“Superb food and hosts”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2013 via mobile

Ate here twice during a 1 week stay. The first thing you notice is the exceptional service. Warm, friendly, informative and passionate about all that they do.
Every meal was lovely and included the Cod on a slate tile, steaks, Monkfish pasta and a freshly caught sea-bass by the owners son less than 3 hours before eating. You can't get that at home!!
The house wine was the best we had all week and we even stopped for a glass (or bottle..) one night after eating elsewhere. The red is one of the nicest I have ever had the pleasure of drinking.
Rest of the family stayed another week after we came home and went a further 3 times!

A great find and a pleasant surprise that they belong to the same family as the owners on O Tiago in Budens.

You'll not be disappointed!!

“Going from Strength to Strength. Don't Miss Out”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2013

We were visiting again after our last visit in September and can only say that Nina and Luiz have improved ( not that I thought it was possible). Once again, nothing is too much trouble for this lovely couple and their family.We asked for a couple of dishes that were not on the menu and once again, Nina cooked them to perfection.The spare ribs, which are on the menu, are wonderful, succulent and falling off the bone. Luiz, as usual, is the perfect host and I think that 3 visits in 9 days must say a lot about what we think of this restaurant.We had taken my brother and sister in law with us this time and they enjoyed it as much as we did - my sister in law particularly loved the mussels! I hope you continue to go from strength to strength and look foward to another visit soon.

“O Buzio's Fantastic Fish Pie”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2013

Hi, found this wee restaurant at the end of the road in Salema, Portugal just off the beach. Absolutely fantastic! - the service is great, décor lovely and food to die for....... we had a fab night there - the karaoke was on the night we visited and I would definitely recommend a visit if you were near. Its about 20 minutes in a taxi from Lagos.

“The Perfect Steak”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2013

Just off the beaten track this restaurant has a really nice Portuguese family feel. The steak i had was absolutely perfect and we ended going back for other meals. Tapas is also a speciality here and the welcome from your host is great....the menu caters for everybody including children....i really recommend this Restaurant as the value for money is also excellent....well worth a visit or two !!!!!!

“Great value for money”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2013

I think we caught them on an off day as the service was very slow. We only had a main course and drinks but it tasted great. I would eat here again.
