Very large portions. Great service, and excellent food.
The stone steak is to die for, but as others have said it's huge...easily enough for two.
Don't be put off by the 'cafe' like exterior...it's nice inside.
Good value for money...English speaking waiters.

Been visiting manta rota for the last 10 years and always make at least 1 trip to Sabinos when I'm down. The steak on a stone is good if you haven't had it before, but the rest of the steaks are equally huge and perfectly cooked to suit your taste.

The seafood is always good in this region but the clams here are very good too.

Not the cheapest in this area by far but still a lot cheaper then at home (England) for the quality and amount of food you get.

Fantastic! See you again in May!

The outside of this little gem of a restaurant belies what is inside. Clean, cheerful with welcoming staff. The meal was delicious, and plentiful. One member of our party had the steak on the stone, and he declared it was the best steak he had ever eaten.I tried my best to eat my ten lamb chops,but Zoe my dog had a treat in store when I took a couple home for her.... such a waste.
When the bill arrived we were so surprised as the price was so reasonable. I will certainly visit again with friends and family

Sabinos is in my opinion the best restaurant in the local area, from fantastic fresh seafood to flavoursome meats. A little more pricey then the rest of the restaurants in Mata Rota or Vila Nova de Cacela but with a couple of drinks and a fantastic 3 course meal i don't think i have ever spent more then £35 euros per head, which for the quality is unbelievable. As most people I've had the steak on a stone many times, but the black pork is also very good for people who like their meat. The baby clams ( conchilias) are my favourite to start or the prawns in tomato and garlic.
This is an all round superb restaurant and if you are in the area it is a must for a perfect evening with family or friends!

Will be back there in Feb and May!!
