“Super Family Run Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2012

Have visited this restaurant over the past 5 years and the food is consistently of high quality.

Steak or prawns on a stone are an experience not to be missed as is one of our favourites Chicken Raff. Vegetables and salads always fresh. The family are attentive and helpful with choices of wines. Easy parking outside.

Local paintings (available to buy) on the walls (all the scarves have been removed!) - very Portugese ambience.

“The best meal of the holiday”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2011

O Tiago is a bit tucked away - just behind the Intermarche supermarket and next to the church in Budens but it is well worth a visit. The walls are festooned with football scarves and there is a TV playing football with the sound turned off. There are only a dozen or so tables so it maybe advisable to book in peak season.

The fillet steak in mushroom sauce was cooked to perfection and the clams O Tiago came in a great cream sauce and the cook even came out to ask us what we thought of the meal. Good value house wine and attentive service throughout. Highly recommended.

“A very English experience”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2011

Well after following trip advisors reviews we went to the restaurant. Friendly staff but if ribs, tomato soup, egg mayo and steak are your thing then head on down. Stone grill ok but surrounded with football scarves didn't really do much for the ambience.

“What a find.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2011 via mobile

Venue is quaint. The food is fabulous. The staff could not be more accommodating, especially with a 2 year old child. We will be coming back.
