Description: Restaurante Apolo-Loule Found it by chance because was raining outside and needed to find a place as soon as possible (baby in the push chair). Close to the centre in a narrow street, very traditional. Staff very pleasant, food amazing, very very good value, best experience in the whole week spent in the Algarve. Don’t miss the glass of red wine for 1 euro. The coffee was 0.60 euros, I had a nice fish for 7 euros and my husband the sardines for 5.5 euros. Everything was very well cooked, nice veg, sauce excellent…again was our best experience ever.

The main courses were slightly above average with both the Turkey dishes and Portuguese steak being well cooked. One of the sweets was flambe pineapple. Different and worth a try which all in all made a rating of very good.

I'd read the reviews before going on holiday and completely forgot about this place until towards the end of our stay...what a shame! We dined there Thursday 10.10.13 and had our best meal of the week. Gorgeous tapas and the pork in madeira wine sauce was delicious! So much so, we decided to eat there friday night as well! Once again, gorgeously tasty tapas, cured cheese with walnuts and honey and piri piri prawns, followed by turkey and prawns for the main course. Well cooked meat, with rice and vegetables. Simple but good.

We stumbled upon Apolo last year when we were in Loule and the food was out of this world. We went back this year and the food is even better and the prices are still incredibly good. We ate at Apolo 4 times during our holiday and each time the food and the service was brilliant. Not to be missed!

Found this restaurant via tripadvisor and what a find!
We went for dinner last night with our 8 yr old daughter, the husband and wife owners (very nice people) have not run this place for long but they are very helpful and chatty which is something we like. Food wise the food is good, I had roasted octopus which was really tasty but some parts were over cooked and a bit tough. I had carob tart for dessert which was really lovely. My wife had sardines and my daughter battered hake and chips. All very tasty. Could possibly do with a children's menu but I would recommend and will definitely be back ( also €55 for three of us and wine, desserts and an after dinner drink so good value!)
