We arranged to meet friends for lunch before they returned to England. This was their first visit and they were impressed. The food was very good, especially the Bacalhau a Bras, as was the service. Look forward to our next visit.

Visited with my wife as a treat and we were not disappointed. Food was excellent and they even put together something on the spot for my wife who is vegan. Very impressed!

Party of 3 circular tables. We were looked after very well. Good standard of food. Good wine list. Upmarket, with prices to match. Nice paintings on the walls for purchase. A good quality Algarvian restaurant for the tourist which I am happy to recommend.
