The restaurant is in a very clean section of Mertola. We ate outside and watched the street scene. We tried a dish of very small fish - I don't recall their name. It was time consuming to eat them with their very small but unedible bones. The food was just OK.

We love several restaurants in Mertola but Allengarve is our favourite. We usually visit at least once for lunch and once for dinner on our visits to Mertola. Go early or better still reserve a table.

Had a great lunch here, sun was shining through the windows onto the terrace, white wine was chilled and enjoyed. Food was great, we had poached whiting with veg and bread and cheese, it was cooked really well. Prices were good. Choc mousse was excellent. Service was excellent. Perfect spot for a lazy, boozy lunch.

Very popular restaurant which provided a very good value for money Sunday lunch. The food was excellent and the service was very good even though the restaurant was very busy.

We went here for dinner on our first night in Mertola, and also for lunch on the second day. Although the dishes of the day were similar both days, you could also go for the menu options, with an estimated waiting time of 45 minutes. We didn´t bother waiting, and went for some of the day dishes. The speciality seems... More

Busy restaurant...arrived at 12:45 and got the last table. The food was ok but nothing was more than average. Service, food, decor all ok/average. A bland experience...but was quite cheap!

I had lamprey and my husband rabbit stew. Both were tasty and the atmosphere a bit dead but cozy lodge like. The waiters were nice.
