Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Good food. They have a good reputation and prices are above other places in the area. Menu has several dishes to cater for different dates. Nice wine list too. This is a destination for motorcycle riders who come and go reving their engines. This is...a real nuisance if you sit outside but they do not seem to care a bit.More

We had the lunch of the day. Chicken, Simple, well made. priced correctly. The couvert ( ok, we did not ask for it, but whatever. If you don't eat it, it is not on your bill. ) was excellent ham freshly cut, very good cheese...and perfect sausage. People are very friendly as well. We certainly recommend this place.More

DO NOT GO TO THIS PLACE......... it is a RIP-OFF for vary basic food, which was not well cooked.!!! You are presented with very expensive couvert (that you did not order - now illegal in Portugal) , poor wine and poor food...... then hit with...an exorbitant bill. They spot foriegners ( and lets face it we are easy to spot) and target them. It is the only restaurant ( and I use the work reluctantly ) for miles and KNOWS this.....do yourself, your stomach and your pocket a favour.......drive past !!!More

Staff are very helpful. We got there at 12h with no reservation and had luck. We managed to have a table, but it is better to book in advance. It is a very requested place. Food is amazing. We were 5 people, asked for 4...different dishes and shared. We also had some starters (cheeses bread and olives). Desserts are also very good, homemade!! Spot on! :)More

The restaurant sits on the old main road that runs north to the Alentejo through the village of Cortelha. It offers an extensive food and wine menu with country specialities such as rabbit and wild boar. Prices are moderate. Parking is limited and patrons often...park after hours at the small service station across the road. The restaurant owners also offer adjacent b&b lodging that comes with a pool. The restaurant is popular and it’s worth making a reservation at weekends, especially for Sunday lunch when the Portuguese turn out in force. Cortelha is about 30 mins on a good road from Loule and an hour from Faro. Highly recommended,More

I went to Casa dos Presuntos on 8/19/18 with my brother, my parents and a couple of friends. I have been to Casa dos Presuntos quite a few time and we had my Parents 50th Wedding Anniversary catered by them. I had never written a...review about them before so I decided to do it now. If you want authentic regional Cuisine, this is the place to go. You cannot go wrong with any of the dishes. I have tried almost every dish on the menu and find it hard to decide what I should have since everything is so good. Typically we order a bunch of different entrees and share them. This time around we did the same. We order the black pig cheeks, Lamb roasted in the oven, wild boar Stew, Venison Stew, and also “ Perdiz” a wild bird typically from the Algarve region that is similar to a Partridge. Every thing was absolutely amazing. The also have a huge selection of wines which we took full advantage of. The owners and staff are the friendliest people you can ever meet and will do anything to accommodate your food and beverage needs. They also have a great selection of deserts. I could not decide between two of the deserts so I had both. They have a pastry called “ Torta de Alfarroba” which is from the Carib tree. The desert is to die for. A must try for anyone that appreciates deserts. They also have great “ Aguardente de Medronho” which is a fruit that is almost exclusively found in the Algarve region. The fruit is picked from a “Strawberry Tree” not an actual strawberry. Everytime I visit the Algarve I go to Casa dos Presuntos at least once and sometimes multiple times depending on how long my stay is. If you want an authentic regional food experience go and try it. You will not be disappointed. I guarantee you. They also have a small bed and breakfast I would call it. Very reasonably priced and Breakfast is included. They also just built a beautiful pool. If you want to be away from the Hustle and Bustle of the Tourist areas look them up. Thank you very much everyone. As usual the food and hospitality were second to none. Thank you again SérgioMore

Lovely drive up from Loulé - about 25 minutes through cork forests with great mountain views. We had roast octopus, black pork and lamb stew all excellent. Delicious wine and lovely homemade desserts. Great, relaxed, rural retreat - highly recommended.

Visited early weekday evening, we had full choice of where to sit. The owner is great and speaks very good English, which is great because my Portuguese is terrible. We were given several recommendation before going, which we tried. The lamb stew is great, very...tasty. House wine is a very good standard. Beware not to fill up on the appetiser, main courses are very generous. Very good selection of home made desserts. A very good evening, certainly will be going back.More
