“Simply Superb.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2014

I had lunch here on 21/04/2014 for the first time. Not hard to find beautiful place, staff very attentive without being intrusive, overseen by a chap called Nuno who knew his stuff. The food was simply superb, not overly priced. Now I can't wait to go back. Heading out the owner took the time to show us the patio where proceedings will take place now the weather is getting better. Don't miss this little gem :)

“Stylish”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2014

This is a beautifully appointed restaurant on the road between Almancil and Val do Lobo; the decor and furnishings are stylishly accomplished. The service is impeccable and the food offerings first class. There is an unusually well priced wine selection and in addition to the A La Carte menu there is an excellent fixed price menu. We've been three times this holiday and will return again.

“Lovely evening as always.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2014 via mobile

Having a villa not far from this restaurant, it was handy that such a good find was near. We took our grown up boys here on their last visit and the menu had something for each, lamb being the most favoured and a very good choice. The evening we went there was a guitarist/singer who added to the atmosphere without intruding on the conversation. No mean feat as we were right in from of him! The staff were friendly, helpful and happy! We will be going again with our friends when they visit.

“Amazing Value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2014

8 of us had Sunday lunch at Menta Pimenta recently and it was really good. €12.50 for 2 courses (€16.50 for 3 courses); there was an amuse bouche, bread sticks and dips as well as sorbet. There is a choice for each course so even the pickiest eater would find something to please. Most of us had lamb shanks - super! Would highly recommend this restaurant and we'll return to try dinner soon.
