We had dinner at the Lemon Tree in July 2014. We were so disappointed. My husband had the calves liver and it came swimming in some sort of gravy and the onions were raw. My lemon chicken did not smell good and again it was swimming in a sauce which was more of a soup. Both meals were not good... More

Visited this after reading review's, it's a wonderfull location and very relaxed atmosphere, we had the seafood risotto and the chicken risotto with salad, they were ok but both were very dry, for a risotto and also bland, the salad was very good and the house sangria was the best we have had locally. It's a shame as I was... More

Not the most attractive of settings or interiors, but a good value lunch is always served. The staff are friendly and attentive. The owners often come to have a chat and make everyone feel welcome.

We discovered this gem of a restaurant on our last evening in the Algarve. We've been here a week and tried out various restaurants in the area some recommended, some not. Can not recommend this restaurant highly enough. I read few critical reports re decor, furniture but no one criticised the food which is why we tried it and thank... More

We were there the other night and I had the Fish Soup (again) and it was terrific. My main course was fish, it... More

Robert is not only a good chef, serving large portions, but also very attentive. The lunchtime prices are very competitive and while the sweets, at 5 euros, are dearer than... More
