“Excellent food”
Reviewed 25 July 2014

We chose this after reading about it on trip advisor.
A beautiful old restaurant just outside Almancil.
The staff are attentive and the food choice excellent although wines are pricey with their cheapest bottle of red 45 euros.
The food is presented in very different and interesting ways.
Well worth the visit but take some extra cash!

“Shockingly rude!”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

I am told the food here is sometimes very good, however if you prefer your fine dinning experience to include basic good manners, especially from the owner, this is NOT the restaurant for you.

“very disappointing”
Reviewed 23 June 2014

My companion and i dined here recently and cannot understand how they have a michelin star. While Molecular Gastronomy kits help with presentation and wow factor, we felt, in this restaurant, flavour and variety of texture were sacrificed. The Amuse Bouche looked pretty on the plate, but the three spheres were dried out and lacked flavour, the shot of cauliflour soup was nice enough, but they overdid the foam. In fact, almost every dish came with foam, my companion's steak was just ordinary and while my scallops were cooked well, once again they were covered in foam and topped with more mini, tasteless spheres. We did not bother with dessert as we felt we would just be in for another disappointment. We will not be returning here as there are too many other good options in this area.

“a lovely lunch”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

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.

“Amazing ”
Reviewed 3 June 2014 via mobile

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.
