The chicken cataplana which must be ordered in advance is always extremely tasty as well as being substantial. The restaurant was not busy when we were there but most of the others in the area were also quiet at this time.The remainder of the menu is extremely good value and you will be well looked after by the owner Antonio and his family.

I and 7 other friends go there every year when we visit Portugal for our annual golf week.
The sole is excellent. If you like fish cooked well but simply then you will like this restaurant.
The quality of the food is always the same. It is a Portuguese family restaurant that is great value.

Restaurant was very quiet but comfortable with a log fire blazing in one corner. Not the best steak I have ever eaten but friendly staff and reasonable value

We love this restaurant, it opened at the same time as we started coming to the Algarve and on every visit we ensure that we go. Out of season it's quiet but you are always guaranteed a warm welcome and decent Portuguese food. Family run and if you are lucky you will see all three generations in the evening.

We have been returning here for 20 years and would never miss. The food is always so fresh and home cooked, the vegetable soup is the best I have had anywhere as is the pork and clams cataplana absolutely full of meat and shellfish and a wonderful sauce - lovely with the house rice. It is the best value for money anywhere in the area do give it a try.
