Description: I cannot believe no one has reviewed this restaurant. The cheapest, most reliable, best service grill restaurant in Sao Bras - always busy and lots of fresh fish for us non meat eaters. Chicken and chips is 4 euros - beat that!

“Good food ,, good friends,”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

Had a very nice meal at this restaurant. Service and food were very good. We had chicken, fish, salad and even squid. This is worth going to and enjoying lunch or dinner. The town is very nice,, too . Typical Portugal charm. We liked it very much.

“The best peri peri chicken at Chicken Luis”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013 via mobile

You don't go here for the service! Having said that the food is fantastic, good atmosphere and its very cheap for what you get! A great place to go and we will definitely be returning when we return to the Algarve next year.

Always good allways busy used by locals and tourists alike, you never know who you are going to sat next to makes for a great evening, just have the bbq chicken with the pirir piri only 4 euros 50 cents, you may have to wait for seats for a few minutes due to the restaurant being busy but worth the wait

“I live here permanently”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013

More commonly known as 'chicken Luis'. Prices are going up and portions going down. Of late, the waiters have become surly, if not downright rude at times. We tried to book once for a table of about 15. The waiter just said no and walked away. Another time, the waiter knocked over my full glass of red wine and then charged us for it! No apology to the woman sitting next to me who now had the dubious benefit of red wine splashed all over her pale blue trousers. The last straw came when we were charged ;last week for the sachets of mayonnaise. They charged us for 7 sachets when we had only 5. If this isn't penny pinching I don't what is. I know, I used to run my own restaurant and these tiny sachets cost peanuts. Well, the last time WAS THE LAST TIME!
PS the chicken at the Avenida is better cooked, the service is good and smiling and overall, better value for money.

“Good food but waiter was extremely rude”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013 via mobile

Food is always good there. No fault there. But if this level of service was dished out at home in Ireland the place would be closed within weeks. Slamming the cans of fanta down on the table was a disgrace. We could not say anything bad to him because he had very poor English. Not his fault I know. Anyway. Food is good but service is brutal.
