every mouthful was delicious and in some cases an unexpected surprise! the flavour combinations were amazing. the chef is an artist (his art is on the walls and the front cover of the menu) and every plate was a work of art in itself. the staff were excellent and the sommelier was very good at assisting us with the extensive wine list. a great way to spend our first wedding anniversary.

“Great value lunch menu”
Reviewed October 31, 2012

Visited last week, end October 2012, on a rainy day. We were bored after nearly a week of monsoon rain! Lunch menu at €15 is fantastic value, choice of 2 starters, 2 mains & then their full desert menu at about €6-€9 per head. We ate very well, to startvsmoked duck salad for him, salmon two ways with rosti for me, pork saltimboca for us both (little disappointing, especially the unseasoned, unbuttered boiled vegetables), but desserts were great. Chocolate tasting plate & apple Charlotte tasted superb. The apple Charlotte did look a bit neon & scary, sitting in a pool of lime green coulis & the apple obviously having been poached in pink food colouring... It was a bit unnecessary I felt. The amuse bouches were exciting & delicious & unexpected at that price. €69 for lunch for 2, including a superb homemade hot bread basket, 2 coffees, 2 glasses of white wine & 3 courses. A lovely way to spend a rainy afternoon.

“Elegant and imaginative”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

The chef here has a star I think and he strives to surprise and titillate with imaginative presentation and unusual flavours and dishes. It is expensive at dinner but the fixed price lunch is a fantastic bargain. It is certainly an experience to dine there but if you go frequently the surprises lose their edge which is unfair of me to say but I live nearby so go more than most.

“Great value tasting menu”
Reviewed September 19, 2012

The tasting menu at 69 euro is great value. The quality of most of the dishes was excellent, particularly the lobster which could not have been bettered in any establishment. The staff were very efficient, knowledgeable and friendly, an absolute requirement. There are so many good restaurants in the Algarve that it would be difficult to make frequent visits to Henrique Leis but it is certainly one that I shall be looking forward to visiting in the near future.
