I love this little restaurant and enjoy every visit - although difficult to find, once you do you will not be dissapointed.

The food is extremely authentic and varied including wild boar, black pig and razor clams cooked to perfection. well worth a visit!

As always I am reluctant to share my experiences but the restaurant deserves it. We went with a friend who lives in Vilamoura. As I like to dine in proper Portuguese restaurants when in Portugal he recommended this place.
I was not disappointed, the food and service was excellent.

This restaurant is as authentic as it gets. Typical food from the Algarve. If you drive a few kms out of the tourist area the "real" Portugal awaits you. Love this place!

Massive decent enough steak, great fries... the others had a lamb dish which looked nice and apparently was fine.It was very busy and unfortunately there were some unpleasant folk around (not the restaurants fault, obviously)
It's more quantity than quality in my opinion. Fine, but no great shakes.

If you like traditional Portuguese food then go here. Huge portions with great taste and freshly done. Quiet busy with locals when we were which obviously speaks for itself
