Great place to eat or get a takeaway. Famous and rightly so for its excellent chicken, friendly service and exceptional prices. Definitely worth a visit if you are in the area.

This has to be one of the best restaurants in Sao Bras and for our family it is always on our list whenever we visit the area. The restaurant is arranged in typical Portugese fashion with long tables and a few smaller tables dotted around for smaller groups. Many choose the chicken,chips and green salad for 4.50 euros which is... More

This is the most famous of chicken grills in São Bras. Nice place to eat an is really cheap too... can't beat the chicken here, but service could be slow at times due to the amount of people that come here for a meal.

If culinary presentation is important; to be good, food has to look good, and all that. Then the rather bright interior may ruffle your aesthetic feathers. Here is where the functional meets pas á jour, the bland collides with the mediocre in a delightful contrivance of unpretentious cosiness, while unashamedly tasteless. The chicken of course is good, in-fact it’s very... More

We've been visiting Luis for over 25 years - it's still my favourite place to eat. Great value and well cooked food. Service is friendly and efficient, so of the waiters have been working there for as long as I remember. Chicken is great as is the Lombinos altejana. It does get very busy so be prepared to share the... More

We went here with friends who have been going for years. Its reputation is well deserved with delicious chicken cooked over hot coals served with chips and salad. One of us had the pork fillet and it was even better than the chicken. Lovely atmosphere and very reasonable prices

My wife and I went here after reading good reviews. The place was everything that we read about. Very Spartan atmosphere, but good food at very reasonable prices. We ate there a couple of times and tried a few dishes, but the best value is the chicken. Unlike others we found a fair smattering of locals as well as tourists,... More

We have been coming here for the last 25 years and never disappoints. Talk about value for money, only wish we were staying nearer to come every night but travelling from Vilamoura is worth it at least three times during our holiday. Vito deserves a special mention, excellent service. If you want authentic Piri Piri chicken and chips this is... More

If you're looking for a 4.5 € meal, this is the place to go. Their grilled chicken with salad and fries is a great value for money meal! We stopped by a Saturday night, and got one of the last available tables. It's quite busy, but definitely worth a visit!

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!
