Everything you would expect in a 1 star Michelin restaurant except the price and the attitude. Wonderful food, beautifully presented with attentive service. The fixed price lunch is a real value, the wine list includes excellent local wines, and the staff delivers it perfectly. It is a small place so be sure to reserve in advance.

We all had the taster menu which is a delight, with the lobster course being simply perfect. The children had a chocolate extravaganza and an ice cream for their desserts and these were works of art as well as being taste sensations! The best thing about the restaurant is Maria who makes the whole place such a relaxed place to be.

We eat here every year, in fact it is one of the reasons we go back to Portugal every year.
My wife says most of the Michelin star restaurants we go to that she could possibly make something similar , but not here it is very special.
Maria is very special and is wonderful describing the amuse bouche , which are lovely.
Going back in September and will be sure to book in for another super meal.

One of the best restaurants in Algarve located in a charming house with it's own parking outside. We had a reservation mixed-up upon arriving - read: the restaurant had somehow lost our reservation! However, the staff was flexible and was able to quickly convert one of their extra table (for decoration with flowers) into an extra dinning table. We were impressed by their willingness and flexibility - it could've otherwise been a very different review with a restaurant losing a reservation ;) The food didn't disappoint either. The tasting menu was of good value with innovative food. We truly enjoyed the evening there and the hospitality. Highly recommended!

Lunch on the terrace is a wonderful setting to enjoy fabulous food with friends. Exceptional value at lunch time with a fixed price menu for high class food with exceptional service. We have had meals at this restaurant on several occasions and have never been let down. If you haven't been here for a meal you don't know what you are missing.
