Visiting the Algarve 4-5 times per year, this is one of our favourite places in the Almancil / Quinta do Lago area. Excellent quality, great service. A must visit !

Our first visit tonight. Welcoming staff, lovely linen tablecloths & napkins. We both wanted something simple & had chicken & chips with a lovely fresh green salad. Bread & olives were both good, the bread was especially good! We both just wanted something simple and we really enjoyed the food, service and ambience. We had a glass of house white... More

Great buzzy restaurant, good service and great food. Portuguese steak is epic as are any of the fish dishes.

With so many upmarket "international" cuisine restaurants between Almancil and the Golf palaces of the Algarve, this place is pure Portugal. It has a timeless quality about it, and easy charm, a comfortable place to dine. The staff are welcoming and despite only going there once a year, we are remembered and made to feel special. Its like eating with... More

We have been more than once. Food and service ok but not outstanding. Used by some Portuguese, particularly for take away but we prefer some of the smaller restaurants for real Portuguese eating. Open on Sundays when others ar often not.

Two of us visited this restaurant in January 2017. I ordered rack of lamb which was delicious and my colleague ordered Argentinian steak which was tasty and tender. Portions were generous and the meal came to €55 for two with a bottle of wine (Vino Vehlo - very nice red wine). Will definitely return!

My wife's in-laws recommended Churrasqeira as they had frequented a few times before on their previous Portugal trips, they and our local Portuguese friend who also loves the place joined us for dinner. First of all the place isn't much to look st from the outside, however things looked up as we stepped inside, a huge queue of people, this... More

Four of us came to the Churrasqueira de Amancil for a special evening meal, and it was a good choice. The service was very friendly and helpful. We had the usual cover charge bread and olives, plus some bacon and pineapple nibbles. The bread was excellent. We had three starters - a shared garlic prawns, a portion of garlic clams... More

This upmarket Chicken BBQ restaurant really dose impress on all counts. Whilst the chicken is always spot on from the huge open grill, the steaks are the best kept secret here! Cooked on the same grill with great skill from Paulo the chef. Mama runs the main kitchen with expert knowledge and a twist on most dishes. The huge vertical... More
