Tried this restaurant for the first time this year and was not disappointed. Camillo the owner is a very likable friendly person and the food was very good. Hidden away in a back street in Almancil you need to know of it to find it. Will go again next year when we have our holiday again.

The warm welcome wasn't just from the log burner churning out heat, but from Camillo and the lovely lady who greeted us. We only wanted a light meal, not 3 courses and coffee, but we weren't treated any less royally than if we had. My husband had spaghetti bolognese, really tasty and very generous portion, and I had the carbonara... More

We have been to Camilios once before, 2 years ago and enjoyed our meal. This time we were attracted by his new 12.50 euro dinner deal for 2 courses. Restaurant was half full but he has a wonderful welcoming manner and the place has a good atmosphere. The starters were fine and our main courses very good. My veal milanese... More

Boxing Day night. Just arrived at the resort & saw the positive reviews for this place & decided to visit. Restaurant was quiet but the welcome was warm and friendly. Had the specials which were excellent (prawns to start, lamb or veal main). The staff were friendly, attentive, genuinely interested but got the balance just right. Can heartily recommend this...

Camillo and staff were so very welcoming. We went on a mid week night in October and had a really lovely meal. The bread with parmesan was fabulous - the parmesan was to die for! I had melon and parma ham to start - lovely, no complaints. Paul had mussels which were extremely tasty, beautifully cooked and very large. We... More

We choose Camillo's as it was near our holiday home. The outside looks like you are entering a jail, the inside is basic bright lighted (must say most restaurants ive been in Portugal lack creating a nice atmosphere by decoration). Camillo is a real nice host, one of the best of it's kind. The starters of garlicbread and toast with... More

Went there a couple of week ago with some friends, while on holiday in Quinta do Lago. Just excellent. Great food, great staff. The owner just reminded me DeVito. Very nice.
