We were recommended this restaurant and at first were a little sceptical as it was about 25 minutes walk from the bus station. But it was definitely worth the journey!
The food is definitely one of the best I've had in the algarve. We had the tiger prawns as a starter and they were bigger than the size of my hand! The seafood rice included prawns, clams and a whole lobster and was very reasonably priced at €28 for 2 people, we finished with some almond cake as dessert. The best was definitely the seafood rice, I can't fault it. Although the tiger prawns were a little on e dry side for me and the almond cake is a little bit too sweet for my tastes, but overall this is an amazing restaurant and I wouldn't hesitate to visit again!
The service was also excellent, we went at lunch and the owner/chef also acts as a waiter and told us how he cooks his food which is always a nice accompaniment. He mentioned that usually it is less busier for lunches so he is able to manage on his own.
I would definitely say to go try this restaurant.
