As a part resident in the area, we have seen this restaurant through numerous management changes. At last we are back to The Summer Jardim we remember, sitting in the garden enjoying great food and a good glass of wine.
The garden is colourful in choice of decoration, not just the trees and shrubs. Colourful menu too, with Tapas to share to start, interesting main and good puddings. Yes we had a very good meal and enjoyed our evening. There were plenty of families there as well as couples; being in the garden meant no one was on top of each other and it felt relaxed.
Good Luck to the new owners!

We where given this restaurant as a recommendation and what a fantastic recommendation.. The setting and the food was just fantastic all of us(4) had tapas as a shared starter and all of us fought for the ends of the fantastic Tapas. The main courses were demolished and everybody loved them. The service was excellent and the price reasonable. Desserts where to die for!
Highly recommended !

Having eaten here under the previous owners, which was superb, the new owners, Luis and Monica, have the perfect formula for continuing the good reputation. On all our visits they employed the best of customer relations in recalling our drink and food preferences, which was very impressive. Very rare that I would give a top rating for a venue but the Jardim deserves this. My only gripe wo".uld be the décor - they have used, very imaginatively, industrial pallets for the base of seating. A great idea but it looks too industrial, although comfortably covered with cushioning, too "raw". Needs covering up!

We have known this restaurant for many years and years ago it was brilliant- for the last few years it has been a bit iffy but now it is on its way to being a star in Almancil again; We have been twice in the last week and the first time in spite of there being a very large birthday group in the service and food were first rate . We went again a few nights later and were not disappointed- good ambiance , good front of house and great service . I do not dish out stars willy nilly but if I could I would have given 4.5 stars . In our opinion one of the top two restaurants in Almancil and the surrounding area . The rib-eye steak, lamb rack, duck and the cod were tasty and perfectly cooked with nice sized portions leaving room to squeeze in a desert. Next time we are going to try lunch.

We have been coming to this region for 17 years and this is the first time we have visited this restaurant. I understand that it is under new ownership & can only say that it could give many of the established restaurants a run for their money! The setting is beautiful the service excellent and unobtrusive and the food is fantastic! It offers extremely good value for money not cheap but better than some of the other "fine dining" restaurants in the area. We'll worth a visit we will certainly be coming back!
