The restaurant, the decoration, the staff, the food, the drinks, dessert, the price...everything perfect! Well worth a visit for lunch or dinner. Wide selection of wine, Possibly one of the best restaurants in the Algarve. I strongly recommend it!

We have just had the most lovely evening having dinner here. Dressed crab (sapateira) was offered on arrival as part of the couvert and we gobbled it up immediately - so fresh! We then enjoyed a superb Javali (wild boar stew) and a cockerel casserole (similar to coq au vin, but slightly more rustic), whilst our eldest enjoyed a perfectly... More

We spent two weeks in Paderne in August this year and didn't try this restaurant until the second week. Wished that we had visited earlier. The food and service sre excellent in very comfortable surroundings. We did not find the prices excessive and would recommend visiting here if in the area.

The food was very good for the money, the country soup is a must, but one pot will do 4 people. The monkfish kebab was very good, and the fish selection looked superb. All in all great value for money

We have been there at a Friday night. Full house it was. However one hour and a half waiting is too much. The price was higher than expected. About the food itself, its well done.

Beautiful setting, great food and caters for kids. Also, excellent wine selection (was pregnant on this visit so was a little miffed I couldn't indulge). However, when we return to the Algarve next year we will most likely make the trip to return for another evening meal.

Great food, good value and well stocked wine shop. Also perfect for a drink and had a great little kids playground to let the kids run riot while you eat and have a drink. Highly recommended

We had such a great experience eating dinner here. Their seafood was excellent. I had grilled squid while my husband had grilled seabass. Hope to come back in the future.
