We came to this restaurant 3 times twice to eat in and once for take away - the food is excellent quality, good value and well presented. The staff were really lovely and we were made to feel welcome. My only gripe is that take away prices were the same as restaurant prices. Really worth a visit if you like... More

We were recommended this pizzaria by a local and we ended up visiting three times in one week because it was so good! The menu is just right with enough to choose from, including all the classics. The pizzas are tasty and the salads are even fresher! All of that topped off by impeccable service - we were so happy... More

Loved this place, one of the cheaper places to eat out in praia and the food was delish! We ordered standard pizzas but when the kids turned up for 3euro a pizza, we realized we could of easily just had that size portion. Garlic bread is recommended. Shame we found this gem on the last night.

We stumbled upon the place on a busy Friday night. It's at the back of the Belo Horizonte hotel which faces onto the strip. Excellent pizzas and other food. Was a little quieter as it's off the beaten track but great food and friendly service at a good price.

You can get a glass of house red for 1.50 or a bottle for around 7 euro. The interior is dated but has... More

"Oliver's" is just off the main strip. Very relaxing atmosphere and comfortable decor. My Partners "Spag Bol" was perfect and my Pizza, the house special was excellent. It was nearly full, unlike other nearby establishments, and used by locals. Prices were competitive and drinks also.
