I must say in first place that both me and my girl are meat lovers. We love a well prepared steak with chips, a nice barbecued chicken and everything you get here around. It's the tipical thing... You go into a restaurant and you enjoy your steak or your grilled chicken just as you'd expect it.
This restaurant however tells a different story. It goes beyond your expectations in far so many ways!
To start with you get the owner to pick you up from the street and welcome you into the place. He's a big fellow but that's not what impressed me the most. He's a very friendly person as well - we've actually seen some people declining his welcoming smile and he keeps it all the way so you really really feel invited, even if in some other day.
The owner and his wife are the waiters and they manage well. The restaurant must have about 50-60 seat capacity so you don't ever get to wait for too long to get served.
Then there's the food... What a wonder!
I visited some places around in Carvoeiro as it is a small town cramped up with food parlours and restaurants and believe me when I say this one does make a difference.
Here you don't get that empty plate with a steak and an egg with some rice and chips. Here you'll get the whole lot. You'll get the classy looks, the classy sauces and the cream of the crop meat - even the pork steak feels so much like a beef that one has to marvelled! The decorations on the food are also great, giving it that look that goes very well with the quality. It's a treat!
The other plus is the ambience of the place. It's nice if you go with family, on a romantic dinner or even with friends or alone. Because the people are so friendly you never feel that you don't fit in. Great!
The price is the same as everywhere else around. I would say that it is underpriced for the treatment you get from the moment you walk in until that very last goodbye. That you won't get anywhere around - believe me because I know the Algarve very well - I live here!
Notice that I'm not saying it's cheap. It's average for an above average experience. If you want cheap there are plenty of burger shops around to choose from.
I believe the owner's name is Zander and don't forget to ask him for that special surprise shot at the end of your meal - it's a regional treasure for adults only.
