I frequent a number of cheap and cheerful restaurants in the Algarve serving authentic Portuguese food but there is also a place for fine dining whilst over there and that place, for me, is the restaurant of Henrique Leis. With a tricky entrance off the...More

The whole evening was a delight. Great food, exquisitely presented and cooked to perfection. The staff could not have been more courteous and attentive. Yes, the prices are high, but quality comes at a price. Compared to some so called 5* hotel restaurants in the...More

We’ve been to Henrique Leis, for lunch, on any number of occasions over the years and were recently treated to a dinner date there. We were fortunate enough to hit a beautiful evening so were able to eat outside on the verandah, as the sun...More

Interesting location. Beautiful but noisy if you are sitting outside (cars on the main road). Excellent service, fancy food not so fancy taste. Poor sommelier service. Not sure about the Michelin star.
