“Fantastic Portuguese food and atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 20, 2012 via mobile

A wonderful friendly restaurant with a good atmosphere. Good for couples and groups. I have been there for the last three years and the quality remains high. Superb food. The selection of hors d'oevres are great. Good menu choice. Some stars such as Mozambique prawns, the stone basis gratin or kid in clay pot. Try the owners wine selection for good wine. Staff very friendly and helpful. A must visit restaurant for anyone near Almancil

“Good food, good wines and good vibes!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2012

The restaurant Malveiro it's a fantastic venue to have a very nice meal and drink some excellent wines with a great pairing following the good tips of Leonel. Another thing that I loved is a special touch from Africa in some dishes...an outstanding prawns curry rice that remember my mother's recipe that was born in Mozambique!! Don't miss this place...using a fashion expression "It's a must have!". Enjoy with love!

“Excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 30, 2012

Malverio - food was excellent, service was great and personnel was absolutely perfect. Warm welcome and special focus for the kids and their food was spot on. Athmosphere was great - traditional Portuguese style. Lionel was.... what one can say, you have to see it yourself, heart of the place. Lionel's enthuasism with the wines and wines he has available impressed, excellent Portuguese wines which you would not run into.
Great thanks for all personnel. We will defenitely visit again!!!

“TOP of the TOP”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2012

One hidden gem that most of us would never imagine there could be at that unusual place... ;-)
And Lionel is the nicest person on earth, and welcomes you as no one else.
There is nothing to say but good things.
The food, the people, the restaurant... unique! ;-)
