Dinner for two

My wife and I ate here last night mainly off the back of the positive reviews on Trip Advisor and I and pleased to say the other reviewers got it spot on. We both had excellent meals and a lovely bottle of red. Great restaurant and a must if you're visiting the Algarve.

It's a real pleasure coming here. We've been coming a few years now and have never been disappointed. The menu is always interesting. The food is beautifully cooked and well presented. The courtyard, outdoor atmosphere a real pleasure in summer. Can't wait to go back!

We had a wonderful 5 course degustation meal at this restaurant, it was a delightful dinner, we chose to have a selection of Portuguese wines paired with the meal which made for an excellent dining experience. The staff were wonderful and very attentive and we would highly recommend a visit. The relaxed and low key atmosphere was exactly what we... More

Nice little gem in porches town where there doesn't seem to be much else. Service has a family feel but they take it seriously and so felt very pampered, tapered a little as they got busier though. Intra course appetisers were a nice touch. Looked after our children very well and were very accommodating given was quite posh affair. Like... More

This is a hidden gem of a restaurant in the delightful town of Porches. Having read the reviews, it was a must do on our holiday. The welcome and service was outstanding and the food was fantastic. The dishes were beautifully presented and imaginative. After dinner we sat on the terrace with coffee and port and watched the sun go... More

We felt like 'insiders' stumbling on to this really special quiet place, away from the crowds. We were warmly welcomed and then seated on the small terrace to enjoy our first glass of wine, almost as if you were visiting friends. Each dish was beautifully present (sorry my pictures don't do justice). Local and seasonal and fresh. We were very... More

You are only likely to find this little gem of a place via trip advisor - its hidden away in the backstreets of Porches, behind the church. It's an unassuming place, with a small interior and a modest terrace. But this place is all about the food, which I would describe as casual fine dining - very fresh ingredients, cooked... More

The restaurant is a little hidden near the church in Porches. The review will be fairly short. The reason is not that there is not much to say but rather that the important message is short and we do not want to steal the surprise: The place had a lot of charm, the food was just awesome (with some of...
