This is an unpretentious restaurant that knows what to do and how to do it well. Do not come here if you want a quiet romantic meal for two. This is not fast food but more excellently cooked food served very promptly. It is also...More

Last night of our holidays and it's back to "Chicken Charlies" because the grilled chicken is so good. They have other things on the menu, but I can't see past the chicken, which at 4.50 Euro is sensational value too. This will be the fourth...More

Centrally placed - large shared tables - great meat from the grill - local wine by the carafe and Piri piri sauce to spice it all up - delicious and very reasonable too !!

We arrived on our first evening in Sao Bras very late to the restaurant. Nevertheless we were friendly welcomed and served very kind. The food was good, the portions large, the wine was delicious. And the price was pleasingly low. We will come back again.

This was one of those places that everyone suggests you go to for the best chicken and chips in the Algarve. No frills, no ceremony, just really good chicken and chips (or fish or steak or pork). The advise was to arrive early and this...More

Sorry for the delay in responding. They don't take reservations. Even with a pretty long line outside, it moves fast --longer wait for large parties, but everyone sits at long tables, often next to people they don't know... More

I cannot believe no one has reviewed this restaurant. The cheapest, most reliable, best service grill restaurant in Sao Bras - always busy and lots of fresh fish for us non meat eaters. Chicken and chips is 4 euros - beat that!
