This restaurant is closed. There is nothing more to add. If you drive past there, you will see a big 'for sale' sign outside

Not a bad place but unfortunately now no longer open. We visited February 2013 but by July it was closed.

This restaurant has closed down and has been closed for months. Not sure how anyone has reviewed it recently. It is not possible they have eaten here for most of this year.

The Fat Frog is wonderful - we've been several times and the food is always excellent and beautifully presented. On that basis we would highly recommend it to anyone. The only thing is .... well ... the proprietor is just soo irritating that on our most recent trip to Portugal we were going to go and then decided we just... More

This is a small restaurant on the outskirts of town but the food is of superb quality. It is a french brasserie and bar in Portugal run by a Scotsman but the mix works. As an added bonus to a dwindling portion of the population the bar area but not the restaurant is equipped with ash trays.

Good food, lobster, steaks and deserts, but frogs legs should be fried and crispy and not braised and slimy. not cheap, but neither is any restaurant in almancil.

Very nice meal here on 3rd October. We had the two course meal for 22 euros. We had frogs legs and stuffed mushrooms to start and the steak for main. All was well cooked and good value. We didn't think it was worth paying the additional 5 euro for fillet steak as the rib eye was tasty and much more... More

Following a recommendation in our Elliotts co-ownership villa, we had dinner at the Fat Frog last week. The service was friendly and efficient, the food good and therefore price- performance better than average for this part of the Algarve. The description of the dishes delivered by "the Maitre" whist very helpful, got a bit. Wearing hen overheard being rehearsed at... More
