“Great!!”
Reviewed August 6, 2013

Basic cafe, lovely owners, very acomodating. They don`t generally cook food on an evening but they will do if you ask, super cheap too. Great to pop in for breakfast, and great straight from the beach!

“wonderful just wonderful”
Reviewed June 20, 2013

We visited this Café after some very disappointing meals at bigger restaurants in the area and reading rave reviews on Tripadvisor, the food is basic Portuguese cuisine and very good at that, we sat outside I had the grilled meats and my companion had the pork chops- well to be honest I some as well the portions are truly large and good a litre of red wine deserts and tip the bill was still under 20 euros, looks very little from outside but is wonderful food.

“Don't judge a book by it's cover”
Reviewed February 9, 2013

Cafe Rio is very unpretentious in looks from the exterior, it has a large undercover exterioir but a small inside cafe area which is where we like to eat. His lunch meal of the day menu is €8.50 and includes absolutely everything a cover, LARGE main course half a litre of wine or a beerr and your desset AND coffee.most charge for coffee on the plate of the day. His bifanas and snack meals are excellent too and all reasonably priced. His evening meals are superb and if you preorder he will make anything tou ask for, I have requested a Feshwada, a Portuguese national dish with pork and beans which seems to have disappeared from most menus as its a long cooking process. I will let you know what its like when we go to eat it next week!
His piri piri chicken is the best around Luz, Lagos area by far, His wines are from a local vineyard and the price reflects this, 2 euros for half a litre and its always well filled.
It's a hidden gem for good food at a good price, its on the Burgau road, opposiye Gustos.He closes on Wednesdays.
