Description: On March 30th, 1995 São Domingos restaurant was born in Galé, Albufeira.Domingos Almeida had the dream of having a restaurant and Maria da Conceição accompanied him on this project of a lifetime.They bought a plot ofland for 2,000€ (a small fortune in April 1980) and with great effort built a house for the family.In their family home, a villa with swimming pool, this adventure began. They started by adapting the garage but quickly becames too small for the lovers of good food in this new restaurant.After the garage, the restaurant has expanded to the living room of the villa and other spaces until only remain the bedrooms.Currently the restaurant São Domingos has four rooms, one private, and one terrace to enjoy, with all conditions, the fine dishes of this cuisine of knowledge and passion.Although no longer a family house, São Domingos became the "home" for many visitors of this Algarve area, which recognize a familiar space in this restaurant where cameback again and again, is always a joy, pleasure and satisfaction of taste.In the last decade, Rafael, the eldest son of the couple São e Domingos, has contributed with their talent and wisdom, so that the restaurant of his parents is one of the best in the Algarve.

This restaurant is a real treat. Definitely not your average restaurant. We ate fish and it was excellent. The service was friendly and professional.

After not visiting this restaurant for 15 years, we returned to it to find it had been extended and have to say we have not enjoyed a meal like it anywhere else for a long time. We arrived at 18.30 after booking a table, the staff were very attentive, the restaurant is one of the cleanest we have ever visited and the food was excellent from start to finish hence the 5 star review.We have already booked again before we return home.

We found out about this restaurant on trip advisor and were very impressed. The meal was delicious and there was so much choice! Huge range of puddings to choose from- all superb. We went there with a young baby and the service was great. Would definitely recommend it.

This was the first time we had tried this restaurant and we loved it.
We hadn't made a reservation but we visited in October and quite early at 7pm so they managed to fit us in. Others who arrived later had to wait a while so probably best to book.
They had a specials board outside with fresh fish and a Sunday roast and they were both delicious. My son had veal and said it was equally good.
They were very busy and so service was a bit slow but not too bad and the staff were very friendly and apologetic for the wait so it wasn't a problem.
we had three covers, three mains and three puddings and drinks and the bill came to 69 euros which was very reasonable for the quality of food.
Great Portuguese dining- we will be back without a doubt.
