Worst meal, service and price in the whole of Algarve so far. 40' of waiting for cold, hard, tasteless food! We didn't get bread, butter, olives but got charged for it and when I asked for some lemon the waiter said they didn't have it...More

Stopped for lunch at Imperial choosing grillled fish as a single course. Moved inside because of smokers using open air tables. Orders taken quickly then we waited and waited. Asked waiter who said it was coming. Spoke to owner, a harassed lady, who seemed annoyed...More

All of the courses we ordered were of a high standard. I had a wonderful octopus and prawn skewer which I would recommend. It was probably a little more expensive than we might have expected but worth it.
