I have to come here to correct the review of Mr. Jaafonseca.
When he says:

“What really upsets me is that I'm Portuguese and I know for a fact that not taking cards is actually a technique that restaurants use to evade paying taxes, so shame on them. “

He actually means that is a usual technique to “AVOID Bank Commissions”, something that I can not confirm or deny if it is happening or just was any sort of temporary technical TPA problem in communication.

In fact “A Cabana” / “La Cabane” is not one but two excellent restaurants, each one of his kind owned by the same family now for more than 30 years, each one near the corner of the street but in an angle that when you see one, can’t see the other.

“A Cabana” managed by Mr Carlos offers a large variety of fresh fish and meat and when I go there I’m looking for grilled food.
“La Cabane” is managed by his wife. Mrs Beatrice is a French lady that offers a wonderful international cuisine with excellent presentation and appreciated by the most demanding tastes offering still a large variety of French wines as nobody else around.
Warm welcome, very adequate service, excellent menu, large portion and good price with one of the owners checking around constantly if everything is all right.
Definitively, a place to go and enjoy a superb meal.

the food for was reasonably priced, the hostess was v helpful, food and desserts gorgeous- be warned we went off peak and were turned away the first night as fully booked, we were able to book for the night after. Also they do a free pick up and drop service for hotels in the vilamoura, Quarteira and Vila Sol areas- which was great!

you should be aware that the pub looking restuarnt just round the corner and across the road is owned by the same owner- i really wish Beatrice the owner had simply said to us on the first night when it was fully booked that we should go to the linked restaurant bar as this was slightly cheaper- the food was very similar, very nice, same desserts just a little more rufgged in that long wooden benches and more portugese people in there- it was only after we discosed that La Cabane is run by the wife, and the bar/restuarant across the road is run by her husband

both venues v nice in there own way and v nice food/ wine

We were recommended this resuraunt by several people. The food and atmosphere is excellent, they pick you up, and drop you off at your accomodation. We loved it so much, we went back for our last night dinner.

Anyone visiting Quarteira must visit this restaurant. We had the best food on our recent Portuguse holiday. Having eaten at one of the waterside restaurants on a previous occasion and were ripped off, we decided to ask a local who recommended La Cabane.

The welcome was wonderful by the owner. Nothing was too much trouble. The Food and service second to none and the house red wonderful and reasonably priced.

You can get a free taxi if you stay in Quarteira but we were staying a Acoteias so had to drive but it was well worth the effort.

After earing my friends talking about it I went in a birthday party to try it out. I just have one thing to say...normal standard portuguese restaurant. The food is not bad but is nothing special either.
You can always go and try for yourself because sometimes I can be realy picky when it comes to food.
