The ambiance is typical Portuguese but our waitress was a little unfriendly. Our food was well presented and the portions were generous but the price was a little high for the quality we were getting. The seafood was fresh and prepared with some pride - and served by the chef right off the heat. All in all it was a... More

Excellent Espatada's and Swordfish - glad we re-visited. Always choose from the normal menu not the tourist menu

I spend a lot of time eating out in central Algarve this restaurant is very ordinary and over-priced considering it's location. I imagine it is busy in the summer with tourists but my visit was a weekday lunch time in November, not another soul to be seen. Veg soup starter was fine followed by soggy (defrosted?) fish and vegetables which... More

Booked and ate at this restaurant while on vacation in Portugal. Had a absolutely delicious meal, seafood cataplana. The meal was served freshly cooked and arrived at the table in the pan. The service was excellent. Also had free after dinner traditional Portuguese drinks Also saw other meals being served which all looked amazing. Definitely not to be missed.

Had a nice meal here on our last night in the area. Service was good, the owner was very attentive. Nice wine selection and fresh seafood. The monkfish kabob and my husband's prawn curry were both excellent. A little complimentary aguardente at the end was a nice touch. Inside and outside patio dining is available.

We were driving along the coast of algarve and decided to look up for a restaurant to have lunch. The atmosphere of the place it self was very poor. The food was tasteless. We've been to various restaurant in Algarve and o Grelhador was probably the one we were more disappointed. Also the restaurant is not run by native Portuguese,... More

A short slightly uphill walk from the main beach area so maybe take a cab - well worth it - great food cooked to order (big portions), lovely staff, inside and outside eating area, can order wine by the glass, half bottle or full bottle. Worth visiting.
