Reviewed 2 April 2018

Ordered 2 drinks before supper and then the meals. Kept waiting for drinks to arrive but my wife's food came. We wanted drinks first as should be expected. They admitted to FORGETTING our drinks. Food was great but by then it was less desirable due to the aforementioned drinks debacle. Won't go back....

I saw the choice of grilled fish on the menu and decided to try some. I chose the Algarve Tuna. It was served on two plates on full of vegetables and the other with a huge piece of tuna dressed in a wet vegetable sauce. The quantity of food would have fed two people but the taste was dull, the tuna over cooked and the vegetables were blanned. My wife had Piri piri chicken which was also served on two plates. The chicken had no Piri piri flavour, was greased and mostly bone... but it did come with a bottle of piri Piri sauce. These guys play on quantity over quality, and it's all rubbish.
Service was terrible too. Had to wait ages for them to over cook the food and they appeared shocked when we wanted to leave. We saw another couple decide that they weren't waiting one got up and come to the door to force them to serve the bill.

A good place to stop for lunch. The fish and chicken are barbecued which give them a nice tasty flavour. You can add the piri-piri sauce to the chicken yourself if you like. The lunch menu has a good selection of dishes for the same price. The staff is friendly.

My wife and I went to this restaurant 5 nights in a row. The chicken piri piri was fabulous. If you like seafood we recommend the seafood cataplana and or the seafood risotto which were both enough food for 4 people, filled with shrimp, crab, mussels, clams and lobster. We also had the pork chops with a full plate of salad and french fries (chips). They always brought us bread and a plate of olives before the main course. The wait staff were very friendly including Juan De La Cruz and the owner's son David treated us like royalty. We met many people there who were also repeat customers including Portuguese, British and French.

If you are looking for a very good restaurant with great food at a reasonable price and wonderful service, this is the place to go.

We eat here last night, we have been before they offer very good value for money with simple food cooked well.
I had a tee bone steak and my wife and the swordfish.
Both meals were enormous and far more than we could eat, both came on two separate plates.
Steak on one plate chips and salad on another , the food is cooked over charcoal and tastes so good. Don't eat lunch if you are going here for dinner.
The staff are friendly and look after you with normal Portuges charm.
