“Wonderful Fresh Food, Good Prices, Friendly Atmosphere”
Reviewed December 22, 2012

I was delighted with my food at this restaurant. So much so, we visited again before we left Portugal.

The staff are friendly and eager to help. The food is delicious, and the Swordfish steak was far larger than anything I have ever managed to buy in a supermarket in the UK.

Very good portions of delicious food. We sat outside as the restaurant is quite busy of an evening with locals (which is a good thing.)

Food is cooked freshly so you do wait for it, but while waiting enjoy a Super Bock and look around at locals enjoying their meals.

Small and friendly restaurant. Your host Olav is always friendly and offers excellent food at value for money prices. Well worth a visit.

“Family run with fantastic food”
Reviewed October 17, 2012 via mobile

When my family comes to Ferragudo this is always our first stop. Great portion size, typically Portuguese so be prepared to wait but it's worth it!

“Family run with fantastic food”
Reviewed October 16, 2012

When my family comes to Ferragudo this is always our first stops for dinner. The quality and quantity is excellent. Olav and Luis do a fantastic job front of house and his mother and the crew work just as hard in the kitchen. Typically Portuguese atmosphere so if it's fast food you are looking then this is not the place for you, but the wait is worth it!
