“Good tapas at a great price”
Reviewed October 30, 2013 via mobile

Ate here for the first time last night and will definitely be back. Recommend by one of the locsls this has only been open since last year but is a welcome addition to the scene. If you like tapas then this is for you. The moroccan tagine, spicy chicken wings and apple pie can all be recommended. Meal for 2 with wine was 60 euros.

“Fantastic Long overdue”
Reviewed October 25, 2013

Just what this area needed, there are plenty of places that serve good good, however this tends to come at a price locally, brilliant concept. Simple menu, quality food and plenty of it at extremely reasonable price. €12.50 half chicken, proper chips, huge salad and half carafe wine. Many of the local restaurants struggle to provide a starter for this money

Been coming to the algarve since mid 70's This place is a blast from the past before the restaurants starting chasing the £, really nice to leave at the end of the meal and not feel that you've been cheated

Very friendly and attentive staff. Decor is reminiscent of Nandos, however this is where the similarity ends as the quality of food is far superior

Children's menu available, also noticed a few people came in and collected take away orders

Will definitely be going back

“Quick and Easy”
Reviewed October 24, 2013

Myself and my husband went there last weekend. We shared the tapas selection for €35. It had fish cakes, scallops in bacon, chicken wings, meatballs, and a few more. It was really good. Washed down with a nice house white. Good value, fast friendly service. Will definitely be back

“The Real Chicken Place”
Reviewed October 18, 2013

We have visited both chicken restaurants in the area but this one has definitely the "Best chicken". We visited with my family of 7 and had a great meal. The menu is relatively simple with chicken being the centrepiece. My wife and I ordered the chicken piri piri with tomato salad and chips. It was the best chicken I had ever had . It looked liked a real chicken when it arrived, not chopped into bits. It was big and had plenty of meat which was moist and tasted fantastic with the piri piri sauce. 3 children had the spare ribs which were smothered in a lovely barbecue sauce. One of the others had the plain chicken which he described as "great" moist,plump chicken perfectly cooked. The other chicken with tomato and garlic which was also very nice. The decor was simple but clean. The service was quick and very friendly. Definitely the best chicken restaurant in the area and was terrific value.
