We popped into Monica's on our first evening in VDL. We had been travelling since the early hours so decided for an earlier reservation. We were literally the first people in at 7pm but the quirky nature of the venue along with soft music created a nice atmosphere. The food was very good. I opted for an African fish curry which was filling and full of flavour. The rest of the menu looked good and the prices were very reasonable for the area. The only downside was when I stood up to leave and caught my chair on the cobbled floor and proceeded to knock the entire table over, breaking bottles, glasses and a candle holder. Whoops!

We visited Monica's during our holiday to The Algarve and we found it delightful. Sangria and wine were delicious and the beef wellington was really really good! The staff are great, very attentive without being intrusive. Good value for money also. Go here!

The setting is quirky but the food is excellent. We visited twice during a seven day holiday.
The menu is a mixture of Portuguese and English Gastro Pub - Tapas, Steak & Ale Pie, Beef Wellington, Sticky Toffee Pudding, Bread & Butter Pudding plus much more - all perfectly cooked!
Owner and staff are all very friendly.
Would definitely go back.
