“Amazing place”
Reviewed August 24, 2013

We always pay this restaurant a visit when in Portugal and have never been disappointed. A lovely family run resturant where nothing is ever too much trouble. Pedro is a great chief who is always very proud of his food; as he should be . Fabio is a great host and nothing is ever too much trouble.
The prawns in garlic starter, is sensational and the steaks are the best I have ever had. The kids are well looked after and have alot of choice and they love the puddings. It's definitely worth trying to find as very reasonable and great, great food. Really love this restaurant with a nice family feel. Must go.

“Excellent”
Reviewed July 21, 2013

We have been to this restaurant every year since it opened at least once or twice when we are on holiday. We have never had a bad meal. The service is excellent as is the cuisine. They are most helpful with wine choices and prices are sensible. Hence could not understand why we were the only table last night on a Saturday at the height of the season.
They deserve support.

“Love love love this place!”
Reviewed July 12, 2013 via mobile

If you have not been here, then you are missing a treat! Pedro is a fantastic restauranteur. Great hospitality, great food, great wines. We visit this restaurant time and time again and have been doing so for the last few years. Nothing is ever too much trouble, we just love this place. So much so, Pedro even taught my husband the secrets to cooking his famous Portugese steak.
Keep up the fantastic work Pedro and family :0)

“A Real Gem in Almancil”
Reviewed July 8, 2013 via mobile

Six of us had dinner here and everything said by the previous reviewers is spot on. We have been eating regularly in restaurants around Quinta do Lago for many years, but this was recommended to us by somebody who lives here and so we thought we'd give in a try.

The starters were all fantastic. We had prawns in garlic and olive oil that were sensational, and prawns with chilli sauce, which also got a massive thumbs up. For our main course 4 of us shared two sea bass which was excellently filleted at the table and tasted delicious and two had fillet steak.mthe verdict was that "with the possible exception of Gourmet Natural, that was the best steak we have ever had". We asked Fabio, the excellent owner, for a recommendation for he wine and he chose a really nice one. We were then too full for pudding!

The restaurant doesn't look great from the outside, and it would be easy to miss, but if you want an outstanding meal, with really attentive staff, who really valued our custom, then I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this restaurant. Better food and better service than other places in the area where you are paying significantly more.

Go there, and I don't think that you'll be disappointed.
