It is best to book and to remember they do not take cards. Pricier than surrounding restaurants but for that bit of class and a special meal it is well worth it. We both had the sea bass which was beautiful and then a nice dessert followed by coffee and we also had a bottle of wine. The service was... More

The menu offers a wide variety of food: local as well as exotic and the portions are generous. Everything is very fresh and tasty. I recommend the spring rolls and the rack of lamb. The wine list is awesome too! The service is very friendly and attentive.

We wanted to invite a group of German friends to a nice restaurant with Portuguese food and, spot on. We all loved the restaurant and the food. Service was good, and the food presentation awesome for the price we´ve paid. We are definitely going back and totally recommend it.

This particular resturant has it all, great food, service and ambyonce by the bucket full. You can even dress up and make it a special occasion but I guarantee you will not be dissapointed. Just try the Gin and Tonic or have a choice of some truely memorable wines.

We have been visiting the algarve for over 20 years enjoying as much fresh fish as we can eat, amazing meat and scrumptious chicken, but just sometimes you just want something a little different, a change. Ysconderijo simple delivers this. The food is eclectic, Michelin style food but with a twist - there is plenty to eat! From the moment... More

As everyone who has been this restaurant is fantastic and very cheap for what you get. Had the tomahawk steak only complaint I couldn't eat it all. Make sure you book, a brilliant asset to Sao Bras

Fillet steak for 17 euros is exceptional value.best steak we've had in the area so far. Staff very polite and attentive but friendly... More

This is a place to go for special occasions. Food is of high standard.However it has no atmosphere and I always hate it when you can never find anyone to pay the bill
