Our family ate here on our first night staying in Algarve and we weren't disappointed. Try the bitoque (traditional Portuguese steak with an egg on top) and you won't be disappointed either!

Paulos is a warm and friendly restaurant. Staff are great and if it's warm enough, eat outside - we did in the first week of October. No need to book at that time, Cataplana and black pork dishes are fab. Enjoy
