The views from the outside terrace are fantastic.The service was always good and the food wonderful. we discovered that we could order just one dish and share it between two because... More

Great view from the patio and lovely food, would recommend this place. My husband really enjoyed the black pork with bread mash and I had vegetable soup and hake. The fish was good quality and tasty, came with chips, rice and salad. Service was good. Bit crowded inside as it wasn't a warm day, we had to move our chairs... More

The food is as spectacular as the view. The service speaks several languages and takes good care of their clients. There are good vegetarian option, and great grill meat.

Do you go to a restaurant primarily for the view? In this case a resounding yes as the panorama that awaits you from this lofty eating spot is simply breathtaking. Sit outside on a warm day with a cool glass of wine and a relaxing Lunch and you will not be disappointed. Keep away from the Tourist Menu and choose... More

At Luar da Foia, you´ll find a wonderfull mountain view over the seaside (more enjoyable during summer, but really cosy in winter). This is the ont the best, if not the best Restaurant with these attributes you´ll find at Monchique. Just take care of what you eat as starters, because you´ll no "space" for you meal :) . Medium prices,... More

We walked to this restaurant from Villa Vida Nova where we were staying so that was convenient. We had a lovely meal here, Wild boar with plums, fresh grilled fish and black pork, all was cooked to perfection but the portions were too big, one wild boar would do two people, we have since learned that you can order one...

We had Sunday lunch here on the advice of a local. I think I chose badly as my 'lamb in the oven' was nearly all bone and was hard to distinguish as lamb. Rather tough and accompanied by rice and potatoes. The orange and watercress salad was lovely. My husband had pork strips with bread mash. The pork was fine,... More

From other reviews I expected better. It really was just average food, but above average prices. The meze starter, that is placed on the table to start, cured ham slices (some curling dry & chewy in our case), olives, cheese,bread etc, comes at a not inconsiderable cost, if you are trying to budget your meal. Prawns (2) & calamari skewer... More
