We had a really good dinner here. We both had the fish chowder to start which was lovely & then we had 2 great steaks that were cooked to perfection and a very generous portion. Dessert was also very generous. We had the pineapple and the cheesecake and both were good. The decor is a little dated but we couldn't fault the service or the food and we felt the price was reasonable. We will definitely eat here again if we go back to The Algarve.

As this restaurant is not by the beach nor on a golf course, it was the recommendations on 'Trip Advisor' that encouraged us to visit.

As the area is quiet at this time of year, we were pleasantly surprised to find the restaurant busy - a good sign and we were not disappointed.

The fish soup starter was hot and tasty with chunky pieces of white fish. For our mains, we selected the 7 euro specials which were both delicious and of a good portion size. The side-dishes (included in the price) of mixed veg and sautéed potatoes with chorizo were a great accompaniment.

With a half bottle of wine and water, the bill came to just over 30 euro for two people which was excellent value for such a tasty, filling and comforting meal.

An added bonus was the friendly staff and, especially, the owner who took time out to welcome us and talk to us about local attractions.

Very dissappointed food was quite tasteless and when we did question the owner the reply was that people travel for miles for Roberts soup not what we were expecting.

Robert and Anne have perfected a menu that gives good quality at a good price. There is always an interesting dish of the day - salmon trout with a spicy sauce or even a humble cottage pie is in a class of its own with Roberts treatment. New parking at the rear is a bonus.

This restaurant was recommended to us and we were not dissap
ointed at all. The owner was very welcoming when we arrived, the ambience was just right, the food totally exquisite. The whole meal was cooked to perfection, all the food was full of flavour and the portions were more than adequate. The owner was very attentive and made sure everything throughout the evening was to our satisfaction. Very reasonably priced, a three cousre meal with a bottle of the house wine was a very attractive 75euros, and worth every penny. Thank you Ann and Robert for a pleasant evening.
