I can only reiterate previous comments - inauspicious location and certainly does not look much from the outside. We walked in just after they opened at 7pm on a Saturday night and the majority of the tables were reserved. We ordered the rodizio having had a quick scan of the TripAdvisor reviews and also refused the 'couvert' of olives, marinated carrots, bread etc.

The rodizio came with hand cut 'proper' chips, rice, black beans and we ordered a tomato salad just to provide some veggies. The rodizio is a variety of grilled meats that are brought individually and every few minutes to your table on huge skewers from a bar-b-q and carved onto your plate - we had sausages, chicken thighs, chicken hearts, neck of beef, baby ribs, steak. The waiters just keep returning to your table until you say 'no more'!! You think that small chunks of meat would not be that filling but we have never eaten so much...we walked back to Vilamoura marina to let the meal go down!

The rodizio for two with the tomato salad, a litre of the house red (very smooth) and water came to €45 - excellent value. Friendly, good humoured staff. The best meal we had on our long weekend in Vilamoura.

Its not a restaurant for scenic views but for good eating and with the price value bar, it does the trick. Lovely variety of meat dishes. Great picanha! Dont forget the fried banana. A must to add that sweetness to the meal. Good price value. Highly recommended.

Don't be put off by the location or the look of the outside of this place as it doesn't do the inside any justice! The food was great and as the other reviewers have said it just kept coming!! It was all brilliant, even the Chicken hearts and Bulls Hump. The staff were really friendly and great with the kids, taking them off to see the meats being cooked. The price was really good, 5 adults and 4 kids worked at at €15 per head inc vodkas and wines.
This place was great and if your in the area and you like meat then go find it!!

We ate here tonight as we'd read the favourable trip advisor reviews. We certainly weren't disappointed.
We had the meat banquet which is skewered meats, grilled and brought to your table where it is carved an served to you. All of the meats were fabulous and tasty.
Beware - it comes thick and fast until you say you've had enough.
It's not the cheapest meal around but it's certainly great value for money.
We had a most njoyable meal and will certainly be back.
Thank you.

It has been over 3 years since I have been and in that time it has extended into next door. In these economic times an indication they must be doing something right. All four of us opted for the Ridizo, an endless stream of meal. Save space for the picanha meat at the end (a time when you've probably had enough). Desserts surprisingly expensive for an off the beat restaurant frequented by the Portuguese.
Warm welcome and we'll served. Closed on Sunday.
