After considerable research in Spain, chef has put his own slant on many well known and traditional favourites as well as other more adventurous and interesting fare. If you are with a large party the Chef's Table provides the perfect setting. Whilst there check out the wide selection of gourmet delicacies on sale as well as a great selection of fine wines at reasonable prices.

“Great Tapas Experience”
Reviewed May 30, 2013

Had a pleasant and relaxed evening at this Tapas Restaurant, with a good and extensive choice of tapas dishes, and many wines. There is a separate large tabled area for a larger groups towards the bar, and this is ideal for a more relaxed experience if you want to take a larger party. When we booked this restaurant the helpful waiter ensured we had this table and we were not disappointed either with the food or the service. The squid, fish cakes and mushroom bruschetta were particular favourites!

“back again can't beleive Cheshire Idiot Boy”
Reviewed May 25, 2013

Well back in the algarve and went to Simply Tapas and found again the tapas superb ,interesting and varied also they continue to change things for the better for instance their calmares are now homemade, wine and staff fantastic.
All I can say about Cheshire Boys review is one why if he so does not like it does he keep going back? Or has he a personal issue with the owners? Or maybe he is a complete idiot? I have found the owners Paul & Margo delightful and the staff are excellent. Also following on from their great success they have now opened Simply Frango & Vinho next doirvwhich is also excellent But would suggest Cheshire Boy stays away from there as well as it is also excellent!

“Each to his own”
Reviewed May 20, 2013

If you are a lover of "harvester" type pubs, buy and eat frozen and convenience food on a regular basis and have little interest in food in general, you will doubtless find very little to fault at this restaurant. However, if you enjoy fresh seafood, locally sourced ingredients and freshly prepared food then this place probably won't be up your street. Each to his own I say.

“Great food wine and value for money”
Reviewed May 20, 2013

Myself and my wife discovered this restaurant last summer when staying nearby, and had such a lovely meal we were back 3 nights later. Great selection of dishes, with options of tasters or full meals. A particular favourite was the lamb tagine, and it was lovely to be able to enjoy them outside.

the wine selection is fantastic, with a range of prices and some good quality at the lower end.

Looking forward to coming back when we are over again in August.
