You want to try a good chicken piri piri dish, the REAL Algarvian one? You HAVE to visit this restaurant! Have 1/2 a chicken with french fries & salad! Don't look around, don't judge the staff. It's not about service or atmosphere. It's about authentic...More

Restaurant very good with great atmosphere and great food and prices Pity about some of the staff who are grumpy and give the impression they would prefer to be at home. Maybe too many years serving chicken

We decided to try Marufo 2 for a change as Marufo 1 was very busy. We had a great meal, not fine dining but we didn't expect it would be. Staff were friendly and the atmosphere was good. We had a varied selection including Soup,...More

Regular restaurant and family favourite when we visit Quinta do Lago. Simple but tastey food. Chicken, chips and salad. Always busy and a great atmosphere - great value for money. You will not be disappointed.
