I went with my girlfriend to have dinner, and similarly to all other restaurants in the area, they had a cheap touristic menu for 11 euros. Once we told them that's what we wanted, their behavior changed completely. We never saw a smile again. Other than that, the menus are good for their price, although I wouldn't recommend the shrimp... More

Food without taste, choquinhos fritos com alho, not a good experience, it doesn't have any kind of taste. Too much money for the quantity and the quality

If you want a meal of meat, it is a little expensive and not a lot to choose from. The employees work fast but I felt like they were in such a hurry that they didn't pay much attention to the customers.

This lovely Portuguese restaurant was our favorite for their fresh fish, great prawns and lamb chops. The service is good, very attentive staff. We enjoyed every dinner there and will come back in spite of all the other attractions around.

This restaurant is everything you could wish for. Absolutely loved the food. I am a very picky eater but this ticked all the boxes for me. I wish I could have brought the chef home with me.

Of all the restaurants we tried in Monte Gordo this was one of the best with regard to food quality and friendliness but beware it does get busy and on several occasions we couldn't be seated. The reason we liked it so much was because it was family run and they took great pride in what they were offering whereas... More
