“Great Find - made our trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 19, 2012

We wondered into this place thinking it was a pizza place. It's not. It's a family-run, local food (plus pizza and burger) place. The wife cooks, the husband serves (and speaks excellent English) and the kids do their homework at a back table. The food was superb. She really is an outstanding chef. We ate there two nights during "low" season and had that night's speciality. One night we had a traditional pork and clams dish and the next goat ribs. Both were delicious.
The owner also bottles his own fruit liqueurs. Prices were 10 Euros or less for the entrees.

“wonderful experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 10, 2012

It is the most delightful small restaurant situated in a side street near to the castle. The food was excellent, prices unbelievable, and well worth a visit. One of the best restaurants I have visited in the Algarve. Be prepared to be amazed!
