“Great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2014 via mobile

We visited this restaurant with our two young children for dinner. It was a wonderful experience. The service was fantastic. It's clearly a family business and there is a very warm and homely feel to the place. Our food was beautifully presented and tasted wonderful. All in all a great restaurant serving great food at very reasonable prices. We look forward to returning.

“Incredible food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2014

We revisited this Restaurante and was pleasantly surprised that the second visit was even better than the first!
The food is delicious and is fantastic value for money. We sat outside and enjoyed the warm Algarvian evening with a lovely meal, atmosphere and service.

Well done Bunkers!

“Wonderful food, very attentive service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2014

We were staying in a villa beside the restaurant and decided to give it a try. We had eaten in the previous restaurant Don Toro and did not have a good experience. Anyway, the food was absolutely fabulous. There was something there for everyone. Service was very attentive from the lovely owners simon and Caroline. We returned 3 times during our stay and would highly recommend this restaurant

“Superb family run restaurant with fantastic food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2014

We visited this restaurant three times in one week when we were in Almancil. At the time they had only been open for five weeks. It's just on the edge of Almancil on the road to Quarteira - keep going for about 3/4 mile after Sr Frango's and it's on the right. It has an open, but sheltered dining area and plenty of inside seating too.
The cover, instead of the usual sardine pate and cheese consisted of chicken liver pate, lovely bread and imaginative garnish, the chicken liver pate is absolutely amazing, so much so that we ordered it as a starter as well!
A small, but highly creative menu, with dishes to suit everyone, my favourite was pork tenderloin stuffed with ham and cheese, makes my mouth water just thinking about it. All mains are served with a selection of plentiful, perfectly cooked vegetables.
Bunkers is run by a very friendly, hospitable British family from Yorkshire, Caroline and son Nathan have been in Algarve for six years as Nathan is on the road to being a professional golfer - hence the subtle golfing theme. Simon, Caroline's husband has recently joined them and he is an absolutely brilliant chef. Several times he came to our table with dishes he was experimenting with and seeking our opinion, so expect a longer menu before too long!
The family have put a tremendous amount of effort into opening this restaurant, it has everything needed for an extremely pleasant evening's dining at a reasonable price, they deserve to do very well.
