This little restaurant is the last one on the road towards Albufeira & we would strongly recommend you take a wee look, believe me it is well worth it! The staff are welcoming, friendly and never fail to make you smile. The food is fabulous, well cooked and very reasonably priced. This was our second visit to the area and we couldn't wait to go back, fish, kebab, chicken and the steak: all first class. Approx €40 for two courses with wine for a couple (including a complementary port before you leave). We'll be back in 2013!!!!!

We stayed on a nearby complex in August and visited the Assador 3 times during our stay and every time the food and service were excellent, we were two families holidaying together so 9 of us in total and nothing was to much trouble for the staff. The kebabs were excellent as was the piri piri chicken and fresh fish cooked on the grill, every meal was washed down with some great local wines.

Very child friendly and kids still go on about the kebabs even now and I would have no hesitation in saying eat here whilst in Olhos.

Applied for a listing for this restaurant as I was amazed it was not on Trip Advisor. Stayed in Balaia Golf for a week in September and this was the first restaurant we came across in Olhos de Agua and boy were we glad. In fact is was so good we visited 4 times in a week. There is an outdoor grill area where you can see the chef cook your food which for me is always a thumbs up. There is a covered outdoor area and a nice indoor seated restaurant. The meals were tried were: The mixed kebab, grilled salmon, tuna, chicken with mushroom sauce and the steak (one of the best i've ever tasted). Also get a complimentary glass of port at the end of the meal which was a delicious end to the evening.

The service is exceptional, staff are very friendly and attentive without being intrusive and the atmosphere always relaxed.

Whilst we dined there we also saw a few returning customers which proves how good it was.

Well, well worth a visit and if I return to the area it will be the restaurant I visit first.

We have been going to the Algarve for 7 years and found this Restaurant last year.We returned this year and were not disappointed. They serve excellent Portuguese food at reasonable prices.The fish is cooked on a grill area at the front of the Restaurant and has excellent flavors.The Staff are very professional and friendly. We had our 2 children with us and they loved going there. We ate in this restaurant 5 nights out of our 2 week stay. It is that good.
