After a two years absence nothing has changed. Great food at a fair price with wonderful service from our old friend João and the staff. This establishment has the most varied menu in Olhos D'Agua that caters for all tastes.

Go here. We ended up eating here three times on our stay in the Algarve. The staff were so friendly and treated you as if you were family. We stumbled across it after walking by - the place was heaving and had a good atmosphere. By far the best place we tried in Olhos de Agua which is a real... More

If you are ok to wait for hours to be served , and have to ask 3-4 times for a menu , then this is the place for you .as for the food , fillet of sea bass with more bones in it than a graveyard, and a bland sword fish steak , even got told off for daring to... More

Although the food was nice i was suprised that when i ordered peri peri chicken, the chicken wasnt breast but small wings & drumsticks & the peri peri was in a small bottle. I guess i thought the chicken would have been marinated before cooking having said that the food was nice. Service a little slow as it was busy... More

After reading reviews on TA, decided to try this restaurant and was not disappointed. We were made to feel very welcome and the service was attentive without being overbearing. The garlic bread starter was delicious but the star if the meal was definitely the salmon. Very generous portion, cooked to perfection. I would highly recommend a visit if you are... More

This is the second time we have been to this Resturant and again left unimpressed with the food. The staff worked hard and were very plesant but the meal was not great. In fact we would have been better off staying in our A/I Hotel but we are keen to suport the local Village Buisnesses. The starter of Prawn Cocktail... More

We arrived at the restaurant and it was quaint, but in decent standing. On the recommendation of TripAdvisor, we thought we'd check it out. We did have a okay experience, but there was little in way of ambiance from the seating we selected near the entrance. At first, the waiting staff was very attentive, and we felt it was even...

We have been coming to this part of the Algarve for fifteen years and this is one of the best places to eat. Located half way down the hill in Olhos de Agua it has many repeat customers. Whilst not enjoying the views further down , the food is good honest Portuguese fare with good service and reasonable prices. Family... More
