Delicious lunch in comfortable relaxed surroundings with delightful staff, not overly attentive but there whenever we needed something. Great value meal, three courses with house red wine and a beer before for 52 euros. Easily worth more. Delicious home made pate with perfect amount of salad on the plate and a fish soup to start. Monkfish and sea bass for... More

I note from a previous review sombody wrote about something out of a Tin, well I can assure you if the Fish Soup was out of a tin the guy that put it in the tin would be worth a fortune. Robert's Fish Soup is the best I have ever had and he even gave me the recipe, but I... More

i have read the 4 and 5 star reviews and whilst I agree with parts of them don't get carried away with the fact that the owner and the young waiter are very pleasant and amiable which some times overshadows the main subject which is the food. The mushroom couvert were bland and obviously out of a tin. The main... More

What a fabulous place to stuble across. Nothing stands out about this place as you walk past, but to walk past is a sin. This is a superb treat of a place. The cuisine is as traditional as can be. The staff are just an addition to the splendour. Absolutely brilliant.

A warm welcome from Chef Robert and his front of house team augured well for a delicious dinner for four in the Lemon Tree in Almancil in November 2014. We enjoyed a mix of daily specials - including flavoursome fish soup and warm prawn salad, shin of beef and golden bream, together with menu regulars such as home made pate... More

This restaurant from the outside looks rather unfashionable, don't be put off by that appearance. It's run by some people from Scotland and full marks to them they have integrated perfectly with the Portuguese and appear to be very popular with the locals. The dishes on the menu are predominantly from the Alentejo region of Portugal so you have a... More

We are annual visitors to the Algarve and have kept "The Lemon Tree" on our restaurants list over many years. There is a comforting familiarity about the place that adds to the friendly service and excellent food. Fish dishes are the main attraction and always cooked to perfection. The mixed vegetables, these do not vary, also nicely complement the dishes.... More

Been going to the Lemon Tree since it first opened and I have not been disappointed at all in the 10 years. The food is very good and very reasonably priced for such an expensive area. There is a good selection of food available and the vegetables that come with the food are first class. There is also a good... More
