“Great food, great service, great atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2013

Visit it frequently, the portions are generous, the ingredients are fresh and well prepared into delicious and simple portuguese cuisine dishes. The service is attentive and friendly. Family run. Pool side atmosphere is inviting and tranquil. A no brainer.

“Antonio, Sweden”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2013

Excellent Portuguese food, attentive service, relaxed and friendly people and Environment, and decently priced.
Matilde is a very well kept secret - check the directions in the website before you head there - a mere 5 minute walk from the Marina of Lagos, and is very highly recommended.
It is a family restaurant, with Mrs Matilde cooking the food and coming for a friendly chat after the meal, and Mr Freire and several relatives delivering a service that could be only equaled by what you would feel with family or friends.
The menu is varied and they will prepare a good vegetarian meal if you ask for it, even if it is not in the menu. Try a bit of everything... like the clams, the garlic prawns, yjr giant prawns in the grill with piri piri, the sea food dishes (with rice and pasta) or the cataplanas. With this variatey, you should plan more than one visit :-)
Despite a good choice of good and inexpensive wines, you will be sure to enjoy the white sangria. The desserts are very good and freshly made.
Highly recommended... if you are brave enough, try the Medronho (Algarve Shnaps) at the end of the meal :-)
