This is a gem of a restaurant. We always eat here when we come to Guia and we are never disappointed. The chicken piri piri is the best in town and excellent value for money but do try the piri piri prawns. We had these the other evening with a big mixed salad and a bottle of Planalto - fantastic!!... More

Had Saturday lunch here, we made an excellent choice. Piri piri chicken all round and tomato salad with their dressing and piri sauce. Staff friendly and the outside veranda perfect combination of being outside but protected. Reasonably priced.

During a family holiday in Portugal, my family and I visited Guia to try the famous Piri Piri Chicken where it originated from. We searched Trip advisor to find palladium high up on the list. The service was exceptional, who catered well for our young daughter (friendly but not over friendly)! We was hoping the chicken was going to have... More

My wife and I went here on a Saturday early evening, for the third time. The welcome from the owner and his son was, as usual, fantastic, with lots of conversations about football, weather, UK Brexit, etc. We ordered the garlic prawns for two and the Piri Piri chicken, plus a bottle of the local red wine. The food is... More

Arrived immediately after a short drive from Faro airport, starving hungry. So glad we chose this place for our first taste of Portuguese food. The friendly welcome was appreciated and our waiter was fun and great with our children. The chicken was so tasty washed down with Vinho Verde!! Will definitely go back to try Cataplana.

We have been visiting Diogo's restaurant for the last eight years and have always received excellent food and service. A lovely traditional Portuguese restaurant. The piri piri chicken is fantastic. There is a good selection of other dishes on the menu but I always go for piri piri, the traditional dish of Guia. No hesitation in recommending. You can see... More

Lovely to get back to Guia and first stop Palladium for an honest Portuguese meal, well cooked by Batiste and served with style by Diogo or Joao. Menu is simple and tasty with excellent fresh salad and terrific wines. Been a fan for 12 years and even though Diogo threatens to retire, know that the tradition will live on. Parabens!
