This is a great restaurant on the road from Almancil to Loule. It was quiet midweek but didn't suffer from that. The decor is old Portuguese wood and you can hear the kitchen in the background. The waiter is the chef's cousin and his mother is in the kitchen too so it's family. Our food was just excellent in all... More

Traditional food with a modern twist and fantastic presentation. Best combination of flavors i ever tasted in this type of food. The staff is very friendly and will make you feel welcomed. If you are around Almancil area it is a place to visit for sure.

Can not think why we waited so long to return to this restaurant. Really quite plain and not too obvious but when you find it what a surprise. Great reception and food well cooked and beautifully presented. Put this on your must visit venue

What an absolute gem. Small traditional dinning room, professional and friendly service especially as we do not speak Portugese. 3 options that vary from day to day. When we visited there was the option of fish with a savoury garlic and coriander bread pudding, roasted pork and Turkey kebab. The fish with a bread pudding was the most traditional and... More

Wow! I'd be happy to give this very cosy restaurant with its fabulous fresh food 10 stars if I could! The ambience of this restaurant in the hills above Almancil is perfect and the views which extend from Faro and Faro Island, above Amancil and Quinta da Lago as far as Vale do Lobo are stunning especially after a sunny...

When you enter this restaurant you will feel well. During the summer time you can have a nice view to the city center. In winter or spring you can get problems when you sit next to the window. You will feel cold because the windows are of cheap quality and not isolated. Wind and cold temperature will find your neck... More

Was taken to this restaurant by friends. Very quiet when we went in but what a lovely welcome from the waiter. Our friends said we didn't want the covert so we went for staters and main.
