“A really nice, traditional restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

First of all, the service is fantastic. Jackie is a brilliant hostess and makes you feel welcome from the second you walk through the door. Jose, her husband, is an excellent chef and make a great team and all their food is homemade. I would recommend the piri piri chicken to anyone who likes a bit of spice in their food, as they tailor to how spicy you would like it. It's sad that they don't get many visitors in the restaurant because it really is a little gem. The outside of the restaurant isn't the most appealing, but do give the place a chance because you will be surprised.

“superb restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

The reception we recieved was superb. The food was excellent and having read previous reviews there may be a wait in busy periods but the wait is well worth it. I would recommend this restaurant. Jose and Jacklyn make you feel at home from the start. My wife is vegatarian and they will try to accomodate if possible.

“Just lovely!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

My boyfriend and I enjoyed a lovely lunch at Jollies during our recent holiday in the Algarve. We actually selected it at random when we were walking past and were both so glad that we did! We sat in the garden area at the back of the restaurant which was really nice and peaceful. The food was excellent and both Jackie and Jose were very friendly and attentive. We really couldn't have asked for more!

I can see why Jollies consistently receives such glowing reviews from it's customers and would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone considering a trip to the Olhos de Agua area!

“Even Better”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013 via mobile

We visited this gem of a restaurant for the first time in September 2012 and when we returned during May this year we could not believe it was even better. The warm welcome, great service and most importantly the wonderful traditional home cooked food meant we were regular visitors during our weeks holiday. We can wholeheartedly recommend this wonderful restaurant and bar.
