We stumbled upon this restaurant when we drove towards Monchique. We were desperate for something to eat so we stopped at the first restaurant that didn't look like a snackbar. We had an amazing lunch and the owner entertained us with a chat. Be sure...More

Nice place with very friendly and energetic owner who speaks 7 languages. Very different menu from other local restaurants. Tried the beef oriental which was good. Menu a bit limited, staff excellent and willing. Found the prices a bit high. Nice atmosphere. Extensive vegetarian menu.

Rouxinol is the perfect place for a lovley lunch, afternoon coffe with dessert or a romantic dinner. The view from the terrace is breathtaking, the air is fresh, just like the ingridiens of all the homemade dishes, which have influence from around the world. Also featured is a wide selection of vegetarian dishes and homemade desserts. Rouxinol is an old huntingludge. The interior at Rouxinol exuding a warm, familiar and friendly atmosphere. On cold days you can enjoy your meal in front of the Algarve's lagest open fireplace,whilst in summer, certainly the best place is outside enjoying the beautiful environment.
