“An unexpected pleasure!”
Reviewed 3 August 2012

Very pleasant tables situated by the edge of the large swimming pool (closed from 7pm). This restaurant serves especially nice food, although non of it Portuguese (not even any Portuguese cheese in the Cheese & Biscuits offer on the dessert menu), with style and an eye for presentation. The very nice, large and extremely tender three medallions of beef with peppercorn sauce were superb!

Have been coming to the Algarve and staying around the corner from this restaurant for over 12 years and wished I'd been there before! The current menu is on it's website - well worth a visit!
