Local, superb atmosphere...

It seemed to be a bar for local people, but we like it. Actually it was recommended by Antonio from our hotel, so we were there... the restaurant was not sophisticated, but local atmosphere and nice staff was everything we expected. Really yummy food for good prices made it unforgettable. ..

Freshly cooked, local ingredients, the food in this unassuming little restaurant, was delicious. The friendly welcome from Goncalo followed by his offer, free of charge, of a taste of his special, mackerel, onions and garlic washed down by crisp vinho verde, started the evening off very well indeed. Our group of four moved on to delicious prawns, melon and ham... More

Have been going to this restaurant for years and have never been disappointed. Good quality food served by happy staff. Last night we had the cuttlefish, sardines, fried prawns, pork with clams and fish kebab. All were excellent. Nice traditional restaurant setting with many locals - something that seems increasingly hard to find on the Algarve these days. Don't be... More

Provided with lovely fresh fish ( shared helpings of prawns followed by sea bass, sole and garoupa) only spoiled by typical Portuguese vegetables! The fish could not have been bettered, the noisy cafe atmosphere most stimulating, and all provided with the most welcoming service. As always, an excellent visit.

We drove by this place many times without stopping until we decided to try it. The outside appearance is unassuming but as you enter you discover a large dining room which can accomodate probably more then 50 people. Staff is courteous and friendly and the owner comes to your table to greet you. Food was excellent as well as the... More

We enjoyed a meal on a Thursday evening in February; the usual wonderful food that is served at O Nosso. We do enjoy their fish! On the Sunday, we realised we had left a handbag there. Problem: O Nosso is closed on Sundays and there was a flight to catch on Sunday afternoon!!! Once we had managed to get in... More
