Often driven past this restaurant. So glad our friends booked dinner here. Friendly staff, excellent food well presented, nice atmosphere. Owner operated and a real pro. Good sense of humour and attentive without being intrusive. Love that. One slight blemish was an oversight on wine for one of the party but other than that a perfect evening in wonderful company.

We ate at Malveiro last night and had a lovely evening. The host was very helpful when we made the reservation (as we thought we would be coming quite late - not a problem at all), and was at the door to greet us when we arrived. The menu is not extensive, but still has quite some variety. As we... More

Quirky. Personal touch. Great food. Very different menu and beautiful wine. I would highly recommend for all to try.

Went with a group of 20 while staying at a nearby farm, we agreed on a set menu with vegetarian option, food was very poor, owner very rude with a guest due to a mistake with one of the vegetarian option, tax bill was just a handwritten piece of paper and cash only. Why having your staff topping up water... More

Food was very good and the wine list too - buy the local wines as there is no need to spend a silly amount to get a decent bottle, so that's a nice change. Service was a tad variable - moving from over-attentive to absent. Perhaps it was a bit of an off day, but it was not busy so... More

This delightful little family run restaurant is a welcome departure from the many restaurants on the Algarve seeking the business of tourists. It is favoured by locals and on the evening we dined there we were aware of a number of different nationalities enjoying superb food at reasonable prices. Finding it proved tricky but the helpful and charming maitre d... More

This is now our third time at Malveiro - and it never disappoints! The owner chef is very hospitable, and works his craft well - he works the front of house as well and it makes for a very pleasant and personal dining experience. The Mozambique curries are delicious - just like my Mum used to make having lived in... More

Rated the best restaurant in Almancil by TA and I think its much better than that. Very family friendly, deeply laid back and very hospitable. The owners family serve, cook and front house. I had halibut in a coconut sauce with some rice, delicious and not too creamy. The rest of the mob enjoyed some very lean steak, giant prawns... More

This was a restaurant that we came across by chance whilst staying in vale do lobo. We were very fortunate to get a table, as the owner advised us that they are always very busy. So please ensure to book ahead if you do go. We quickly found out why Malveiro is so busy. Easily the nicest restaurant in the... More
