We had lunch here with the family. The food was unfortunately just mediocre and maybe not even… the food was fat, I asked for my meat to be rare and it was well done, the sausages of the kids were simply not good. Prices are...fair and the service was fine, but you come to a restaurant to have good food…More

This was one of the best restaurants we ate at while we were in Loule. I had the grilled salmon and my husband had the fried squids. He was surprised that they were whole fried little squids, not like calamari. But they were really delicious...and the salmon was the BEST I’ve ever had (and I live 10 minutes from a fishing village that always catches loads of salmon!) Tonight is our last night in loule and we are going back one more time! Also worth mentioning that this appears to be a local favorite. We were the only tourists there. And the prices can’t be beat... for two drinks and two large entrees, we paid only €22!More

As the name suggests it specialises in grilled fish. The dishes are simple but perfectly prepared and priced competitively although they are centrally located. The decor is simple and the place is usually busy with locals (which is also a good sign).

Stumbled across this on the last night of our hols. It is a really good restaurant with great food. Staff are very friendly and helpful and I was surprised by how low the bill was when it came. Could not recommend enough.

This restaurant is located right next to the Municipal Market in Loulé and is obviously a local favorite, just about every table was full and seafood of every type was flying out of the kitchen in quantity. Portion sizes were huge and service was adequate...(but they were very busy). Only really negative point was that my sea bass which was grilled whole, in the normal Algarve fashion, had not been properly cleaned prior to cooking. There were still some guts inside the fish. With so many restaurants available in this area, I will probably give this one a miss in future despite the very reasonable pricing for the meal.More

We visited with friends and ordered the king prawns. They were delicious, freshly cooked in garlic butter, served with rice, chips and freshly prepared salad. One if the best seafood restaurants I have been to and will definitely be visiting again soon.

Went for a quick meal with friends. I had the squid with beans which was just amazing. The service was very friendly and quick. Everything we ordered was very good and plentiful
