The place was packed when we visited on a Saturday night, luckily a friend had booked. Couvert was traditional, olives well marinated plus a nice bit of cheese which was not expensive. I was a bit fearful when the chicken piri piri turned up as it looked like the sauce was very, very hot, and being... read more

There are 2 reasons for dining here. First the prices. Very good value for money. Secondly in my opinion it serves the best chicken piri-piri in the Algarve. This would also explain why this restaurant is always busy.

We were trying to find somewhere to eat that was not very expensive. We had passed this restaurant a number of time and decided to give it a go. From the outside it does not look much, however on entering it is clean and tidy. The staff were attentive and took our order quickly. When the food turned up, there... More

Value for money is good. We eat at Marufo regularly and a number of TA reviews claim Leonels is better food and cheaper.... More

A group of us visited this restaurant for an impromptu meal. We were greeted by warm and friendly staff. We all ordered Chicken piri piri, the best we had ever tasted. The meat was so succulent and juicy and there was ample salad and french fries to complement the dish. The food was delivered quickly to our table, very hot.... More

This is just the best restaurant for chicken and chips in the area! Excellent value for money, excellent food always busy lunchtimes and evenings with locals, no need to say any more. If you are in Loule, do not miss out on this gem of a restaurant.
