“Simple, friendly mountain-food. Enjoy!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

This traditional restaurant on the road from Monchique to Foia, proved to be a hit on our holiday as we visited three times - twice at lunchtime and once in the evening.

Friendly and relaxed, A Rampa offers great service and some excellent menu choices including chicken piri-piri, special cod and veal dishes with Serra ham, and variety of other meat and fish choices. The selection of homemade desserts on offer here was the best we came across, particularly the fig, almond and carob tart.

Recommended.

“Best chicken Piri-piri in the Algrave”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2013

A Rampa does not look like much. And it surely is not. The cutlery and such might not be quite clean, but you get a new and clean item fast and with a smile. The menu is simple local portuguese food - bread and local cheese - a mixed salad - freshly pealed and sliced french fries - chargrilled chicken piri-piri! THE BEST EVER! Fast service! very rustic decor, but it gets away feeling very charming and authentic!!!!

“Can't fault this place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2013

We ate here last year and enjoyed it very much, so we had two meals here this year and weren't disappointed. It was very busy on both occasions with locals and tourists enjoying the atmosphere. Portions here are excellent and the piri piri really is the best. Wine and food are very reasonably priced and the view from the terrace is fantastic, you can see all the way to the coast. The service is second to none and I'd recommend this little gem to all my family and friends. If we go back to the Algarve again next year we'll certainly go again.

This Cheap and Cheerful restaurant is tiny but has a big following of locals and tourists who rave about their chicken piri piri, seriously better than any other in the Algarve by far
