This place is epic ... sorry, just had to get that out of the way!
We went to Praia Da Rocha mid-August and ventured in here midway through the holiday. We were seated and had the menu explained to us ... Basically you choose from maybe 7 or 8 different types of steak/ribs on the menu, that come with chips. This dictates your price which starts at €15.99 up to €18.99 I think. From T-Bone to rib-eye to baby-back ribs, the steaks are great, and big too. There is a "special option" thats not on the menu but its actually one of the lower priced items and well worth a try.
You make your order, which includes your pint/quarter litre of wine or unlimited soft drinks and they give you a plate to bring to the starter buffet which has what you'd expect of a buffet ... the usual salady stuff like grated carrots, chopped veggies & bean in mayo etc, plus pretty damn big prawns as well as chicken curry and rice. The dessert is a simple fruit cocktail, but to be honest after the meal, you really don't care!!!
I tried the "special steak" which as the owner informed us is american meat ... everything else is Portuguese. True or not, I dont care because here's my verdict:
Special Steak .... EPIC
Went back a second night, had rib-eye .... EPIC
On leaving our table the second night, I saw the ribs being brought to the table beside us ... I nearly sat back down and ordered a second meal! I would have gone back three nights in a row but the missus had the final say on that one! :-(
Meat, always cooked to perfection, as ordered. Staff very polite and a bit of fun. Owner is a real character! I only marked it down on atmosphere because it wasn't very busy when we went there. I guess not a lot of people fancy a gut full of red eat on a sun holiday :-)
I cannot recommend this place highly enough! Just go there!
