we have been going here for many years and most of the time the food and reception has been good, unfortunately the owner Aurelio has had a heart attack recently, shame as he a lovely man, but our last meal was not as good as the previous visits, i hope it will remain as a good budget restaurant as we...

When I asked a local where I should go to enjoy piri-piri chicken I was directed to Aurelio's - a favourite restaurant of her family's. She gave great advice, The welcome was warm, the surroundings spotlessly clean and cheerful, and the chicken masterful. Although the meal was simple: chicken, french fries and salad - each of the dishes came either... More

The chicken Piri Piri is the best in Guia, and possibly the Algarve. The Bife a Portuguesa is outstanding. Highly recommend it to anyone.

This is our favourite place to eat in the Algarve. The piri piri chicken is the best we have ever tasted, the staff are friendly and attentative and Aurelio is an excellent host. We have been visiting for over 20years and will continue to do so. If you visit the Algarve make sure you don't miss this Gem!

We have been enjoying meals with Aurelio for many years. We always order chicken piri piri, it's the best ever! The staff are very friendly and the food is top notch every time. We recommend it to everyone who is visiting the area.

Ate here twice on our holiday to Guia, the Piri piri chicken is great and flavorful, and other food we saw being served looked fabulous! The service is very welcoming with the waiter adding little extra touches like the little hot chorico sausage and shots after we'd paid the bill! Portion sizes of frango Piri Piri are small, but the... More

We had a simple meal of soup,Chicken Piri-Piri a mixed omelette and home made desserts. It was excellent in quality and presentation although we would have liked our soup a little warmer. (I'm sure we could have done if we had asked.) Waiters made us feel like 'old' customers and frequently checked if we were satisfied with the food.

If you want to eat the best authentic Portuguese food in the Algarve, look where the locals are eating. Aurelio's is a family run restaurant, where the chicken is always freshly prepared and just the right amount of heat, with plenty of flavour. Fresh chips, salads, homemade desserts, always a friendly smile and excellent value. We have been eating at... More

We went just to try the piri piri chicken - very tasty though bones and skin not to all our familiy's taste. Authentic trafitional puddings well worth it too. Very friendly helpful staff helped us navigate the menu

Been here many times, the menu never changes nor does the friendly welcome and basic Portuguese food, no frills but good value for money, especially popular with the locals.
