We went to Ferragudo by sea Taxi for the evening from Portimao and loved the wonderful atmosphere as soon as we got off the boat around the Harbor, We wandered through cobbled streets and came across this wonderful Restaurant. The staff were really lovely and accommodating as we were a group of 9 they had to put tables together which... More

Enjoyed a fabulous lunch here and was very happy with service, price and quality. The square you sit in is so pretty. A very picturesque village anyway and this little gem fits right in

Beautiful little seaside town with quaint cobblestone streets, a lovely harbour, and numerous restaurants. But Portarade in the famous square is the place to go. Previous posts are correct. The service is very slow. But no one is in any rush in this town. Top end of the bargain price range but the food is great and the portions big.... More

Hi Steve, Thanks for your review. At this time of year we do issue a food warning, that is, if demand comes all at once then meals can take longer to serve....for main meals this can be as much as 1 hour plus. We accept that for some this is unacceptable so those who choose to go elsewhere do so.....those... More

Set in the town square in this quaint unspoilt place, this restaurant offers excellent value for money with it's all inclusive menu options. Ate here twice during our week's stay in the area & had the 11.50 euro menu, this includes bread, olives & sardine paste,followed by a choice of starter, main, dessert & coffee. The portions are large &... More

Hi Helen, Delighted you were able to join us during your stay in Portugal. Our lunchtime set menu has been around for a few years now and seems to be very popular. We like to think we offer a value for money menu in a "great" location. We look forward to seeing you again at sometime in the future and... More

We visited the restaurant as a family and whilst it was clearly busy a table was soon available. The owner told us that there would be a wait for main course as it was exceptionally busy this was fine and in fact the food arrived well ahead of the suggested time. The food was very good and offered great value.... More

Hi Maynardmaynard, Yes, August does get very busy so we ask our customers to be patient.......we don't have the same issues in November as you will fully understand. We are sometimes able to deliver food more quickly than planned...it depends on the mix of meals as we have 3/4 stations in the kitchen. Pleased you enjoyed the experience and trust... More

Waited over an hour for our starters still waiting for mains. Won't be coming back again. If you must go make sure you have nothing better to do that night.

Gavin Not making any excuses so your opinion is noted. We rely on repeat custom. In the main our clients leave having enjoyed the experience but on this occasion we failed to please.....it happens unfortunately so I offer an unreserved apology to you and your family. Trust you found quicker service at one of the other quality restaurants in Ferragudo.... More

Order the prawn starter, it´s amazing, hot, juicy and savoury. Or ask for the prawn BBQ on your table, nominate a chef and cook gigantic prawns as you require. The mixed meat/fish starter is superb too, with local bread, quite enough for 2 people...or more.

Family ran restaurant. The food is cooked by an aged women in a tiny kitchen, she runs the kitchen with an iron rod of knowledge. The staff are friendly, are happy to be working & don't question the kitchen......the food is remarkably good, fresh & welcome after waiting so bloody long x
