“So Tasty..”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

Have a villa in the nearby Quinta Da Forteleza, and despite having terrible Indian restuarant experiences wherever I've been aroung the world (apart from UK), we decided to take a punt at the Spice Cottage mainly due to hearing about the rave reviews and seeing it pretty busy on most nights... Yes the poppadoms are a tad pricey, but the main dishes certianly make up for the starter as they were fresh and extremely tasty, and the naan breads have that crispy fresh cooked finish. Stick to the local brew (Sagres) and you have a winning combinationb.. Naz makes the whole expericence ever better as you are able to choose the heat of your dish as to your preferred taste (ie, mild medium or hot) Sometimes you want to keep a decent eaterie a secret but as I'm no there all the time, I can only recommend this place for anyone visiting the area..

“Probably the best Indian restaurant in the Western Algarve”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2012

We have tried all the Indian restaurants between Portimao and Burgau and this is by far the best so far.

Nice location, good service, excellent food. All the sauces taste very fresh and the Naan bread is terrific.

We will be going back!

“Awesome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2012

This is a real find off the back road from Burgau to Salema this just has to be the best I have ever tasted, Food is authentic and service is friendly and welcoming. Its just sad that its 1,782 miles away from home to collect a take away or I would be there every weekend...... But then again maybe !!......... it is certainly worth it.
