We were in the local supermarket when the man behind us at the cash out, gave my wife a business card for this restaurant.We thought that we would try it for lunch. If you want a posh restaurant, with a long menu and even longer wine list, go somewhere else. This is a small local bar/restaurant, catering for working folk... More

My husband and I ate at this restaurant on Sunday evening. The outside of the restaurant is deceiving in that it looks like a little bar cafe. But go through the bar and into a big restaurant. The staff is very friendly and eager to please. There was a nice buffet spread which my husband chose to eat from. I... More

The interior of the restaurant is simple, wooden benches and tables. The host is very friendly and has a lot of humor. He runs the place together with his wife, who is the cook. My wife and I had a mixed salad and an octopus salad as a starter, which proved to be a meal in itself. We had fish... More

We were seating next to people that were also staying at the same B&B so we had a great evening. They had ordered the same dish but one each. We laughed!!! Food was excellent and very... More

Very good local food, fish and meat diary menus with excelent prices. At Sundays the food it's a litle bit different, more elaborated with country flavours. Decoration as a typical "Tasca Portuguesa" and nice people. Recommend it

While the food is great and prices excellent, the main attraction for us was the local singers. Advertised as a Fado singer , she was wonderful but also highly entertaining were the exceptional spontaneous local singers . Both staff & diners were up dancing while delicious food & wine were still being served. We have been on hols in Algarve... More

This restaurant is a quick drive from the main tourist areas (Eg Portimão), but well worth it. Don't be fooled by the extrior! Its has a very personal touch, great food and very affordable! ITs popular with a lot of locals and gets busier after 9pm. An extra bonus is that - unlike so many restaurants - their desserts are... More
