We heard about it at the front desk of our hotel. A smaller restaurant just before the Main Street. The food was excellent! Lots of choices, the owner and staff were very friendly and helpful. We are going back again before we leave Portimao.

Firstly, don’t be put off by the position and outer appearance. The restaurant itself looks quite plain from the outside and is on the dual carriageway just off the roundabout with the fountains (and seagulls). So not on the main strip as such. Traditional Portuguese...More

Discovered this restaurant by accident. As we walked by every evening it was packed so we decided to try it. We loved it and ate there most nights after that. Beautiful food, friendly atmosphere, great service and such good value. Would totally recommend it.

We were lucky to get a free table at dinner time. Great place with very tasty food. I would recommend it any time. The service was spot on and the desert magic 😉.

Decided to visit based on the reviews on here - and so glad we did. A warm welcome, friendly staff, nice atmosphere, delicious food, more than ample portions and plied with enough booze to make the walk home interesting. Highly recommended.

We have been the resort six times now. We eat at this fantastic, friendly, family run restaurant 2 or 3 times every holiday. Good wholesome Portuguese food.

4 adults, 4 kids - we all had great time here. Kids ate spaghetti bolognese which was above all expectations, really delicious. Adults tried 2 types of soups, both tasted heavenly. I can also recommend fisherman's risotto and tuna steak algarvian style.

Really nice place, lovely genuine Portuguese food at great prices. We shared calamari, which I highly recommend. I then had swordfish, which was perfectly cooked, but the sauce was a bit watery. My partner had Piri Piri chicken,which was nice, if a little lacking in...More
