Had a great night with friends at wine tasting. 5 courses with matched wines served to a completely full restaurant with superb service. Only complaint was not to get easier opportunity to buy the wines. Hardly a complaint! By the way food and wines were very good. This just shows how new enthusiastic management can transform a dud restaurant. Just... More

Once again Monica Louis hosted a perfect evening, from the warm welcome, excellent house wine and the menu that catered for all tastes. Pork Wellington superb. All at reasonable prices. It was obvious from the comments of all the other guests that Monica's will soon become a favourite amongst locals and tourists alike.

Having read the tripadvisor reviews we decide to give Monicas a try and am I glad we did!! From the warm welcome on arrival, though the main course to the deserts the experience was one of the best I can remember in 10years coming to the Algarve. You can't make a mistake from the menu with both the fish and... More

Monica's is a really lovely resturant run by Luis and Monica. It's the new name of Tino's resturant. We have eaten here 4 or 5 times and have always had a great time. I can't recommend it enough as a friendly place to go for a relaxing meal with great atmosphere. Highly recommended.

Monica's in the old Tinos just at the top of Val Do Lobo is well placed to become a popular local favourite. The cheerful efficient service coupled with a short but interesting menu leads to a relaxing and satisfying evening. Bearing in mind the proximity to more expensive alternatives this is fantastic value for money. Don't expect the poshest of... More

Wish we had found this earlier in the week as we would have been seriously tempted to come back again and again. The food and service were excellent and the atmosphere relaxed and friendly. The menu was limited but every thing was tempting and no one was disappointed. Also any place that does prosecco sangria is on my favourite list... More
