“Another superb restaurant!”
Reviewed 12 August 2014 via mobile

We have 4 favourite restaurants in Olhas de Agua and this is one of them! The steak on the stone was incredible, so delicious we're going back this evening, the service faultless (unlike some we'd been too) and a great atmosphere!

“A hidden gem - brilliant food & hospitality!”
Reviewed 11 August 2014 via mobile

We found this hidden gem during our holiday in july 2014. Once we experienced what o manuel's had to offer then
nothing else could compare. Fab fresh food & wine. The most fantastic chicken pri pri and home cut chips we have ever eaten (we are experts on home cut chips & these were the best ever!). Hospitality lovely...traditional portugese ambiance ...very homely experience. We just loved o manuel so much we gave up looking for some where better and just stayed there to avoid disappointment!!
Our advice to owner - better signage needed as you would easily pass it by or miss it from the road if you did not look for it. We look forward to going back sometime.

“Top Class Steaks”
Reviewed 7 August 2014

We visited here for the Steak on the stone - which the two men had. The two girls got fillet steaks with pepper sauce. I regret not getting the steak on the stone as it was so tasty and was consistently hot. Saying that all the steaks were amazing. The steak on the stone came with chips, veg, garlic oil and pepper sauce. It was an exciting experience cooking and seasoning your own steak as you eat and it was good even for heating the chips as we were outside and the food did cool down quicker. I had ordered the garlic mushrooms to start but did not like them as they appeared to be boiled and tasteless. The reason I am still giving them 5 is because they noticed I didn't eat them and took them off the bill which they didn't have to do. Service was great and friendly - would definitely return for steak on a stone!

“Great family place”
Reviewed 3 August 2014 via mobile

Came to this place as was highly rated in tripadvisor and must say the ratings are warranted. Good Portuguese food, great cod, didn't have the steak in the stone but looked great. Service is very nice, quality is good, patio has a nice, simple setting. If you're looking for a no thrils family dinner this place is great. We paid €4, 2+1 child with half bottle wine, no desert. Great value!
