We ate at Rui's Steakhouse last night for my husbands birthday and Rui prepared for us Beef Wellington which was truly out of this world. This young chef delivers food and service that excels in taste and diversity. The waitress Veronica cannot do enough for you and enjoys serving and being part of the overall experience. The restaurant is great... More

Rui's is always consistently good but he has excelled himself, with the introduction of a stunning new dish, beef wellington. Not only is it an exceptional dish it's amazing value for money. If you're looking for a great steak this is where to go.

Lovely staff. My filet mignon was the best I've ever tasted, absolutely pefect but my partner's t-bone wasn't very nice. To be fair we were asked if everything was okay and should have said then. Maybe it was a one-off. I would absolutely recommend the filet mignon though and everyone gets a playter of pate and bread on arrival, which... More

One of the better class restaurants at this end of the Algarve. A wide choice of food served at reasonable prices. The price of your main course includes the meat (or fish) and two additions such as a variety of potatoes and a variety of vegetables and also a sauce. Your choice !!! The steaks were great but the lamb... More

The steaks are of very good quality. Unfortunately, the sauces they offer are best described as gluppey heavily salted and processed. The waiter - Vinny was very attentive and professional (something that you don't really find in the Algarve). Better restaurants in the area for the money you pay. Ysconderijo is by far a better choice for around the same... More

What an experience to eat Steak here!! Three of us had Rib Eye and one had Pork wrapped in bacon. All meals were absolutely delightful. The service was fabulous and the wine (recommended by the waiter) was first class.
