“Simply great value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 12, 2012

Nosso cafe looks a bit basic but is a fantastic place for genuine portuguese food at remarkable reasonable prices. The steak a la casa is hard to beat for taste, portion size and sheer good value. Beer and wine also reasonable. Service always good from smiley staff. Love it.

“Brilliant fish dishes!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2012

Having paid 10 euros for grilled sardines and 19 euros for a grilled sea bass at our resort it was refreshing to have the same dishes cooked equally as well - if not better - for only 5 and 9 euros respectively! Excellent friendly service and not as 'cafe like' and casual as i had expected. It's not a smart restaurant but eqally it doesn't have formica topped tables and sawdust on the floor! Dessert was great - would reccomend you try the biscuit cake!

“Lovely whole sea bass only 9 Euro”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 14, 2012

Good quality portuguese food at reasonable price. A welcome relief from other overpriced restaurants around here. Cannot fault the food it is consistently good I have been going for years we holiday in nearby Quinta do lago. This time I had sardines (6 Euro) served with potatoes and fresh veg and partner had the best pork tenderloin he has ever tasted. The home made cakes are delicious including biscuit cake and creme cake and only 2 Euros.
It is always bustling with both English and Portuguese alike. Great atmosphere. Do not be put off by exterior as it is nice inside clean basic decor.Park outside on road. The owner always comes over to make sure everythings ok with your meal. Lovely staff. I hope this place never changes it is so good as it is.My fav restaurant in area.

“Authentic Portuguese Cuisine”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 4, 2012

This restaurant ticks all the boxes if you want good Portuguese Cuisine in a local and popular restaurant at a reasonable price. Dont be deterred by the setting in a busy street in Almancil town - the food and service are second to none, and you can have a hearty meal with wine and traditional dessert for approx 16 Euros per head. I've visited on several occasions, each time I am in the Algarve, and the standards have not dropped. There are always several fish to choose from - the stone bass this time was my choice and was delicious. Would also recommend the desserts - the biscuit cake is lovely!
