A very pleasant surprise

Wife and I visited for 3 evening meals last week. Good wholesome Portuguese cuisine. Sea Bass and Lemon Sole were excellent! Served with wholesome local potatoes and veg. Staff very friendly and attentive. Whole heartedly recommend.

Very popular local restaurant for visiting people from other areas in Portugal on business staying at the Jardinets hotel opposite. Very typical fresh home made food. Husband and wife team. Decor traditional. Recommended. Lunch and dinner. Good quality food.

This family run restaurant is next door to the Hotel Jardim and many guests eat there, and also locals and others. It is the traditional whitewash and blue trim decor in a fairly large room + TV (but with the sound off). They also have a few tables outside in good weather, and we ate both in and outside. The...

We were staying over night at the excellent Loulé Jardim Hotel and luckily Afonso 111 is just over the road. The four of us were given a very warm welcome by the charming waiter, he was delightful & friendly throughout the whole evening and it was very busy for a Wednesday night, lots of locals eating there too. Good honest... More

As a previous reviewer put its good honest well cooked food. What I liked was that things were served in different ways it wasn't just chips with everything. One steak came with rice and red beans (and a few chips of course). The house red was a real bargain and the chocolate mousse very nice. Staff were lovely and very... More

Not "haute cuisine" but good honest well cooked food at fair prices. Try the sole fillets, the Portuguese smoked sausages for lunch, when available are delicious. The wine list is varied and reasonably priced. I would recommend booking for the evening. Good choice of desserts for those with "room left" for one.

Although I have only given this restaurant a rating of three, it's a bit better than that - more like a three and a half. Decent enough soup, nice sauce with the Portuguese steak, my wife's chicken piri-piri was a bit underwhelming though, not hot (spicy) enough for her iron stomach and it wasn't served with salad, which is what...
