“Fabulous”
Reviewed 24 April 2014 via mobile

This little restaurant was recommended to me by locals as being the best restaurant in the Cacela / Manta Rota area

When we entered, the owner and his staff were eating their own dinner, but the owner nonetheless sprang into action and handed us menus in English.

I had clams to start, followed by beef Portuguese style (tender fillet steak with a slice of bacon and a fried egg on top, surrounded by crisps/ potato chips, all in a tasty gravy). My wife had a large chunk of salmon with potatoes and vegetables.

Everything was done to perfection.

The restaurant is tucked away in a side road and is plain inside, with a simple menu, yet is clean and charming.

“Best monkfish or Linguado grelhado”
Reviewed 14 January 2014

We've been here more than twenty times over the years. The experience never disappoints. Its not a fancy restaurant inside but is simple and very clean.
The food is fabulous, the amêijoas (clams) make a perfect starter or grilled gambas.
My favourite is the monkfish kebab, there is really enough for two, but hell its holidays!
Puddings are good and you may get an almond liqueur as a digestif.
We'll be back please God.

“Great local place”
Reviewed 2 October 2013

We were recommended O Pedro by the owner of the guest house we were staying in.

We were lucky to get a table as it was a very popular place.

Having eaten there, you immediately understand why its so popular. Superbly cooked local fresh foods from the sea, eaten in a simple no frills relaxed environment. Its how it should be.

“a must in east algarve”
Reviewed 28 August 2013

A simple local restaurant with top grill of finest sth atlantic fish, at a fair price. Try anchove! Mr. Pedro kind hosting have always exceeded our expectations, as well as his prettiest ucraynianne whose name unforgivingly i forgot.
If you are lucky, Pedro may occasionally invite you for a shot of his 'aguardente medronhos'...
