Every September we visit Lucio's and go there for lunch virtually every day of the three weeks we are there. The restaurant is family owned and run and it is lovely to see the family which include Grandparents their children and grandchildren every lunchtime eating together. The food is genuine traditional Portuguese cooking and I recommend you try the tuna... More

Have visited this restaurant many times over five years but I must say this time the food was not up to standard. We were both disappointed with our meals. It seems that if you were Dutch you got better attention which we have never experienced before and was very off putting which wouldn't have bothered us if the food had... More

This was my wife and I's penultimate night's dining experience in Monte Gordo, and one of the best! The tourist menu, at €13 is more expensive than most, but included a bottle of very good house red between us (there are alternative drinks). On our visit we were treated in a very courteous and friendly manner - nothing is too... More

The tourist menu is great and very good value. Had mixed grilled fish which did not disappoint. The staff is very friendly and multilingual. Will definitely return on our next visit.

We always ask "PAPA" our nick name for the Chef owner, what he has in that is special and we go by his recommendatrion. He personally buys his own fish and meat,... More

The description didn't do the finished meal justice. I had a large tuna steak and the "onion sauce" was onions, tomatoes, peppers, herbs and was very very good. This meal was better than I anticipated. I think the translation of the dishes on offer is interesting and definitely lacks a true translation. But hey, we were on holiday and we... More
