“A totally different eating experience”
Reviewed April 15, 2013

This restaurant was recommended to us by our hotel during a weekend break in the algarve. It is off the beaten track and certainly couldnt survive by passing trade alone. The rustic charm of the premises could not be beaten and the menu containedhings I have never heard of and would be unlikely to eat again. We started with a complimentary basket of bread and pate which was followed by a complimetary appetiser. My main was black pig sausage and it was extremely tasty, although the restaurant appeared to specialise in a local maize porridge (similar to palenta)which came with everything and was, in my view, rather tasteless. The food was certainly presented to a high standard and the wine was of the requisite quality.

“Rustic traditional portugese and fusion cuisine. Xerem”
Reviewed March 7, 2013

Excellent cuisine from a chef who used to be chef in the quinta do lagoa posh upmarket area of the Algarve
This rustic restaurant is on the n395 road north from albufeira towards paderne . Ample parking. The restaurant is painted terracota. So you cant miss it. It is called xerem and they have a dish called xerem which is a polenta which is ground corrn and used to be popular centuries ago. In portugal. The couverte of homemade pate made of tomato and cheese and lovely small olives gets your taste buds started. I followed by finger fried squid then xerem and clams.........then i indulged in the chocolate variety dessert simply divine.... Plus 2 glasses of wine for 29 euro. I highly recommend this restaurant, but only open in the evenings. Very pleasant staff.

“top notch”
Reviewed October 9, 2012

spent two weeks in the region and tried a load of restaurants both local and futher afield (a number recommended by residents). This was by far the best for food, service and ambiance (including the pimento at carvoeiro). The prices are reasonable (spent far more for considerably worse elsewhere!).

“Out on the countryside”
Reviewed May 21, 2012

It takes about 20 minutes by taxi to get here from Albufeira, but it is absolutely worthwhile. The food is fantastic and the service is great. But most of all the prices are unbelievable. Three courses for around 20 euros. The wine list has both Portuguese and international wines.
