Always a warm welcome and my favourite outside eating space in the Algarve. Lovely pre drinks area for small groups and couples. The place is always spotless and think a number of family members working together here, certainly Father and Daughter. Standards always very high and really nice wine list not to break the bank. Good suggestions on pairing with... More

We have been coming to this restaurant for 20 years. The food is consistently good and the gardens and terrace beautiful. We celebrated our sons 21st birthday there last summer, so special.

Nice restaurant in winter and always friendly service. However menu is a bit staid and needs refreshing. And over priced. However always busy so must be keeping customers happy.

Lovely meal but service very patchy for such an expensive restaurant. Served my own wine and water twice while waiters chatted at other tables or walked past us. Waited 10 minutes for desert menus and then never asked us what we wanted. Drank our wine then never asked if we wanted any more?!

We hadn't been for eight years despite passing it loads of times when the car park was always full. It is still really good actually better than that. Ambience was great and the service excellent and food terrific.
