the atmosphere was calm, relaxed and friendly and it was very reasonably priced. It is slightly out of the way but I could not recommend it any higher. I would travel to receive the welcoming atmosphere and delicious food on offer in this little gem!

Very nice people who at the time of the reservation asked us if we had any special requests - dishes not on the menu. We did, had arroz do marisco and it was wonderful. Excellent advise for accommodating wines. The grilled prawns as a starter are a true treat. Try this place out, you will not be disappointed.

A small restaurant on the outskirts of Albufiera, very good food with excellent & friendly service. This is our 2nd time here in a week, well worth a visit.

Dessert of apple crumble with ice cream was also very, very good - we shared and they put am extra scoop of ice cream on it. Cappuccinos were also nice,... More

We found this restaurant last year while on holiday. When we returned this year the waiter recognised us! It's a fantastic family run restaurant. You can take as long as you like to eat. No rush whatsoever. Food superb. Portugese steak and homemade desserts not to be missed. I ordered apple crumble one night but the waiter wouldn't serve it... More

We read so many good reviews of this place but foolishly relied on the address shown for this on trip advisor. Warning do not use this information or you will find yourself at least 10km away from real location.
