This is by far my favourite restaurant in Olhos. Visited 3 times in the last week. Had Sea Bass, Lamb chops,prawns, mixed meat platter for mains as well as chocolate mousse, vanilla pudding and Algarvian cake. All excellent. Service as usual second to none.Love this place. Look forward to visiting again in the Spring. Thank you to all at Calheiros!!!!!

The food was excellent, although I thought I was ordering meet on a skewer and it was just different meats on the plate. The staff are extremely friendly and welcoming and the atmosphere was great.

Busy night so they opened another room to accommodate people and service was still very good. All 4 of us had different dishes, fish, squid, seafood skewer etc. All excellent. This was our first night in Portugal and we are planning a return visit for dinner tonight. Based on our experience in the first week here, prices are very reasonable.

Thoroughly enjoyed a late dinner here. The mixed fish kebab was delicious (though chips not the best). Will definitely return to try some more local fish dishes!
