This is not one of your posh pubs or restaurants but more like a little beach bar that's not on the beach!

Although the setting is at a cross roads with plenty traffic passing by the inside of this little bar was very friendly and welcoming. The owners are local people and cook an excellent chicken piri piri. There were six of us visited this little bar and each had different meals. All the food was cooked freshly for us which meant that we had to wait for our meals but they were well worth waiting for. The food was excellent.

For the last 3 years we have visited Jose& Manuel,the brothers who run the Calipto.
The food is always delicious,and at least 25-30% cheaper than anywhere nearby,try their crepes!!
It`s no wonder the place is always frequented by the locals!
Last time,we called every day,either for a snack during the day or an evening meal,and we called every night for a few drinks.
If you are looking for a swish resturant with fancy decor and exagerated pricing-avoid it.
However,If you like good food ,reasonable priced and served by two very friendly brothers give it a try!! I whole heartly recommend it !!

A tip when in Portugal - look and see where the locals eat - this will mean it is good value and good food. The decor is not fancy like tourist restaurants, but you get good food, service and a relaxed atmosphere. We ate here four out of our seven nights, and paid on average 25 euros for two meals (big portions, fabulous fresh fish and meat), a bottle of wine and usually one beer.

We came upon this snack bar whilst walking to the strip. Then ate here every morning for breakfast lol.

Breakfasts were reasonably prices 3.50 euros for a small or 7.50 euros for a large breakfast.

Every meal we had was lovely and the bill reasonable never more then 20 euros for 4 people eating with coffee's and juices

the staff were lovely and helpful and always smiling.

Clean and tidy and we always sat outside to eat :)

We came upon this small snack bar by chance and were pleasantly surprised at the level of service. We went for a breakfast and found the food excellent, well prepared, fresh and to our satisfaction. The waiter (Jose) was extraordinarily friendly and gave us some sound advice regarding the beaches and walking tours near the small town of Gale.
The Restaurant was extremely clean with easy access. A great little spot for a good coffee, drink or whatever. We will definitely return in the future.
