I like a previous review don't know why it isn't more highly rated! It's the cosiest, warmest, friendliest restaurant in the algarve! Food is amazing, their Camembert is fabulous. Been a few times and is always consistently good! Sussie out front is a joy and looks after everybody excellently! We spent Christmas day there too and it was sensational, food... More

Although we have reviewed this restaurant before, we just have to return for yet another fine review. We simply do not understand why it is not more highly rated. If you are looking for traditional Portuguese cuisine – and perhaps on a short first stay one would – then this is not for you. But if you fancy something different,... More

On another visit to Portugal and, as usual, we spent a wonderful night with Sussie & Wim enjoying the fine dining and wines, great welcome and comfortable chairs next to a crackling log fire. Bliss! After a small and delectable 'amuse bouche' of cream of mushroom soup with grated parsnip, two of us had mushrooms with garlic then Thai beef... More

I had visited Cacto a number of years ago on family holidays and returned this year to find it better than ever! Suzie is an incredible host with a remarkable team who make you feel very comfortable. The food is utterly to die for, always a tremendous selection on the menu and the dishes are out of this world! Definitely... More

A lovely relaxed well decorated restaurant. Excellent service. the food was nice with great presentation. however it is not worth the exorbitant price especially for the meringue desert.

We are happy that you enjoyed our restaurant and the food served , although I find it surprising that you found us " pricy " when the prices are clearly printed on the menu , where you ordered from . the meringue that you enjoyed was 6.95 so nothing extosionate there . We work only with quality produce , sourced... More

Beautiful restaurant- completely different with the personal and ecclectic decoration and jazz selection makes it interesting, cosy and a refreshing change from homogeneous and impersonal tourist restaurants in the Algarve. The reception was warm, inviting and familiar from the hostess, who recommended dishes and wines to us. Big fondue cheese starter was delicious and unique, and unexpected 'bits' arriving (such...
