Every time we stay on the Lagarve we make a point of eating here (at least once)
We have never had any reason to complain and we have worked our way through the menu.
Local and visitors eat here and queuing is not uncommon.
Not expensive
Friendly staff with good service. You are not rushed even if there is a queue
Looking forward to the next visit , Yum Yum

We arrived very late 10.30 pm but we have been welcomed warmly by the staff and owner. You can't go wrong with a nice plate of squid a la portuguese and grilled fish of the day... the chips were outstanding. Nice white wine and plenty of good recommendations for the morning breakfast + digestif on the house...
nb: remember that portugese style means olive oil, garlic (a lot of garlic) and salt.

This place was buzzing but still the service was good, and the fish kebabs were huge and great value. One of our favourite restaurants. Booking advisable unless you are early.
