“The place the locals go”
Reviewed 6 July 2014

What a find! Rui Gamboa is as passionate about every item on his menu and about food in general as any man I have ever met. He is a complete delight. Don't expect luxurious surroundings but do expect friendly staff and great food. Loved it, thank you Rui

“This won't be a local secret for long”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

Simply put this is top notch local cooking!

We ate here twice in the 4 nights that we were free to eat on our own, but saying that we were never less than a group of 8 or 9.
As you sit down the table is ready with fresh breads, Patee, Prawns olives.

We were shortly greated by friendly local staff who could not be more accomadating and we had the head waiter come over to go through the specials of the day of which there were several to choose from.

I had the Rump steak in Garlic after a starter portion of Prawns, as good a steak and Pawn combination as I've ever had the Rib Eye, Lamp chops and any of fish dishes were also a big hit.

“Great Find”
Reviewed 3 June 2014

Went to Gamboas for Dinner last Friday as it was a short drive from my villa. I had fish for main which was great and apple pie with vanilla ice cream for dessert. Friendly efficient service all for a great price. I cannot wait to return.
