“Very good”
Reviewed October 22, 2013

I had the chicken liver pate to start with followed by the special which was a fish dish, delicious. My friend had soup followed by lamb. She did ask for it 'pink' but it arrived a rather grey colour. I think you have to be specific when ordering meat e,g rare, medium, well-done etc etc. The restaurant were great and didn't charge for the dish. In spite of this hiccup, I would definitely go back next time.

“Excellent Restaurant in Almancil”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

We had an excellent meal at the Pig and Whistle last Saturday, not that this was the first time that we'd been there. We have been there on many occasions before when we are out here in the Algarve, this restaurant is consistently good - the food and service first class and very reasonable compared to many of the so-called up-market restaurants in the vicinity. It is a small restaurant and can become a bit crowded at times, otherwise this restaurant is highly recommendable.

“Small but worth a visit”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

The only reason why it doesn't get a 5-star rating is the lack of space inside. The food is great, especially if you are longing for a taste of home. The fish and chips on Friday night are worth a long journey. It's right on the main road from Almancil to Faro, just on the edge of town on the right. Be careful, it's easy to miss. Book early to avoid disappointment, and a disappointment it would be to miss eating here. Very sensible prices. The food quality beats that of many more pricy restaurants.
