The best restaurant experience on our week long visit to the area. The staff restaurant and food were all top notch. A lot of regulars on the night we visited both local and foreign who were all greeted by the owner and staff which is always a good sign. Fish soup to start and monkfish kebab for mains were both...

We ate here a few times staying in an apartment nearby. Very nice family vibe, laid back waiting staff and some lovely Portuguese seafood dishes. Inexpensive, traditional and very comfortable with some seats outside also, which are nicely shielded by shrubbery from the busy road beside. Also they have a nice cafe next door which is great for interesting sweet... More

Ate here twice with my fiancée during a recent holiday in the Algarve. Food was excellent and the menu had many delicious sounding dishes we had to go back a second time. Staff were all very accommodating and efficient, did an excellent job of looking after their guests. Highly recommend!

Traditional food offering excellent fish and meat. My wife had the monk fish and said it was her favourite meal of the trip. I had the lamb and it was definitely my favourite meal. Very reasonably priced and a relaxed atmosphere. It's should be top of your list of restaurants if you're in the area.

Our family group stayed in a villa just five minutes walk away. Very helpful staff and very nice food. Our waiter Bruno was excellent. We visited this restaurant twice and did find the seafood better than meat dishes. They are very family friendly, with both of our granddaughters being well catered for. Our eldest particularly enjoyed the Prawn and Octopus... More

Description
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.
