The restaurant is nice clean, not too dark. The service is very kind, friendly, even attentif. We did spent around € 100 for 2 menu's and a good bottle of wine. I guess in the menu the food is a bit too commercial, too touristic. I did miss freshness in it. But yes, what was served was correct. For a... More

The restaurant's interior sets it apart from many here at the Algarve. It clearly conveys ambition which csn also be seen in the menue. Carefully chosen combinations show a high standard when it comes to cooking. And the standards are met. We had a fine dinner, fish and meat, which were frehsly prepared and very good. we would have liked... More

I have been here twice now and I would have given it an 'excellent' review for the first time which was a set meal on valentines and surprisingly the better one. The staff were more attentive to my dietary requirements (vegetarian) and seem to find it no trouble at all to bring out course after course of vegetarian food. However... More

What a fantastic Restaurant with Haute Cuisine style menu, which included not only an A La Carte but four set menus of differing prices. We had Menu three which comprised five courses all were well presented and wonderful flavours, the staff were extremely helpful and spoke excellent English. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

We visited this restaurant on the Saturday of our visit & arrived quite late. the service was excellent, the food to die for & the ambience in the restaurant excellent. We were the only non locals there. A bit more pricey than the other places we saw but worth the extra. Try it.

On arrival we were served with beautifully prepared and presented canopes and cocktails. Our table was specially decorated. Our guests had a choice of 3 Tasting Menus or A... More
