Malveiro has dishes one cannot miss: Stewed veal, Lamb in a tille and the exquisite curries. All to be washed down with surprising wine choices by the very attentive owner. The taste of home made food served in an elegante environment.

When we arrived he opened the door for my wife and I, and made as feel very welcome.The waitress was really good and recommended the house white wine,... More

My wife and I accidentally stumbled across this hidden gem as we searched for a local restaurant on foot, having arrived in Portugal quite late. The place was absolutely packed but the staff made us welcome and reconfigured tables to accommodate us. It didn't take long before we realised our luck was in! Malveiro has a special atmosphere, created by... More

You could easily drive by Resturante Malveiro and not notice it, what a mistake you would make!!. Malveiro is a hidden gem run by a fantastic individual who exudes passion in relation to his restaurant. Menu choice caters for all tastes but the Curry offerings are fantastic. I have been raving about this restaurant and have been remiss in not... More

Visited: 12/09/14 Overall: 8/10 I would recommend booking early and requesting a seat in the front conservatory. I think with an early time slot you will benefit from the best of the service also. All of the food looked great, my prawn curry was very tasty & the prices are much more reasonable than some of the more touristy restaurants.... More

We ate here after a business meeting, I had heard a lot about the restaurant. The food is brilliant, the starters just kept coming and were beautiful. The highlight of my meal was the king prawn curry, the prawns were huge, there was 3 of them, at least 25 to 30 cm in length. I cant wait to go back.... More

Great value for Money for the Algarve standards. The place and view are not premium to say the best but the food is really great. Without wine we paid around 45€ for a couple which is very reasonable for what we had. I would strongly recommend this place.
