“Great!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013

Had a fantastic dinner here last night. Despite having never been there before, the owner treated us like old friends. He somehow makes every guest feel like a VIP. The food is amazing, and the service excellent. Without being intrusive or overbearing, the staff ensured that our every need was catered to and our glasses were never empty. I can't say enough great things about Couleur France -- will definitely be back!

“Simple, elegant and delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

Had a superb lunch at this lovely little place. Light delicious food, wel presented and would certainly return another time to have dinner. I had a delicious fragrant fish dish and the burger my friend had was the best either of us have ever tasted, we both had the scallops to start and they were perfect. Highly reccomended

“Our favourite in Almancil! Perfect lunch and dinner from start to finish!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013 via mobile

We went here for lunch after reading a forum on here mentioning it! First impressions were fantastic from the sleek look outside with the waterfall wall and funky signs and statue. We recieved a warm welcome from the owner and instantly felt comfortable even though it was very busy for a lunch time and we hadn't booked! The service was impeccable! We'd been to gusto at the Conrad a few nights before and even though it was less formal, the staff were just as good! I was there with my partner and his parents and we all ate something different and every one of us wereimpressed with every course! We all had starter main and dessert with wine and beers and water and we paid 40euros each! The bread was amazing, one plain and one dried fruit and almonds, it was so good that we asked if we could buy some, the owner said that we could call up next time and they would bake extra for us, the he disappeared into the kitchen and turned up with a takeaway box with some of the bread in it for us! They also give you delicious sweets and biscuits after the meal. We returned for dinner on the last night of our holiday and were not disappointed! 5 courses for 38 euros. Fantastic!!

“Always Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

This gem is tucked away in Almancil but worth finding. Leo, Bruno and all the staff readily welcome you to the wonderfully contemporary surroundings. The restaurant has been cleverly arranged to suit all weathers...from the cosy fire on cold nights, outside gardens for sunny days and light and airy indoors for inclement weather. The food is excellent and prepared with the best ingredients and flare. The set menus leave you feeling that you have had more than value for money. Leo's help in choosing wines to suit all pallets is very welcome.
My favourite restaurant on the Algarve!
