Consistently Good

We went to this place for dinner 3 times and every time the whole family enjoyed. Everything we ordered was very enjoyable each time and the price was fairly reasonable.

Some standard coverts have the same price as main courses, which is confusing. The menu pricing is not well built. The staff is very nice and try their best to serve us nicely. Overall the food didn't had the level of salt I would expect but it wasn't bad. Not wonderful food but also not bad.

Not a bad find although feels a little 'dated'. The kind of place you would have expected to frequent in the UK back in the 70s.

This Restaurant does not impress at first sight. Nothing wrong with it but it looks a bit dated. Id heard it was quite good so we ignored first impressions. It was quite early at 7:30 so it was not busy. It began to fill up later but throughout the staff were very attentive without being pushy. The food was really... More

All the other places we ate in the area were great, so the Grelhador stood out as a miserable experience. The food was poor but was priced as if it was something special. And the waiter managed to make us feel like cheapskates when we didn't want a desert. They need a new chef, a price cut, and a better... More

Great food but we sat outside, which was really too warm. Wish we had sat inside with the air conditioning. Fish brought to table for us to choose from. The kebabs were fabulous. Would go back but inside. Some evenings the do a 3 course meal for 12.50 Euros, great value.

We dined here about halfway through our holiday, it was the cheaper of the 2 restaurants we had decided to choose from. From the outside it looks old and rustic, a good thing we thought for traditional cooking. There is a inside dining area and a outside covered area which we chose being smokers. The waiter was an older guy... More

We ate here last night. We are at the end of a two week holiday in the algarve and ate out every night, in the main I have been very pleased, however we had a different experience here. My partner is vegetarian and overall she is not well catered for in portugal-choices are limited to say the least. She chose... More

We visited here in june and staff were very friendly and inviting. The food was the best I've tasted in Portugal. I had the monk fish kebab and this was so fresh and delicious. My partner had the steak in mushroom sauce and it was cooked to perfection. This restaurant is definitely worth a visit.
