Menta Pimenta (apparently it means pepper and mint - lamb is the speciality) is quite different from the other restaurants in the area. There's a lovely quiet terrace at the back, and even though it was full it still felt peaceful! The food was beautifully cooked - for starters, get the prawns (a contender for 'best starter of the holiday' amongst my family), and you have to try the lamb. The rack of lamb was ace. As a minor criticism, I'd advise them to start doing gravies (more of an English concept, I know) - but they managed to produce a meat sauce when we asked for gravy! The staff were extremely accommodating at meeting the specific times we gave for our courses to arrive (one member of our party coming directly to the restaurant from the airport). We'll be back!
