Have been to Agarve several times over the years, sometimes more than once a year. Since the very first time in 2002 when we first frequented this restaurant in Vale de Para, we have been welcomed back as regulars each time we visit. Would highly recommend this family run restaurant, and have... read more

The restaurant "o girassol" is in Parchal (Lagoa - Algarve) in Rua Infante Sagres, near the bridge to Portimão. The food is simply excellent, especially the fish, always fresh. The place is poor, but very clean and the attendance is good. The prices are formidable (7,5€ full menu - 10€ at sundays). Lots of sweet desserts... the best choice for... More

Restaurante Girassol is actually on the main road in Parchal, very near to the railway station (which is in Parchal but called Ferragudo, strange!). I have visited this restaurant a couple of times, 1st time for lunch then on an evening. The food on both occasions was very good as well as the service. At lunch time the customers are... More

We read a review from our hotel (Agua Riverside hotel) that recommended this restaurant. On arrival, we thought - typical Portuguese restaurant. The only other people in there were a group of working men, throughout our meal they stared at us which made us (2 young females) very uncomfortable. Although, once we ordered food we were pleasantly surprised as it... More

I am currently working out here and have tried many different restaurants in the local area. Girassol snackbar ( Sunflower) is the best of the bunch! The food is so reasonably priced for the quality of the food. It is spotlessly clean and Paula and the other girls that work in here treat you like family. Lovely atmosphere, great food... More

Lovely restaurant. Brightly decorated which gives it a feeling of airiness. Always a friendly welcome from Luis and Sonja. Have been visiting here for over 10 years and have never been disappointed.
