Little gem near our apartment . Breath of fresh air compared to the flashier counterparts . Very reasonable and delicious food . Kebabs , Chicken and my favourite Sardines were superb as was the Swordfish . Relaxed atmosphere . Worth a trip if you're in the marina area and want a change .

Fabulous service from this family run restaurant. Food was impeccable and alcohol was decently priced with a very good house white. Highly recommend chicken kebab. Extra portions of chips & rice without charge. Little tipple of port, brandy or irish cream (baileys) provided on the house at end of meal. Can not recommend enough. Definitely worth a visit for some of the best hospitality in Portugal. You won't leave hungry. Will definitely visit again when I'm next in Vilamoura.

Highly recommended. Don’t be put off by the surroundings. The restaurant is situated alongside what appears to be a half empty semi-disused hotel. It made no difference at all. The staff couldn’t have been nicer and the restaurant itself is clean and well presented. The chicken kebab served on a skewer with peppers and onion was delicious and the chicken pieces were extremely generous. The restaurant is perfect for families and children are well looked after by the waiting staff. The prices were very reasonable especially considering the generous portions. The kids menu was particularly good value for money.

The fish here was good (grilled sword fish) but the sides were nothing special, the vegetables were just boiled and chips weren’t great.
Staff was friendly :)
