Best meal for years

Too many superlatives to describe this fabulous restaurant. Location, ambiance, fantastic food and off the Richter scale service. The wine was like having an angel dancing on my tongue and the steak....only Argentinian has come close. A special word of thanks to Constantin Popescu, one of the... read more

We were seated outside in the court yard by the very welcoming front of house team. I had a beautiful passion fruit cocktail whilst we considered the menu. The appetisers were delicious, honey, cheese and bread. We shared a mixed fish starter which was all very yummy, followed by a huge steak, cooked to perfection and accompanied by sweet potatoes...

This restaurant has it all. Top class beautiful setting, top class service and top class food. Expensive but doesn't get much better than this. Certainly one not to be missed.

Lovely setting in the garden of an old house (indoor seating in poor weather). Outside of the local piri piri restaurants it was the best quality and flavoursome meal we had. Scallops and the lobster and iberico ham starters recommended and good portion sizes. Spinach gratin also very tasty.

Wow!! Happened upon this place when over in the area on a Golf holiday, and it was the absolute highlight of the trip. The steak (there are other options, but you'll want to go for steak really) was probably the best I've ever eaten. I thought Hawksmoor in London was good, but I reckon this just tops it. Sides were... More

This restaurant is out of this world, i loved the atmosphere a truly award winning concept. The best food i've tasted full stop, let alone in the algarve. I wish they'd do something like this in london. The meat is unbelievable and the prices are good value. Staff are out of this world friendly and go that extra mile to... More

Went here twice in oct. Surroundings are superb and the food is mainly steaks. They are cooked to perfection but I do object to charging for all the extras in particular your choice of sauce. This should be included in the basic price. The staff are good and helpful. We had a prawn starter and ribeye steaks. Could not fault... More
