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.

I love Cafe bar Jophil. We stay a short walk away and often go for lunch during the week. I always opt for the menu of the day, it's €11.00 and has couvert, main, dessert, a, drink and coffee. It come with a small beer,...but they included my large beer in it. Amazing! You can also get a cheese toastie for €2.80 and fries for €3.80. The owners are amazing, very friendly, excellent food and excellent service. Today's choices were beef stew with potatoes or octopus rice, I had the beef stew and it was excellent. Probably be back tomorrow.More

I've been here for lunch more times than I can remember in the last 16 years. It never fails to satisfy. Today it was couvert, beef stew, chocolate mousse, a small beer and a coffee all for the princely sum of €9.50. Traditional Portuguese food...at an excellent price. Service, as always, was amazing, Covid rules being followed correctly. It's clean, safe, cheap and the food is fantastic. Can't wait to go again.More

This is a family run bar/restaurant. Always clean and a nice quiet place to sit on a hot afternoon or evening. They do serve local cuisine which is always excellent and reasonably priced. However, they serve Super Bock on draft with an ice cold glass,...this is by far the best beer I have tasted in the area. All prices are very reasonable.More

We’ve eaten here a few time and enjoyed the Prato do Dia and cheap drinks. However, they do not follow the Covid rules with masks pulled down when serving, no alcohol Gel - when we last visited anyway - and no paper towels or soap...in the toilets. Because if this we won’t be going back anytime soon and know others who’ve said the same.More

Once you find it, because it is not as shown on the Tripadvisor map - it is actually on Estrada de Sesmarias half way between the water tower and Luisas ! - it is a typical family restaurant with a limited but above average quality...menu at €11 inclusive of couvert, main and dessert. Clentele were locals and ex-pats and the friendly staff all speak excellent English. Wheelchair friendly and both inside and outside tables. They produced a birthday cake for my accountant who was dining at the same time and simply brought spirit bottles and empty glasses out for some thirsty golfers ! After a gap of about 3 years it will not be that long again before I revisit.More

We always call by this bar. They serve a perfect ice cold Super Bock in an freezer chilled glass. Snacks and the daily menu are very reasonable. The place is clean and nice and cool to keep out the sun.

Like so many of these local typically Portuguese café/restaurants off the beaten track you can get bread and olives/pate, a tasty main course with usually 2-3 choices, dessert, wine and coffee for under 10 Euros per person which is great value. Never going to be...gourmet food but it's good honest Portuguese fare and served by friendly and helpful people...highly recommend!More

I don't know if it's possible to get a better value lunch than Jophil's dish of the day. There's no menu here, ask what the dish of the day is, usually two options. For less than €10 (€8.95 I think) I got couvert, (bread, olives,...butter and sardine pate) a main of shredded duck in rice with salad, a pudding, a coffee and a large beer. For those wanting a smaller meal they do chips and toasties. Lunch here is always in my plans when I visit.More
