Having read the reviews on this restaurant, I felt we should visit it to see for ourselves. We telephoned ahead to get some directions as we were not sure where it was. When we arrived we were given a lovely welcome by the owner. I have driven past this restaurant for years and probably would never have stopped if I hadn't read the reviews. The food is amazing and the service is outstanding. I will be returning again very soon as I need to try some other dishes on the menu, The wine recommend by the owner was so good we asked for another bottle to take away with us. This is a hidden gem, and should be on the list of places to visit for everyone visiting or living in the Almancil area.

We Have been using this restaurant for numerous years
The welcome from Lionel and family is always genuine and heartfelt
The food is simple uncomplicated but always excellent
All one can ask is for consistency and you always get that at Malveiro both in service and food

From the moment we arrived at the door until the moment we left, this restaurant and its staff were top class. They took time to explain the items on the menu in great detail. They did me a special meat starter that wasn't on the menu as the others at the table were starting with fish. Nothing seemed too much trouble. The quality of the good was just perfection, topped with fantastic service and great company. If you are in the area you simply must eat at this restaurant. You WILL NOT be dissapointed.

Usually in Algarve you dine at restaurants near the beaches an eat fish. If you want something diferent and want to avoid ultra expensive places you must go to Malveiro.

"Lost" in Vale d'Éguas with nothing arroud worth visiting you wil lfind the super service and atention from all the staff (specially the owner Leonel), excellent curry (shrimps or chicken) great veal and superb steak. They also have a shrimp dish (not curry) that is very good.

The white wine - owner production - is something you will never forget.

Worth the visit ! Every year at least one time !

We are customers of this great restaurant for many years.
The owner, Lionel, makes you feel like at home and the food is a real delight. The shrimp curry is great and for kids and adults the veal is simply super. For dessert we recommend the fig cake. Worth every penny
