Super service

A more sophisticated restaurant than others in the resort! Excellent service and good food. A little more expensive but well worth a visit.

Good here is very nice, good price. I did slightly feel like the waiting staff were hovering around whilst my family and I were trying to eat, and they also cleared the table whilst some of us were still eating.. The interior is lovely and they have a good selection of food. The Portuguese steak here is nice and would... More

Visited this restaurant for the first time. Had the Portuguese steak and it was excellent. Have it cooked rare to med. Good decor and well kept restaurant, which has a touch of class. Yes you will get olives, bread and carrots without asking for them but it's OK. Carrots are in garlic and olive oil, bread was nice and came... More

I had the set menu at €12.95 and it was very good value for money. My husband had the beef stroganoff which was a different version than the usual stroganoff but he said it was excellent. I felt the place lacked atmosphere, and was " a bit over the top", it is after all just a restaurant on the seafront... More

Staying at Holiday Inn so very handy! Automatically bring out olives, bread and pickled carrots(?) which you get charged for. If you don't want this, reject and you won't then be charged! I had the sea bass fillets with salad which was delicious and husband had steak in a sauce which just came with a few scallop potatoes round edge... More

Ate here twice during a four day break, lunch and dinner. The quality of the food has remained consistently high over the three years we have been coming here. Very clean, eat inside or out. Friendly and attentive staff. We choose from the menu rather than the deal option, good value for the quality of the food.

Tried this lovely restaurant whilst staying at the nearby Holiday inn Algarve ( very good also) and not disappointed. This is the type of old style classic restaurant we seem to have lost in the UK. I hadn't realised how much I missed this quality of restaurant as most fare at home is Pub food style. We all had the... More
