We drove down this valley on the way up the mountain to Monchique and found this beautiful place with a hotel, spa and restaurant. The food was authentically Portuguese and very good value. The service was good too.

Lovely setting in the square but in the shade, just right on a hot sunny day. Only a few customers when we sat down but became busier. Only one waitress so took some time to take our order but even longer for our order to...arrive. Single waitress was really rushed off her feet but acted calmly. Food was good, roasted quail and pork neck, cold beer and good coffee, a tasty lunch. As tourists we were not in a hurry but the poor waitress needed help. My companions, who have been coming here for a number of years commented that things were not as good as it used to be.More

Hello, are we really still in the Algarve here? Sat at a table for 20 minutes (one other client in the place, having a beer, so they were not exactly rushed off their feet), someone came over to ask if we wanted lunch, we said...we would just like to have a drink (we had chosen specially a table which was not set) the guy went away, we assumed to bring us a drinks menu. Waited another 20 minutes, went to ask if we could order, were rudely told that they did not serve drinks. Can't believe we are in the Algarve, in all the years we have been coming here we have never encountered such rudeness. Shame.More

We have been coming here for 15 years and one is usually guaranteed a decent meal - not the best, but reliable. With the recent major fires one might have thought that they would make an effort for those who still come and visit this...part of the Algarve. We had to search for a waiter and then, having been seated, we were left. We then had to seek out a menu. We placed our order and waited 35 minutes for our meal. The restaurant was not busy. My sardines eventually arrived, but my wife was given pork cutlets and chips instead of squid and salad. she had to wait another 10 minutes. One of my three potatoes was inedible and so was the replacement. I asked to speak to the manager, who was not there.They did deduct the cost of my wife's dish, but we won't be returning. Such a shame. A great location, but the staff and the food are really not good.More

And overpriced, but they have you in their grip if your staying at the termas and don’t want to drive. Dinner is a buffet at a fixed price, but unless you get there as they open, much of the food is over cooked an hour...later as they don’t change things out. Probably one of the worst buffet experiences ever. Particularly for the price. Rooms nice but that’s about it.More

The 1692 restaurant is part of the thermal baths complex. We dined there the first night of our stay, which happened to be their opening night for the season. The staff was welcoming and attentive. Though the restaurant was pretty full, we didn’t have to...wait for ordering or in between courses. The food is of good quality and the recommended local wine was excellent.More

Overpriced restaurant with unfriendly staff and tasteless food. Worst restaurant during our stay in Algarve.

We sat in this lovely square for a lunch in September. It was a pleasure. We mainly just had one course but all enjoyed them. Food is barbequed within sight and the sardines were particularly delicious. All salads ordered and the gazpacho were enjoyed. Great...spot.More

Lunch alfresco in this well shaded restaurant. Lots of large umbrellas. Friendly staff and food barbecued to order. We had black pork spare ribs and chicken Piri piri. Both good. An excellent glass of vinho Verdi added to the pleasure.
