Well everytime we go here we have a wonderful chat with Christine and absolutely super food prepared by Ed and staff. Ed has been cooking in the Algarve for well over 30 years, you'd be forgiven for not finding it on your first trip because...More

Food excellent and varied- something for everyone. We had a mix of steak and fish dishes and all enjoyed them. Setting is lovely in a courtyard with other bars and restaurants. Service friendly and helpful. A great leisurely meal in a nice atmosphere.

Went here on a recommendation and certainly wasn't disappointed. Super choice of mains, fantastic desserts and very good service - all set in in a secluded courtyard. Will definitely visit again

What a great find this restaurant was. Perfect food, perfect service. Very good with the children. Set with a warm atmosphere and just a short distance from the bustle of the town centre. It was a busy evening (I suspect most evenings here are), but...More
