Great, great traditional restaurant in the centre of Monchique. It's very difficult to navigate your car through the narrow streets, so park down by the firestation and walk the rest of the way up to avoid the stress of finding a place to park right...More

When you tire of the endless costal fish you must try the "Assado de porco preto" and the local black pudding "morcilla" fantastic and really good value!

We enjoyed a lovely dinner here - can recommend the black pork which was tender and tasty. Not a cheap evening but well worth the extra euros.
