“Typical Portuguese restaurant offering a very wide choice of menu”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

Last year there were two Migalhas restaurants and the one in the main street now appears closed.This one is a bit off the beaten track so you have to seek it out.Internally it is very smart and the tables are suitably spaced out. Appeared very busy with repeat customers meeting & greeting the staff. Menu very comprehensive.We started with the parma ham and melon which was a very generous portion and well presented. For mains I had steak on the stone which you actually cook at the table to your own liking.A unique and different experience for me which was excellent.My wife had shrimps on the spit which once again was excellent and again well presented with various side dishes of salad & potatoes & veg. The waiter was of a good standard and generally it was an enjoyable overall dining experience which was not hurried like in some restaurants.Will definately return in 2013. This restaurant deserves a much higher ranking and should be in the top six.

“Good Portuguese Cuisine for family and friends”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2012

Very well located within the main street in Monte Gordo's beach village. Features all sort of portuguese classic cuisine, very firendly service, and very handy for larger families ans group of friends during busy summer nights in town. Try also the local seafood offers.

“great service, good food, good entertainment”

Tried out this restaurant for the first time. Has got Fado on a Tuesday night which creates good atmosphere. Food is good, you can have dish of the day or tourist menu all great value for money would recommend and will go again.

“Good standard of food and service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2011

Nice atmosphere restaurant with good welcome feeling..free aperitive & digestive drink given nice touch for a first visit.. Waiters friendly & efficient....Food I would describe as good standard but not outstanding...Typical good standard tourist restaurant with a wide menu on offer.. I had the recommended mixed meat kebab which was well presented on a hanging spit but it contained too much sausage for my liking so on reflection I would have had the veal or beef kebab. The price was quite reasonable for the standard & quality of food....The restaurant was busy reflecting its popularity.
