“Excellent Restaurant”
Reviewed 22 March 2014

we visit here every time we come over,never had a bad experience in here.when we visited last year in a party of 8 there was a power cut in the village but this did not perturb the owner and staff ithin minutes candles out and carry on dining. excellent food,ambiance and service.having not seen owner for one year we were greeted as old friends.we went back 2 days after power cut having just finished dinner power went out again [not our fault really] but again no dramas within .have promised owner when we visit this year we will bring our own candles and torches [lol] one of the best places to eat in Ferragudo would thoroughly recommend

“Great food and good prices”
Reviewed 2 March 2014

The swordfish kebab was fantastic! We also enjoyed the grilled chicken, rice, french fries and salad. Four of us ate family style. We'll be going back. We had skipped lunch, so we had an early dinner. They open at 5:30, but most people don't eat until much later so we had the place to ourselves for the first part of the meal. The bread from the local bakery arrived a few minutes late that evening but it was well worth the wait since it was fresh and still warm.

“Can't keep away”
Reviewed 16 December 2013

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

“Very welcoming and yummy homie food”
Reviewed 23 November 2013

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.
