We noticed that it was one of the busier restaurants in town,, and no one came to harass us when we were looking at the menu, so we gave it a try & were very happy we did!! The Tuna steak was brilliant, and HUUUUGE. Between us we tried the Tuna steak, Sea Bass, vegetarian pizza, tagliatelle, Spaghetti, Swordfish -... More

I love this restaurant for lunch. It's nicely situated in the main eating area and the food is good if not high end cuisine. Staff are friendly and reasonably priced.

We only went in to this restaurant as it was right in front of the hotel where we stayed and after extensive searching and not finding a restaurant that would have a dish called "Carne de Porco á Alentejana" Alentejano Pork (Alentejo it is the next region north from the Algarve), we gave up and just decided to go to...

Always eat here at least once when visiting as the squid cooked in olive oil and garlic is the best in town. If you're brave enough - give it a go, you won't be disappointed. Staff are friendly and the service is good. If you want to sit outside you have to get there early even in late season.

Pretty good on the whole with pleasant food and good beer but one lunch time waited so long and no-one took our order so we left.So many places to go that we didn't return.

We came across this place hoping for somewhere that did a good cataplana and were not disappointed. The cataplana was monkfish, clam and shrimp, a good combination all in generous amounts and lots of potatoes, peppers and onions. The sauce was very tasty and there was plenty of it, and wet wipes were provided as is always advisable with cataplana.... More

This gem of a restaurant is a must if holidaying in the algarve. Fantastic value, huge portions and friendly service make this street side restaurant a real gem. The pork and the lamb are both lovely, cooked and served to perfection. A lovely compliment to a lovely town.

We dined in this restaurant on Friday 12th September while on a family holiday to Lagos. Over the years, we've eaten here several times without reason to complain, so had no expectation of anything less. They did not have a table for 6 outside straight away, which was no problem, so we said we would sit at a table inside... More

We only dived in to this restaurant as it was chucking down but it turned out to be ok. Situated on the main drag it would normally be the sort of place I'd avoid to eat as a tourist trap. However it proved to be friendly, with good service and the food was quite good. The sardines I had were... More
