My wife and I are here enjoying the garlic bread with cheese followed by piri piri chicken and a crepe for dessert. The portion sizes were generous and all three courses very tasty. The chicken wasn't over spicy and they provided extra sauce to make the dish hotter as desired. Wine was great value - we will be back.

Very relaxed environment, reasonably priced and children eat for free before 8.30! What more could you ask for.

The food surpasses all the restaurants in the Marina area of Vilamoura and Quateria. The staff are so professional and beautiful people. Wonderful and... More

Excellent service and tasty food. Simple children's menu which came with a smiley face arrangement which was a hit with my 4 year old! Good value for money and nice quiet location just off the main promenade.

We were looking for a place to have dinner near our hotel where we've stayed. It was a little hidden away. It was not on the main street. The service was great and the foods were delicious especially the price was good too! We had 2 glasses of juices, 2 starters & 2 mains cost €25.60. We were so full... More

We discovered this fabulous place a couple of years ago and make a point of going there a few times during our annual holidays. The food is consistently good and we've always had excellent service and the staff remembered us from the previous visits. It's also fantastic value for money. I really can't fault it.

Stumbled across this little place(which was next door to our apartment)by chance and glad we did! We had many a cooked breakfast here, which was superb. Friendly staff always on hand to please. The breakfast's were full English and well worth the excellent price(with tea or coffee included). Look out for this place, it is well worth a visit.

We were recommended to try here by a tour guide on a trip into the mountains and were not disappointed. After a long day in sweltering heat we showered quickly and returned to spent a lovely evening on the outside seats of this small restaurant, run by Maria. Not the best of views as it is up some steps off... More
