“No more than a Cafe !”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2014

Visited this restaurant following some reviews.
Found the food very poor and the service was lacking a welcoming touch.

We are always pleased to try new eating houses but this one fell way below standard to similar cafés in the town of Almancil.

“not to be missed”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2014

The Restaurant Peri Peri is located right by the level crossing on the Loulé road coming out of Almancil. There is plenty of private parking to the rear and it is open for lunch and dinner every day. The concise, but carefully constructed menu will appeal to all tastes, including something for vegetarians. For the extra-ravenous, there is a special starter of prawns, either boiled, or fried with garlic (500g for €9.90), but the less hungry might try a smaller, 300g, serving for €5.00. The daily (weekday), special dishes are priced at €7.50, or €4.50 for a half portion, which includes couvert, a drink and a dessert, or coffee. Main course choices can be half a grilled chicken with fried or boiled potatoes, a 100% beef,, home made bacon cheeseburger, with fries, or ricotta tortellini in a creamy tomato sauce. Alternatively, €9.90 will entitle you to a succulent pepper steak,or grilled sea bass and boiled potatoes or even traditional fish and chips, with mushy peas! Desserts vary daily. We went for lunch. My wife enjoyed a generous portion of tortellini pasta in a very tasty tomato sauce. My melt-in-the-mouth, rare pepper steak arrived exactly as ordered and we had servings of black beans, rice and salad, to share. For dessert, being rather replete, we shared apple tart with ice cream. It is difficult to imagine anyone not being well pleased with the offerings from this very presentable restaurant and I wish them the very best of luck.
