The restaurant looks plain and run down, however we were pleasantly surprised by the food. We had the tourist menu which was good value! Large portions and absolutely stuffed when we left. Definitely worth a visit, staff friendly and welcoming

Wasn't too sure when we first walked in but how wrong can you be. Amazing staff and front of house. Had prawn kebabs - absolutely amazing large portions - followed by fresh oranges and figs definitely 12 out of 10!!!! Never tasted such a beautiful dessert. This restaurant is a must.

You could easily accidently walk past the yellow canopy entrance to this restaurant but its well worth a visit. The grilled Bacalhau with potatoes was fantastic as was the Portuguese steak. Up there with the best Ive ever tasted. Very, very reasonably priced too. There doesnt seem to be any vinho verde on the menu so just ask your waiter... More

Great restaurant would recommend the prawn kebabs, went twice, really nice friendly place, but if you book a table don't be more than 5 minutes late as they will let it go, fair enough but be aware

We went with our two, five year old children on many occasions during our two week holiday. Both the service and the food were excellent.

We ate here on two occasions during 10 days in the Algarve. Food and service were both excellent. I would personally recommend both the monkfish kebab and the mixed (beef and pork) kebab. The kids would recommend the buttered chicken.

Lovely little local restaurant. We had the traditional fish cataplana and they were happy to hold the coriander for me! Plenty of high chairs for the kids and a good selection. The sangria was beautiful, so much so we had 3 jugs and wobbled home!
