Chateaubriand was quite dry and tasteless and fillet steaks requested medium were cooked to rare. Wasn't overly impressed with food. Service was a little inattentive. Expected more. On a plus, the place was spotless with quality table linen and attractive tableware. Maybe it was just...More

We went to this place based on reviews of seafood and the picture that shows fresh fish. Unfortunately we were thoroughly disappointed. None of the food we ordered were fresh. Everything was previously frozen. The prawns were so bad and overcooked. The octopus probably was...More

Visited several times during vacation. Good as it ever was. The vegetables are the best in the algarve. The chateaubriand is superb. The service and welcome is never less than perfect. Look forward to our next visit. Steve & Wilma.

On March 30th, 1995 São Domingos restaurant was born in Galé, Albufeira.Domingos Almeida had the dream of having a restaurant and Maria da Conceição accompanied him on this project of a lifetime.They bought a plot ofland for 2,000€ (a small fortune in April 1980) and with great effort built a house for the family.In their family home, a villa with swimming pool, this adventure began. They started by adapting the garage but quickly becames too small for the lovers of good food in this new restaurant.After the garage, the restaurant has expanded to the living room of the villa and other spaces until only remain the bedrooms.Currently the restaurant São Domingos has four rooms, one private, and one terrace to enjoy, with all conditions, the fine dishes of this cuisine of knowledge and passion.Although no longer a family house, São Domingos became the "home" for many visitors of this Algarve area, which recognize a familiar space in this restaurant where cameback again and again, is always a joy, pleasure and satisfaction of taste.In the last decade, Rafael, the eldest son of the couple São e Domingos, has contributed with their talent and wisdom, so that the restaurant of his parents is one of the best in the Algarve.
