“Always first class”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2014

Have eaten here every year for the past 15 years or so, and have never been let down. Cannot understand why it it not more busy when other more expensive but less good establishments in the immediate vicinity are full. Food and service excellent, and prices very reasonable.

“Hard to beat in the Food Golden Triangle!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2013 via mobile

We first visited this restaurant three years ago, on New Year's Eve and were exceptionally well looked after then, and thus on our first return to this area since then, we had to come back. Our 2nd visit was just as good as the first time! The owner is warm and welcoming and certainly knows how to look after his customers.
We all had excellent starters and then two of us had the chateaubriand (which was amazing!) and the third had a full grilled sea bass. The French Pinot Noir complimented the meal perfectly and the owner then matched our desserts with a couple of glasses of gorgeous sweet wine.
We thoroughly enjoyed the meal and the bill when it arrived, was as a pleasant surprise as it was exceptionally reasonable for such wonderful food and service. These guys have been in business since 1984 and really know what they are doing and so do pay them a visit if you are in the area. It will be worth it!

“Good food, nice wine, good service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2013

Had a nice experience at this restaurant.
It's really quaint when you drive in. Looks like something you might expect to see in Mexico, you walk over a little bridge across a pond, and there is some outside seating.

Inside is slightly dated but full of charm. The owner greets you when you arrive (even opens the door). This is the start of their service style! It's all very personal and professional!

Started with scallops (v.good)
Followed by steak, cooked to perfection. Lovely seasonal veg, and bearnaise sauce. Food presentation slightly dated- but that doesn't affect the quality of the food which was top class.

Would highly recommend a visit

“Excellent value and fabulous food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013

It has been a while since we visited Chez Antoine and it definitely wont be so long next time. The service was excellent, the food amazing. It is a great restaurant to visit with the kids as there is something for everyone.

“Oh what a place to dine in!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2013

When all about are trying hard to be as good as that think they can be this restaurant is always at its best for food quality fine fare and good wine at a reasonable cost!
The sign on the road now does justice to what must be one of the best restaurants in the Golden Triangle for price and food
NO this is not a chipper priced eating place but is a hidden gem of reasonable price with great food in an ambience that you will not forget
Algarve food served with pleasure at a reasonable cost
Simply GO for IT!
