“Off the beaten track but worth the search!”
Reviewed May 1, 2013

A group of 6 of mixed nationalities including 2 fluent Lussophones(i.e.they speak Portuguese!). Food of an excellent standard (Mozambique prawns were to die for) and wine of a reasonable standard, clientele predominately ex-pat British. Service was a bit "Good cop v Bad cop" on occasions in that one waitress was a bit abrupt and the other rather timid but on the whole they did a good job. Not sure if it will retain it's TA "numero uno" status for much longer in view of the competition locally.

“Superb Experience”
Reviewed April 20, 2013

We had read the reviews and on last night of our holiday we decided to give Malveiro a try. We should probably be negative to protect availability in future but the food ,service and total experience was excellent . Most of the clientele were local which is a massive positive and from the moment we arrived til we left it was a completely positive experience. Ask for the wine recommendations simply excellent and exceptional value. Will be back I am sure over and over again

“Excellent”
Reviewed April 10, 2013

I've been coming here my whole life, and although the prices have risen the food and staff are still excellent!
The staff are THEE friendliest people and bend over backwards to please.
The food it full of flavour and never disappointing.
Although the location on the side of a road is slightly odd, I wouldn't change it as it add character and wouldn't be the same!

Love, love, love

“An evening here is a must on any trip to the Algarve!”
Reviewed April 4, 2013 via mobile

You must reserve at least one meal of your trip for Restaurante Malveiro, you won't regret it. Relaxed, friendly and yummy yummy food. The menu is based on family recipes passed down, It's the best 'home cooked' meal with a fantastic wine list, atmosphere and value for money you will get. P.s try the pork with dates....

“Memorable evening”
Reviewed April 4, 2013

Spent a wonderful evening at Malveiro - food was great and service was impeccable. Lionel could not have done enough for us - he brought the children lots of extras and made our evening very special. Difficult to park outside but once there could not fault it. Beware - cards not accepted, so bring cash
