We ate as a family twice during our week stay as the food, service and value was exceptional. All the staff were passionate about the dishes they were serving. It was a pleasure to eat in Leonel's 'home' and we hope to return very soon.

Soup starter was very good, then I shared a pork cataplana, the meat, a cheap cut, was very tough and chewy, huge portion, but I would prefer quality to quantity, the chocolate mousse didn't set, it was runny, one of our party had octopus and said it was good, the owner does a great job keeping his clients entertained, I...

We were recommended to visit Leonels and went there today for lunch and were not disappointed. Main meal (sea bass plus dessert plus coffee plus a small )was 8 euros each. Very friendly welcome - big smiles. Mostly Portuguese clientele - very busy. Just go there - it's brilliant, full of atmosphere.

Visit Leonel's at least half a dozen times a year. The food on this occasion was very nice and the restaurant was full, do book if you intend to get there after 8.00pm, or risk a long wait. The food is always good, but there is no longer Fillet steak on the stone or Lamb Ragout, which were both my... More

Expect to be eating your meal with locals - because this is also their favourite restaurant in Algoz. The menu is simple, locally sourced fish and meat dishes, usually including dishes of the day like sardines, steak, mixed grill, sea bass and the like. Typically with a dessert, the meal will cost €7 each! The A La Carte is slightly... More
