We visited with a large group of friends, unannounced. They quickly re-organised tables to accommodate us. The food and wine were great and reasonably priced. The fish, especially, was very fresh and nicely presented. The quality of the Steak on a stone was also very good. We will certainly come again.

We couldn't wait to get back to one of our very favourite restaurants, and we were greeted warmly by Doria, who remembered us from last year. We were not disappointed. The food was wonderful, cooked freshly and served by friendly staff. We went there three times in seven days: sea bass, swordfish, sirloin steak on a hot stone, lamb chops... More

Best meals we had on our trip to the Algarve. Food was amazing from the fresh fish to the spectacular steak on a hot stone. Staff were so welcoming and chatted with us. Great value for a great meal.

Lovely Portugese food served in a pleasant restaurant at the top and quiet end of "the strip". Excellent service. Really enjoyed all of our food including the steak on a stone and grilled sea bass. Would recommend and would definitely return.
