I go there with guests who are staying with me - family or friends. This restaurant has a very large terrace overlooking the hills below. Even in winter we had a meal outside - wild boar stew - delicious. Another speciality is baby squid with garlic in the summer, also delicious. It's a popular restaurant with foreigners, but also with... More

We had been recommended the black pork by our taxi driver from the airport, he was bang on, its amazing ! I don't eat much pork apart from bacon, but after having this at a... More

Monchique is a lovely little town definitely worth a visit and I can recommend this restaurant just outside the town. Sitting outside looking over the mountains to the coast is lovely. There is an extensive menu with many local specialities. The veal cheek and roast leg of pork were delicious and melt in the mouth but we were disappointed by... More

Excellent meal in a great location. Service was very quick and nothing was too much trouble. Good range of dishes available to cater for all tastes. We will certainly be going back (in the next few days!).

Went there based on the reviews on Tripadvisor and was not disappointed at all. Had the wild boar with chestnuts and another dish, but me and my wife were only able to finish the first one event though we were very hungry when we got there (the other dish we had packed to go). To drink we got a delicious... More
