We recently ate here twice in a week and had excellent food. The local fish and seafood is wonderful here and my partner had the best steak he's had in a while. All in all O Grelhador is an excellent place to eat.

As this is near to our accommodation, O Grelhador has been a convenient spot the last few years for dinner. Other years the food was just average (excellent service tho) but this year our meals were really poor. (I was generous is rating this "average" but did take into account other years.) Last week my husband had tasteless rubbery cod... More

We've been coming to this restaurant for 24 years. It is the best in the area. Great service and traditional food. Try their steak (or liver) Portugese style. Also their fried prawns are fabulous (especially if you like garlic). For dessert you won't beat their pudding flan (crème caramel) or Portugese molotov.

This restaurant is also not far from the Hotel Viking although it is up a steep bank and just a little further up the road than the Vila De Italia and right at the junction on the opposite side to the Blues bar. We called in at lunch time for a drink and a nosey to see what it was... More

In February, when many restaurants in the area are taking a well-earned break, O Grelhador stays open and delivers great food and service. Slightly dearer than other places, with the tourist menu at about 12 euros (for soup, main, dessert, coffee, and half a bottle of wine), you get the extra quality you pay for, and it's well worth paying...

I was taken to O Grelhador years ago by friends who live locally and have always made a point of having at least one meal there when I stay in the area. Jose is a charmer and makes a point of welcoming guests to his restaurant, i've never been there without him being in attendence. His staff are professional and... More

We were so glad to have found this place! We visited a few times and were not disappointed. The service staff are welcoming and friendly, and extremely professional. Nothing was too much trouble for them. Food choice was excellent, and quality was fabulous. I would highly recommend!
