Really original and good menu. Not easy to find vegetarian options here in the Algarve, so we will definitely come back.The place was full on a Wednesday evening in February, which is a really good sign! I don't advise to go with small kids as it is a small place and the only corridor is used for service. Prices are... More

Fantastic organic menu and wonderful selection of various drinks. The only restaurant in my opinion, in the Algarve worth visiting repeatedly. Chicca is not holding back on portions neither on quality. She also has the best glutenfree bread I ever had, like little, mini loaves of goodness. Everything from starters through desserts are great! The only issue would be knowing... More

If you spend a bit of time in the Algarve, you will become aware that there are a fair number of quality restaurants on offer. Ranging from excellent examples of how to do the local fish (etc.) fare right, to an ever broadening array of international possibilities – these are establishments which take very seriously the quality, preparation and presentation...

Serious about great tasting food ? Then you'll be pleased you found Chicca's ! The best of ingredients, carefully prepared to assure you a great tasting meal. An informal, small(ish) place - where the owner is on hand to (enthusiastically) guide you through a wide variety of dishes, - all of which are likely to delight... *Highly recommended*

Having read about this restaurant on TA we decided to give it a try . Tucked away on a side street , Chicca's is a small restaurant with interesting decor . The welcome was very friendly . The menu is presented on a blackboard at your table. Persuaded by the reviews, I had the tempura prawns - they were huge... More

Too tired from a complex day to make dinner at home with friends, but yet wishing for the comfort and peace it affords, we immediately thought of Chicca's. As has always been the case at this delightful restaurant, every dish is consistently superlative. Choice depends merely on one's mood of the moment. From innovative appealing appetizers, through delicious dinners, to... More
