Description: Simply Tapas and Vinho has taken the locals by storm and has quickly established itself to be the place to be and the place to be seen in. 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.

We started with the chefs selection and enjoyed everything that came. After speaking with the host he recommended the pork cheeks which were absolutely delicious. The service was friendly and if anything a little too rapid and the meal was over rather quickly. We weren't under any pressure to vacate our table though and we enjoyed our visit.

Good value, simple food, slightly greasy (deep fried?) chicken, fresh salad, decent chips, choice of sauces (piri piri, curry, garlic) plus carafe of OK house wine for 12.50 euros, 10 without the wine. Good value for this part of the Algarve. Cheery staff, rapid service, pleasant covered verandah facing the road.

Excellent presentation and lovely staff, tapas very good but why were they offering a 'chicken curry', just keep it as Spanish and as authentic as possible and forget these types of unnecessary deviations?!
That was the only negative point (other than the location which isn't exactly 'picturesque' but a minor factor as we always go back!), a decent and reasonably priced restaurant.

Why bother to BBQ when this restaurant takes all the hard work out of it? With change too!

As the name suggests; informal atmosphere but with a twist.

The owner of SF&Tapas, Margo, knows a thing or two about how to run a restaurant. And some!

What works so well here is the most diligent of managers Katarina & her equally capable side kick Maria.They do it so well!

First impressions; spotlessly clean. Open ranch style tables to accommodate parties or family's
.
The menu is uncomplicated yet inviting too. Chicken served up 4 ways with a different sauce to choose from, with plenty of alternative if you so wish.

With great food from the grill; a fine salad; proper chips & a flagon of wine for €12.50, what are you waiting for? Turn off the BBQ & get yourself down there now.

Simply Frango and Vinho offers a similar concept to its sister restaurant (Simply Tapas) nearby. As its name suggests the main offering is chicken although a few other dishes are available. The main offering is half a plump chicken with chips, a salad and wine. At €12.50 it's really good value. You can ring the changes a bit with the sharing platter of hot wings, spicy thighs, crispy drumsticks and a dish of chicken curry. Again coming with a carafe of wine for €25 it's great value.
It's certainly not fine dining but its not meant to be and while the service was ok it could be better.
The oddest part of our visit was that, having ordered the couvert, it preceded our main courses by less than one minute so we didn't get the chance to appreciate it and our table was soon overcrowded with platters of food.
Will certainly go again though
