The small entrance off the main road conceals a magical area at the back. Fabulous food prepared by chef/owner Robert, probably one of the best chefs in the Algarve. Exceptional value & great hospitality.

We've eaten at the Lemon Tree at least 10 times and have never been disappointed by the food. We would happily go there just for the cover charge mushrooms & bread, plus the fried potatoes & chourico served with the main courses! Portions are hearty, although it is now possible to order smaller helpings on some dishes. The fish is always beautifully cooked. Service is warm, friendly and efficient. We prefer to eat in the lovely courtyard at the rear of the restaurant, if the weather is warm enough. Prices for dinner are quite a bit higher than at lunch time, our last meal (2 people, cover charge, 3 courses, half bottle wine and coffee) was about 70 euros.

The Lemon Tree is a friendly restaurant on the main street of Almancil in the Algarve with staff who care about service and genuinely want patrons to enjoy their dining experience. The menu is varied and if you are after bog standard Portugese tourist fare then this is probably not the place for you, what they have got is a nice balance of classic Portugese dishes made special by giving them an international twist. A decent wine selection and very reasonable prices make this a most enjoyable dining experience our bill came to 106 Euros for 3 adults having 2 courses each with wine. I would especially recommend the black pudding as a starter!
