“Opening Times”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 February 2012

Yes, there are now two restaurants quite close to one another and a shop on the main road in Almancil where you can buy all of the various steaks on offer, frozen. However, in common with many restaurants in the area, they close for the winter and probably hold the record for the longest closure : Closing November Opening April. Do ring to make sure they are open 289355271

“Overall a nice place to dine”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 February 2012

I have been here a few times. Our server was very attentive and described the different steaks on the menu. Yes, it is somewhat pricey, but the quality is good. The service is excellent, even while busy. There was always someone coming by to fill your drink and the waiter came along ever so often to make sure things were alright. The steak was tender, and the food was delicious! Fantastic experience for steak lovers.

“Best meal I have ever had!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 January 2012

Perfect setting and atmosphere with a lovely welcome (from every single waitor), superb service...I described them to my partner as ghosts as they moved around the tables so smoothly and didn't unecessarily interrupt the table, for example, filling up wine glass or putting out new cutlery.
The steak was incredible, and the sides were out of this world...highly recommend the honey glazed veg and creamy mushroom. Do NOT leave without having the hot cholocate mousse for dessert - we shared one between us and it was the perfect ending to a lovely evening.

“Paradise found”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 January 2012

Put simply if you like great steak and wine this is the place for you. Steak from Uruguay in beautiful surroundings. It doesn't get much better than this. The new sister restaurant Parilha Natural promises to be just as good. Enjoy
