on our first evening in Algarve we stumbled accross this local, cozy place and are so happy we did! Chef is an impressive man with an obvious passion and talent for local food. We loved spending time in his restaurant and chatting with the lovely waitress Sandra. They made us feel welcomed and at home. The place soothes warmth and feeling that you are in someones home rather than in a restaurant.
Our major agenda was to stay off the tourist trap and any restaurant that featured a ' tourist' menu was off our map right away. That is why we loved this place. The total opposit of commercial crap. Why would you want to go to Portugal and eat a pizza or a burger? We wanted things that locals cook in their kitchen and we got it here.
lots of surprises here - carrots with garlic combo for starters, cod prepared in a local way, shrimp in sweet and spicy sauce, seafood pasta loaded with all types of fruits de mare....yum, yum, yum...and not to mention our favorite - baba de carmel - a dessert which made our hearts melt! We loved everything about this place and in the short time that we stayed in Algarve, we managed to return there for three times!
You must find this place when in Algarve! And say hello to Sandra from us!
Big thanks to you guys for making us feel so special in your restaurant!
