“perfect perfect perfect”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2012

If you only eat at one restaurant in this area (which is full of restaurants) make it this one.I have been there more than ten times, they never fail to impress me from the perfectly manicured spectacular gardens to the beautiful bathrooms not to mention the restaurant (inside) and fantastic alfresco options. Service is class food even better.Great experience greeted with complimentary champagne in the lobby and a complimentary drink after paying the bill. 2 off us had starters which included really good bread,a smashing amuse (one sardine fillet beautiful) and mains (i had lamb chops 7 of them by the way) and one desert a couple of big bottles of fizzy water and a bottle of alverino (green wine) bill was 104 euro well worth it cant wait to go back. love it

“My Favourite Restaurant in The Algarve”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

Have been going to this restaurant for over 30 years.It is still my favourite. Great choice of fish,meat etc with a first class friendly staff. Always a warm welcome from Adelinho & Paulo. Although it is always busy you are always well looked after. Not the cheapest but certainly a must every year. Duncan Sutherland,Blyth Bridge,Scotland

“In the Golden Triangle”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

This is a four star restaurant with prices to match but that being said it is very good. Service is professional, food is excellent, the wine list extensive and the house wines excellent and affordable.

You always get a friendly welcome here. Both inside and outside dining is very attractive. The food is excellent - try the grilled Sea Bass - off the bone - delicious. Recommend prior reservation

This was my third visit to this lovely restaurant over a two year period. An absolute must on my holiday.
Staff efficient, friendly and entertaining.
We sat outside on a beautiful evening last week.

Food was as always first lass - good selection.
Complimentary bread selection and grilled sardine dish - as well as a complimentary glass of champagne for my dinner guests and myself (4 of us).

Highly recommend a visit o this lovely restaurant.
