We visit this restaurant a couple of times on each of our holidays in Olhos and we have never been disappointed. The food is excellent, the service is friendly without being intrusive, it's great value for money and the setting is really nice. You can eat inside the ornate manor house or outside in the picturesque gardens. It's a real... More

Fantastic Indian Restaurant. Instead of eating off the same old menus get out to this restaurant. Lovely setting, really friendly and above all else the food is fantastic. If you're in this area of Portugal make sure you pay a visit. How it's not rated the best Indian in the area I really don't know

We have been visiting Olhos for over 20 years now and never tried this restaurant, probably because it is just that little walk out of the village. So many years wasted because this is a truly lovely family run authentic Indian restaurant. We had paneer shaslick, prawn malai and tarka dall served with buttered roti and a peshwari nan, all...

My husband and I live in the South of France in an area where there are no Indian restaurants, but we love Indian food, especially the... More

This is the best & most authentic Indian food we have eaten outside of India!! The family who own, cook and run this restaurant are all from India and it shows in the cooking and friendly, laid back & warm welcome and atmosphere created at this superb restaurant. The freshly made samosa and lamb kebab for starters were divine. Equally,... More

We were holidaying at the Riu. This is a hidden gem! We did struggle a little to find it, but once we were inside we couldn't have felt more welcome. It was very quiet and felt very authentic. The food was superb - we could tell the food was freshly prepared. Our kormas were beautifully creamy with desiccated coconut grated... More

This is the second visit to Licorne, on both occasions I have to say the food has been excellent along with the service. A 'but' , although the food was great we did choose to sit outside. Unfortunately we had to suffer un controllable children kicking a ball around while we were eating, this somewhat detracts from the surroundings and... More
