We hadn't been to Florian's for a few months as we haven't been in Portugal since the spring. However the food, wine and service was as good as ever. We had the seafood ravioli from the specials and then the pork and the lamb, followed by apple tartlet. We sat in the wonderful garden. All in all a great evening.

Everything perfect at this small family owned restaurant. Not only is the food perfect but the owner when he heard my next stop was Porto insisted on giving me a long list of his favorite places to go. He even called me the next day to follow up. Great food, great atmosphere, perfect in every way

Back again at the end of this August - never ceases to amaze me how the top quality menu is consistently excellent. If you don't go there you will be missing one of the best, if not the best in the Algarve!

Exceptional food, superb service and elegant ambience - Karin and Piet have built a superlative restaurant in Almancil (Algarve) which brings together flavours and ingredients from across Portugal, and the Iberian peninsula and even Holland... my personal favourites included the crab and foie gras salad, risotto with grilled tiger prawns and the charcoal grilled Iberico pork

We ate here as a family of 4 last summer. Whilst our 2 teenagers did enjoy it, the food was maybe a tad out of their comfort zone, so we thought we would go on our own when we were back in Almancil again. Good decision! Wonderful lobster ravioli to start , followed by Cote du Boeuf - both were... More

Wonderful food, great service, perfect setting. This restaurant is lovely and would be suitable for grown ups only as well as the family meal we had. Many thanks for making our first night in Portugal a happy one!

What an amazing restaurant! I don't know where the previous reviewer went to but it can't have been this place. The food was simply outstanding, the service attentive and friendly and a great wine recommendation from the Sommelier. The setting is so romantic, out on the terrace with the beautiful botanical plants. Yes there were mosquitos but we prepared ourselves... More
