We have been here numerous times over the years and it doesn't change, it's brilliant. Slightly out of town but well worth the 5 minute walk. The only authentic Indian restaurant in the area and makes a welcome change from the usual eating places.

The sign on the main road is the only clue to this delightful restaurant. Parking was plentiful in what appeared to be a quiet residential road. The friendly service was something that was really appreciated but not overdone. The food had some excellent tangy and spicy flavours and was hot just to the spiciness we had asked for. The restaurant... More

Although a short walk from the centre it is well worth it as the restaurant is in a lovely garden. We ate outside but the inside of the restaurant is beautiful too. The Manager is very attentive and the food is excellent although we didn't have room for dessert.

The popadum was greasy but the welcome was warm. The grilled tandoori chicken had taken on the taste of tart of the coals as probably heating coals were used to prepare the dish. The lamb tikka massala was not prepared in its sauce: the lamb was served like a tandoori lamb and the sauce came afterwards... I leave it up... More

We went to this restaurant having seen the reviews on TripAdvisor and both of us were not disappointed! Really good authentic Indian food and surprisingly much better than most we have had at home. Restaurant has a warm friendly feel and looks like a typical Portuguese villa. Service was attentive. Can highly recommend the peshwari naan, the tastiest we have... More

Went to this restaurant after reading other reviews. After eating Asian cuisine at home in Worcester and Birmingham I have been spoilt. Because of this I have always been sceptical of eating in holiday resorts. I am so pleased I did,this meal was up there as the best I have ever had. This is a very nice place run by... More

Having read good reviews we decided to try out O Licorne as it was a short drive from our hotel. We were the first customers of the evening, having two young children and hence dining early. First of all the restaurant is actually a villa that is a bit hidden up a small road just outside Olhos de Agua. There... More

A little off the beaten track but still within walking distance of Olhos town centre for example not much more than a 10 min walk from the post office. It has a very Portuguese look about the place but the food provided is very much authentic Indian cuisine. Our host & waitress for the evening was called Brity & the... More
