“Great fun and warmth from staff”
Reviewed June 23, 2013

Our concierge at the Vila Vita Parc in the Algarve recommended we eat here as we left his resort and headed for Lisbon. Down near the port, in the square with many other restaurants, we had a lovely dinner with excellent service. And, upon our mentioning the concierge's recommendation, the owner came out to warmly greet us and then had a nice treat of the ginginha Portuguese cherry liqueur sent to our table. A nice touch to finish off a very nice meal.

“Great food and excellent location!”
Reviewed June 6, 2013

In addition to being perfectly located, near the river, Populi has an excellent cuisine and a great service and ambience. Great place to enjoy a meal and have a good time. Been there a couple of times and will surely get back many more times in the future.

“Not recommend”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

The food was very poor for a restaurant that claims to be 'gourmet'.
And the desserts... what a disaster!!
Not worth the money table.

“Just fantastic”
Reviewed May 4, 2013

On a short break wit hfrinds we headed t othe Teirro da Placa as a starting point. Food and drink needed, we stopped in at the Populi. The service, food and drink was very good. So good, it became our 'war office' (place to sit and plan our touristy stuf) for the duration of our stay. never disappointed. The staff were excellent and understanding of some of our lunch sleections! A very big thanks to the young Brazilian lady and her colleague (Fatma I think?) for their superb service, and the owner for makinga destination worthy of repeat visits.
