Off the beaten track, but a lovely drive from Tavira to the restaurant. This place delivers exactly what most reviews promise. Fabulous location. No menus, just eat what you're served. And all great (Portuguese) food. Three main (meat) courses. We had lunch with a bottle...More

We have dined here five times now and have taken close family there too. Anna never fails to deliver on quality, quantity and value. How she manages to run the place virtually single handed I don't know. Lots of experience I guess. It is advisable...More
