Great food - although service still slow,

We have been coming to this place for years as it serves simple, honest food at great prices. We usually go 3 or 4 times during our holiday. We had not been to Quarteira since 2013 and yet the chap that works there still recognised us and greeted us like long lost friends, shaking our hands and... read more

We've visited the Girassol many times since discovering it last summer. It's set back from the main promenade in Quarteira, but it is well worth discovering. Maria and her team of amazingly friendly waiters have got things perfectly balanced here. The choice of dishes on the main menu and the daily specials offer you a real variety of fresh tasty...

Having given this restaurant an unfavourable review 2 years ago I am pleased to report the previous high standards are once again in evidence in both the food and very attentive and friendly staff. It is not on the main promenade but well worth paying a visit.

We've eaten dinner twice at this lovely restaurant. Both times it's been buzzing with people...always a good sign. Good menus with daily specials. The fish with banana, bream and swordfish were perfectly cooked. Staff sre friendly and attentive without being intrusive. Highly recommended. The pin on the trip advisor app is in the wrong place, so find the giraffe on... More

What looks from the outside as a little cafe and uninspiring, is in fact a lovely restaurant of an evening which is always full of customers so this speaks for itself. This place is well run with friendly waiters and great food. This restaurant was recommended to us by people staying at our gusthouse, and did not disappoint. The garilc... More
