We came here after a disappointing experience somewhere else and we were so glad we did!. The setting of the restaurant was lovely, the staff were great, very accommodating and friendly and the food was delicious. They had a great menu and really good choice for fish lovers but something for everyone if not a fan. I would definitely recommend... More

This is a very easy restaurant for us to get to as we have a time share less than 100 m away. And that makes us very lucky as it really is one of our favourites. We eat here at least once every time we come and I can honestly say we have never been disappointed. Our latest visit last... More

My husband and I ate here last night. I had sardines for starters with channel bass for the main. I am not normally a fish eater but I am now converted. Both were delicious. My husband had prawn and avocado for starters and steak Portuguese style for the main. Both were delicious. We will definitely eat here again before the... More

We ate at O Salmao last night. We hadn't booked a table but recommend that you do as many tables were reserved. There were 4 adults and 3 children in our party. The waiters couldn't have been more attentive and were incredibly friendly. We ordered from the specials menu and from the main printed menu. The food was exceptional and... More

The food here is delicious. 7 of us dined here this evening, 2 adults and 5 children, and everyone loved their food. Well worth it.

Out with friends for dinner, disappointing. Food was well presented and good flavour but service was very slow, took too long between courses

Close to the resort we were staying, quinta do praiso, located in a square with bars and restaurants. We entered at 1915 and left at 2130 without dessert as we felt this would take another hour or so. The menu is good and enough to choose from. Quality of the food is very good. Staff works hard but we had... More

The restaurant offers quite a selection of food. Our food was nice but my fish seemed to be cooked from frozen not fresh. The staff are attentive and friendly.

A family run restaurant with style, smiles and very very good food!! This restaurant makes you smile, everyone is treated as a friend and the welcome is warm. The food is first class and cooked to order, fresh is the name of the game. All of our group were happy to return and the nine year olds loved it.. The... More
