“worth the walk”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 May 2014

Larangel is not in the centre of Olhos but the meal will be worth the walk or get a taxi. The fish is always so fresh . If its not on the menu its not in season. Again with the meat, the black pork is excellent. the wines are good and the side salad is the best in the area - the tomatoes, onions sliced thinly, the lettuce fresh and the dressing is perfect. A real gem of a place.

“Incredible culinary experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 May 2014

Freshest Stone Bass, deboned from the inside with the most amazing coarse sea salt. Then grilled over hot coals until perfectly cooked. Moist and delicious and in need of no accompanying sauce or butter etc.
The Chef cooks with love and the food shows it.
This was an incredible experience and possibly the best fish I've ever eaten.

If you find yourself in Ohlos D'Agua you must try Restaurante Laranjal

“Extraordinary value, honest food. Just visit!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 April 2014

Exceptional value for the tourist menu. I had flame grilled salmon steak; my husband had pork chops, both well prepared. The food is unpretentious and very good portions. The place is quaint and spotlessly clean with charming service clearly from a family-run business. To cap it all the restaurant is opposite an orange grove so the scent of orange blossom is also wafting around. We enjoyed the walk back to Hotel Falesia accompanied by the evocative sound of cicadas(or crickets; not quite sure). All this for 9.80 euros. Visit. That is all.
