This little gem was close to the hotel where we were staying. We went there almost every single day for lunch and particularly enjoyed the delicious tapas and the good selection of wines on offer. Service was always with a cheery smile and the staff were very knowledgable about the local área and the Algarve in general. Would highly recommend!!!

Excellent little cafe, offers basic but tasty snacks/light lunches for a reasonable price. Just the job for a quick lunch but with a great view from the terrace
