The restaurant looks a not 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

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!

We have eaten here many times over the past three years when staying in Porches, and we have never been disappointed. It's our first choice when we arrive, and we dine here on our last night, as well as visiting a couple of other times while we're in the area. We're always assured of a warm welcome from the owner...

Our last night here and we weren't sure where to go, we heard they would do a veggie option if asked so we went for it rather than going back to Vila Italia or the excellent New Delhi. Bit of a mistake though. Chicken kebab was seemingly unseasoned and fairly flavourless, Veggie kebab was mostly raw, steak with onions and... More

My son ordered so called mixed meat kebab (beef & pork), it might aswell... More

This is the restaurant for locals - lucky them! Stood waiting for a table whilst the owner finished his conversation with another staff member before seating us, leaving my wife and I standing awkwardly wondering who were the staff. After seating us, I choose the local sardines for a starter which were delicious. The mains arrived and they were awful.... More
