“Don't let looks deceive you”
Reviewed 22 April 2014

Looks like a lovely restaurant, but the smell of the fish cabinet should have warned us that something wasn't quite right. In the end I had a steak which looked and tasted more like a scrap of pork, very disappointing

“Traditional Portugese food and exceptional waiting service.”
Reviewed 20 November 2013

We ate here on several occasions at lunchtime during our recent stay in Quarteira and thoroughly enjoyed the experience each time. Located directly on the promenade with lovely views out to sea it is the most relaxing locating you could want in which to enjoy a meal.
It was not overly busy at lunchtimes which made it even more of an enjoyable experience with the single waiter on duty ( Staz the cray football fan from the Ukranie ) well able to cater to all the needs of the customers who were present on the 5/6 times we visited.
Food is mainly Portugese in style, the Lamb chops with homemade mint sauce were just delicious and come highly recommended. There is also a very nicePatisserie attached to the restaurant which is ideal for mid-morning coffee and a delicious baked on the premises pastry.
Retaurant appeared to have very high standards, all the polished floor surfaces and glass doors/windows were blemish free and gleaming. Prices were very reasonable and the house wine was very good compared to some that I have experienced and it was not a small glass either,attentive and super efficient service, quality food at a reasonable price in a lovely setting make this restaurant one not to miss.
PS; If you enjoy an Irish coffee from time to time this is the place to go, the young lunchtime waiter, Staz, makes an exceptional Irish coffee.

“Love this place!”
Reviewed 10 November 2013

My wife and I went to this restaurant 3 times during our stay in Quarteira in October, twice for dinner & once for drinks. The 1st time we went (for my birthday) I had the lamb cutlets with mint sauce & my wife had the mixed grill kebab. All I can say was the food was absolutely divine. The lamb was cooked to perfection, I wasn't asked how I liked it but it was cooked perfectly. The mixed grill was also done to perfection. Both meals was served with chips & salad which tasted good. The waiters were very attentive & made sure you felt welcome. The decor inside was very light, pictures on the wall of how Quarteira looked in the olden days. The cakes were also very nice, very moreish! The prices are very reasonable & I certainly wasn't complaining about paying 8 Euros for a litre jug of wine....you'd pay that for a small glass at other places! So all in all I'd definitely recommend visiting this restaurant if you're in the Quarteira area.

“Great staff, Lovely food”
Reviewed 4 November 2013

We returned to this restaurant having eaten here twice before on previous holidays. The service is friendly and the food is cooked fresh from scratch so be prepared from a little wait for main courses. At this time of the year, it is very popular with locals for lunch and less busy in the evening so you may find some menu items are not available in the evening. However they are more than happy to suggest an alternative and we had a great meal at very reasonable prices.

Desserts are delicious as they have a small patisserie attached next door and you can choose what you like from the display, again at very reasonable prices.

Prices in Quarteria are very reasonable compared to the more flashy Vilamoura and this restaurant is well worth a visit

“Superb Salads”
Reviewed 12 October 2013

Food was superb and reasonably priced.
Ambience was chilled and understated - local music and no shiny neon in sight, with views out to sea...
