Just a wonderful characteristic restaurant.We ventured into Vale de Telha by curiosity wanting to see if there was anything down the road leading off prior to Aljezur. We found this little hotel which looked closed. I tried the door called out ola and a lovely lady called Ana Christina greeted me. I asked if they were open for lunch and she said that only opened for supper. She was going to check with the chef if he was willing to make us lunch. Tiago the chef would be delighted to make us a meal.
He made us the best meal we've eaten in the Algarve. The chicken was made to his suggestion and really good. Well everything was just delicious. The service outstanding. The chef came out once the meal was over to make sure we were happy with his cooking The hotel grows all their own vegetables, fruit, nuts & other items.
We are planning our return back before we leave the Algarve.

We had a set menu for lunch, very typical Portuguese food with a Moorish decor. They were not open until supper but said they would open early for us. The chef came out and talked to us at length and after lunch our server gave us a tour of their garden where they grow their own vegetables. A very fun afternoon.

Stopped for a family lunch on the way back from the beach in Monte Clerigo. Really friendly staff despite our ignorance of Portuguese. Lovely seafood on the veranda along with table football for the children to keep them amused whilst the food arrives. No cheaper than a meal in the UK would be, but so much nicer than the grumpy and surly service at O Ze's at the beach had been.
