Lovely place. Rustic authentic restaurant off the beaten tourist track in Budens. Fabulous host, Thiago and service. Superb fillet steak served on a hot stone with prawns. Lovely family restaurant, 2nd generation. 25 years in a very small place - that says it all!

Our children have been asking us for 3 weeks when will we see Tiago! So, if you are in the area and... More

We enjoyed two lovely meals in this local restaurant last week. It was a perfect find in the small village of Budens. A great host, very attentive service, great value and superb cooking with a real home touch. Would thoroughly recommend a visit - you won't be disappointed!

Family run restaurant with good reputation. Never had a poor meal portions are large for some choices. Everything freshly cooked. Be prepared to give 24 hours notice for certain dishes.

A select band of Liverpudlians assembled here for dinner back in Sept courtesy of Mr & Mrs Lawson and what a night it turned out to be! Wonderful atmosphere, traditional honest food, steaks to die for off hot platters, very quaffable vino, excellent staff (including owner and head chef Mamae) all in all a great night to remember

There aren't many places that my whole family like to go to, but O Tiago is a firm favourite with both kids & both adults in our family of four! Great menu, attentive service and reasonable prices. What's not to like! And the sizzling platters are to die for!!!

We visited Tiago's in the summer on our first holiday to the Algarve. The owner looked after the villa we we're staying at so on meeting him we promised to go to his restaurant. (He wasn't giving us the hard sell here!). The food is honest Portuguese food in large portions and was absolutely delicious. I had the monkfish which... More
