We've been coming to this restaurant for the past 25 years and it remains a gem in a sea of brash new upstarts. Truly Portuguese family run eatery with friendly service and simple but beautifully cooked traditional dishes. Open throughout the year with ample parking just few minutes from the resort areas of Quinta do Lago and Val do Lobo. Try it you wont be disappointed.

We found this restaurant excellent value with top quality food and service. We both had starters of small prawns in piri-piri and main courses of Grilled Sole. I have to say this was the best sole I have had in Portugal, and the bill was extremely reasonable, especially considering the proximity of the upmarket areas of Vale do Lobo and Quinta do Lago. The staff are helpful and friendly. A real gem.

This is one of the best value no nonsense restaurants on the Algarve in the Golden Triangle area.
The food is fresh well prepared and above all a delight.
It may not be gourmet but is the better for that as you get what you want at a reasonable price.
The staff are most pleasant and non intrusive.A good place to dine

Love this place and the staff. We have been coming here for 30 years and have never had a bad meal or poor service. We have seen Tonys children grow up and become part of the staff. The pork and clams cattapalana is the best I've ever had and the steaks and fish are so good that you really don't need anything else to accompany them.

Have eaten here several times over the past five years with friends. But my friends and their family have come here ever since the present owner was a boy, ie some 30+ years. Always willing to comply to customers dietary requirements. A lovely setting, excellent service and perfectly served meals.
