“Great little bar- steps from the marina”
Reviewed May 31, 2012

Haven't eaten here but really enjoyed a cold beer here in the afternoon sun!
Friendly staff, really resonable prices and just steps away from the marina of Vilamoura. The setting makes it a cool retreat from the heat and the interior, although small is exceptional clean and traditonal in decor.
We'll be back!

“Actually love this place!”
Reviewed December 21, 2011

Was in Portugal with all my friends this summer and spent most of the nights here! Got to know the staff very well and had some great laughs with them! Such a big part of the holiday that I'll never forget and will sure to come back!

“Love this place!!”
Reviewed August 21, 2011

Havent eaten here, but have been coming to this pub for 4 years now. Great prices, and daily "Happy hour" 7-8pm, and Cocktail hour 9-10pm!! Even Ant McPartlin knows it's here, as he popped in to use the gents when we were sitting outside!! Our daughter was blown away!!! Just next door to the ice cream parlour, and pizzeria. The girls that work there are fab, and very friendly. A girl from Moldova (gorgeous, with a fantastic bob hairstyle!!) and a local girl who loves Guns 'n Roses!!! A big "Hi" to them. Have spent many a good night in this hostelry. Was quite quiet in Aug, but when we've been before, April, May and Oct, it's been busy with golfers. Much cheaper than the hotels.
