We were recommended this restaurant when we were at the Caravela the night before. Other benefit it was easy walking distance from our hotel.

Well worth a visit and the monkfish cataplana was superb. Followed by crepe suzette that was cooked at the table. First time had ordered crepe suzette and it will not be the last. Dot had the flambeed strawberries that were just a little too sweet but there again if you like sweet food go for it. Service was excellent and very friendly (but that probably sums up the Portuguese).Would certainly go back

Yes this is a restaurant that has a lot of ex-pats eating, but do not let that discourage you from visiting. This IS a typical Portuguese restaurant that serves typical Portuguese food. It has a good ambience, attentive staff and a good wine list that doesn't have to be expensive. The food is always first class. It would be advisable to book a table if you don't want to wait as the restaurant is always full - a sure sign that it is good!

Brought 8 people to this restaurant on April 2. The staff were extremely welcoming and helpful. The quality of food was outstanding and represented exceptionally good value for money. 12 of our group went back on April 4 and had a similar pleasant experience so much so that all 27 of our golf group went there on April 5. For some of the group service was a little slow on the last night nevertheless it was worth the wait. I ate chicken with mushroom sauce, salmon steak and portuguese beef over the three nights and found all of them to be beautiful. The staff were more than happy to accommodate a wider range of culinary tastes amongst our group.
There was excellent quality house wine on offer at €8.80 per bottle. I would highly recommend this restaurant to all. We stayed at Penina golf resort, the local taxis cost us €11 per single trip.

This place gets everything right. The warm welcome, the comfortable interior, the food, the atmosphere, the price , the wine. Both the restaurant and some of the staff have been there for some time and their relaxed efficiency makes the dining experience enjoyable. Portuguese food well cooked and presented is satisfying rather than inventive but its altogether a pleasant experience and booking is essential.
