We visited on a Sunday after following the route on Google maps. It's a bit off the beaten track, but well worth finding. It was busy with locals, and the restaurant is one side with the take away next door. We had piri piri chicken served with rice, and we ordered a salad between us. We also had the cover,... More

This place had the best piri chicken. They also do garlic and lemon sauce which is amazing! We always get take away and it's always always great!! Definitely worth a visit x

I've spent many an evening at the Rei Du Churrasco. This visit I noticed such a difference that I asked if the ownership had changed. It has. I believe a nephew has taken over. Before it was very basic with excellent food now the staff must have been trained at a five star hotel very attentive. Lovely salad and the... More

Excellent service, very friendly welcome, barbecue chicken and real piri piri sauce if you want it. Highly recommend a visit, excellent menu but we went for the chicken. Really good sized portions and excellent value for money.

I don't know how many times I've come here for barbequed chicken with piri-piri sauce and rice take-out. At less than 4€, it's one of the better deals around. The chicken is done over real charcoal and tastes amazing.

A firm family favourite, so good that we normally get takeout twice each time we holiday in Vilamoura. Recommend the Beef kebab (estepada)' polenta chips and garlic bread. Super cheap prices too. A must visit.

We visited this place on our first night and ended up going back again on our last night. Food and service was superb and family friendly like most Portuguese restaurants. Will be going straight back here next year on or annual visit to the algarve.

This is a great place for a good value local style dinner. We had half bbq chicken and the meat skewers with chips and salad which are all fantastic. Staff all super helpful - we tried to order more than we needed and were advise what was sufficient - they were right of course. It's air conditioned and they have... More

Just had our first take out from here. The first of many I think. Chicken mouth-wateringly succulent!!! Best I've had for a long while. Will definitely return to try some of the other items from their menu.

Great helpful staff. Big portions of food with the chicken being incredible. A few more options for starters would be nice but a great cheap restaurant overall
