The best restaurant you can find in Armacao the Pera

This is a really good restaurant to go to when you are on a holiday in Armacao the Pera in Portugal. The food is excellent and the waiters very nice. Ask for Antonio and you will have a great evening. We went there several times and it was always top. Have a nice holiday.

Went to this restaurant at the start of our holiday and ended up going back twice. Why? Simply the food, we had fish a lot, was amazing. Especially the fist catalpana for two, although seriously there is enough served for four. The staff are brilliant, were really lovely to our two children, and gave us a doggy bag for the... More

We stayed at Vilalara thalassotherapy resort as bed & breakfast, so this was the one of the closest restaurants from us and all the reviews were very good, that's why we decided to go here. My husband ordered Portuguese style of steak and I had spaghetti with prawn and we are so disappointed the steak was tough and chewy my... More

Went to this restaurant tonight as we made a joint decision to find the closest, seemingly nicest restaurant judging by the previous reviews on trip advisor, well here's mine ! We were shown inside by our choice to a corner table and waited and waited until I summoned a waiter over to order drinks even though we were not shown... More

Having visited last year we took the precaution of booking in advance as we drove past. No problem, in fact we arrived early and were seated immediately and service was very prompt. Our waiter was very helpful in describing the menu and explaining the ingredients and methods. Opted for Portuguese Fillet Steak and the Chicken Cataplana, both cooked to perfection.... More

We found this restaurant whilst in Armacao de Pera on holiday last week. It is situated on the edge of the town which was not a problem as we had hired a car. The staff are friendly and welcoming and the food excellent, especially the spaghetti with prawns and the dover sole. Obviously a popular restaurant as there were other... More

Had a beautiful meal here, the Portuguese steak is highly recommended - the portions are massive! The staff were really friendly and it was toddler friendly too. We'll definitely visit here again!

We found this little restaurant just a few metros off the main tourist area. While we were reading the sandwich board menu a British man was coming out of the restaurant, approached us and highly recommended the place for excellence and value. We decided to give it a whirl, and boy were we delighted. Food was excellent, service great and... More
