Have returned at least twice each year for the last twenty! As others have said, a simple family-run restaurant serving excellent quality food at very fair prices. Their simple tomato salad cannot be bettered, wonderful prawn and steak dishes, and why not try the Algarvian Fish Stew (with beans) if you like that sort of thing? Then clear the palate... More

This is not fine dining but the standard of the steaks and prawns are to die for. It is family friendly , the service is excellent and staff are very helpful. On the downside the (very palatable ) house wine has gone up to 8 euros a bottle! The biggest problem is actually finding the restaurant. It is situated at... More

Staggeringly good food, simple but superb! If you can cook that is. And man can the chef patron cook. A wonderful family feel to the restaurant. The family live next door. I can't compliment them enough. If you're ever at Loule train station take time to cross over the road and visit. Try the shrimp and the steaks. Out of... More

Disagree with the rave reviews. Limited starters on the menu. Steak and prawns were flavourful, but no veg or salad with main meal, and steep pricing at 15€ by Portuguese standards. No Portuguese eating at the restaurant, solely holidaymakers and ex-pats renders the atmosphere insular.

I have been to this little gem several times over the years and have never been disappointed with this family run restaurant. I was surprised to find I like bacalhau (at least until having it here). The restaurant is tucked away and hard to find but well worth the find

Every time we go to this area we always visit and we are never disappointed. We always have the best prawns and steak in the area. It is family run and so a true Portuguese experience. It has a basic decor inside.

Great local food with a local atmosphere which is refreshing compared to the endless tourist packed restaurants. Good value too. The prawns are incredible.
