Restaurante Girassol was spotlessly clean and comfortable when we visited it. The service was perfect and the waiter took time to explain what was on the menu and was attentive without being intrusive. I would highly recommend the scabbard fish with banana - sounds weird but is tasty.

The food was beautifully presented, and the menu slightly different to most. Excellent value meals. Lamb chops slightly overdone and thin for my liking. Wife's fish in cheesy bechamel sauce was nice.

In the beginning we went for the salads, however whatever you choose all the food is very nice. We come here since November 2014 from Santa Luzia and it's worth driving often to this wonderful restaurant. Lovely friendly people and special.

We were advised by friends who know the area around Quarteira well to definitely eat at this wonderful little restaurant and we were delighted with the quality of the food and the friendly staff. We ate there three times on our holiday and were impressed every time. It is just down the promenade from Dom Jose hotel, tucked away up... More

I have little to add to the deservedly-glowing reviews of this wonderful little restaurant. But I couldn't allow our 3 visits on a recent trip to pass by simply because other reviewers feel the same. There is a wonderful ambiance about the Girassol (it means sunflower) - and that's before the fantastic food arrives. The menu is limited - the... More

Simple lunch with couvert (with local bread) jacket potato crepes - and a few glasses of wine. Food excellent, house wine good, waiting staff attentive, sun shining, sea view. What more could you ask for? Oh, and terrific pricing!

Last year we found this hidden gem 100 yards from the Dom Jose hotel just off sea front. We had to take our friends this year even though all our meals were paid for with dbb in the Dom Jose hotel. The food is to die for delicious! The staff are friendly. It is a small restaurant but it has... More
