“Well below average”
Reviewed November 3, 2013 via mobile

We went with a group for a special birthday. What a sheer disappointment.
We were sat in the restaurant amongst smokers !!!! When we made a comment, we were moved to a back room which is NOT cozy at all. Where there is a massive TV screen showing a local football match, which the waiters all crowed round to watch, while we were having our dinner.
The food was average, service average, and expensive for the Algarve!
Not to be repeated ever again!

“Panoramic Views from the terrace”
Reviewed November 2, 2013

This is one of 2 Infante restaurants. The principal restaurant is vast and the best bet is a table on the terrace overlooking the sea. The menu is comprehensive and both seafood and meat dishes presented imaginatively. When full - like Sunday lunch time - the service leaves a little to be desired but is generally pleasant. Some dishes are presented spectacularly e.g. giant prawns and monkfish hanging on skewers. A good place for dining with friends but not for an intimate meal for two.

“Above average, great fish.”
Reviewed October 27, 2013

Food is not adventurous but what you get here is good traditional local dishes well prepared using fresh ingredients. Portions are huge and the food tasty. We shared a bacalao a braz as a starter and it was truly wonderful. Have absolutely no complaints about the food or the service. The restaurant has fresh modern decor with great views and a friendly ambience. Would happily return .

“One of the better in this part of Algarve”
Reviewed October 19, 2013

I have been to this restaurant many times, it is one of the best in this part of Algarve, but it's not a gourmet restaurant. a lot of traditional food plates. This is a very popular place among local people

“Large and impersonal”
Reviewed October 6, 2013

Great restaurant but at low season, there is minimal atmosphere. We went twice and the meals looked the same - wished we could have had chicken piri piri! No restaurants had this locally!
