The view from the terrace is breathtaking, the air is fresh, just like the ingridiens of all the homemade dishes, which have influence from around the world. Also featured is a wide selection of vegetarian dishes and homemade desserts. Rouxinol is an old huntingludge. The interior at Rouxinol exuding a warm, familiar and friendly atmosphere. On cold days you can enjoy your meal in front of the Algarve's lagest open fireplace,whilst in summer, certainly the best place is outside enjoying the beautiful environment.

Eight of us went here for a late lunch. I was a beautiful sunny day and we chose to sit outside. There is a lovely garden patio where we sat and to ensure the summer sun wasn't too hot Stefan the owner brought over an extra umbrella and hats for anyone that needed them !
The food was good local fare, we all shared a mix of tapas style appetizers and then mainly the chicken piri piri or lamb as main courses. The food was excellent, our host engaging and we generally had a great time. We were not rushed in any way and 2 1/2 hours later we strolled out.
Overall a great place to enjoy good food in an uncrushed, lovely environment.

owner was lovely, yes uses the [--] word, but a lovely swedish fella with a great sense of homour. the place has a great atmosphere and the food and service were fantastic. my better half had the burger which looked lovely and was very reasonably priced. i had the fish stew which at 23 euros was one of the priceyest things on the menu. but boy was it worth it... best fish stew i have EVER had... both myself and my partner stumbled across this restuarant by accident but both agree that we would go back to portugal just to eat in this restuarant again. definitely worth a visit, and if you like fish, make sure you try the fish stew!!!!
also the views when you sit outside are lovely.

We choose this restaurant because of a complaisant review in a journal and we really were excited: it was a very nice and romantic place, the Rouxinol has a nice garden with very cozy places to sit and the restaurant itself is homely and furnished with style. We were welcomed by Stefan like long known friends and from the beginning it was a place to relax, have a great dinner and enjoy the evening in a nice surrounding. We ordered lamb and oriental beef, both was very delicious. The famous desert, the raspberry tarte was a delight. In total: a insiders tipp, a place for an unforgettable day, we will not forget!

Can only echo every word Fiona wrote below and wish I'd read her review below before visiting. It was near our hotel. We were the only customers the whole evening. The most expensive meal of our trip and it wasn't worth it. The owners use of the f word not really appropriate though he was trying to be funny I guess.
