“Inexpensive place to eat”
Reviewed September 21, 2013

Passed this restaurant a few times but there were not many customers so was a bit put off. When passing again there were a few people in so we thought we would give it a try. The owner is a cheerful man and the waitress is a friendly lady who used to work at D'Enzo pizza place. The melon with ham was lovely, the prawn cocktail rather short of prawns but the carbonara pasta was delicious with plenty of ham and a tasty and not too gluppy creamy sauce. Prices are good. Meant to return later in holiday but so many nice restaurants around that we never did go back.

“Good Food, Limited Menu”
Reviewed August 27, 2013

we ate here on our first night as it was round the corner from our villa. The service was very friendly and the the food very nice. Only problems was there wan't much choice for children on the main menu. My kids like to choose from an adult mnu to get a decent size meal but the choice was limited. It was also quiet but not sure if this is a good thing or bad.

“Average but not great”
Reviewed August 24, 2013

Don't know why this was rated so high - food was good but not great. Service slow. OK but many better in old town (try Ricardo's or The Bistro)

“Disappointed”
Reviewed August 18, 2013

I was looking forward to revisiting this restaurant after a gap of a few years visting the Algarve. Upon arrival it looked exactly the same but I soon realised that the owners had changed when I scanned the menu for my "to die for" Blue Sky Steak. The service was very slow and my steak was very stringy and tough the sauce was very salty. My friend ordered the sea bass which was full of bones and overcooked. Prices were reasonable but the quality of the food was not as expected. This was the worst meal we had and I didn't particularly feel comfortable about the manner in which we were questionned about our meals. We paid up and quickly left.
