Real Portugese Food

An excellent place to taste and experience the food of Portugal . The staff and servers are friendly and very helpful - and when you leave your Portugese vocabulary has increased. It is great to be challenged to speak the native language - but it a fun way . This restaurant was so good we went 2... read more

Can't comment on the evening menu but the lunch-time 'prato da dia' is fantastic value and always half a dozen choices of very traditional Portuguese food including fresh fish nearly every day. Usual bread and olives to start (with butter and sardine paste if you ask) drink of your choosing plus main meal followed by a sweet and coffee all... More

Leonel's Restaurant in Algoz in the Algarve is very Portuguese - unpretentious and friendly, great food and great value . It caters well for the local Portuguese and the expats who are lucky enough to find it, and Leonel and his small band of staff look after you very well. We have eaten there on sevreal occasions, both at lunchtime... More

Leonel's is a very nice restaurant, in the center of Algoz. The food is absolute above standard quality for a very friendly price. The steaks are big and juicy, the service is very good. Absolutely recommended when you are in the neighborhood.

Well, it just goes to show that a restaurant that's number 2 on a list of 36 doesn't mean it deserves it ! Location as others have stated should be changed from Silves to just Algoz, I don't care if it is classed as Silves County or municipality ...... point being it's 12 Km away from Silves town or city....

We eat here week in week out, always top quality and Leonel is a fantastic host. Top steaks and local dishes with a great atmosphere. Get there early in the summer or make a reservation as it is always full.

What a lovely restaurant to dine in. I visited with my family and the staff were very friendly and the food was great. It was shame we visited on our last evening before returning home as we would have definitely returned again for another meal.

Our local haunt, can't speak more highly about Leonel and his staff. Great food, fabulous service with friendly banter, nice surroundings, and exceptional value for money - especially at lunchtime. Cannot find any fault
