The chef and waiting team were all very friendly and made extra effort with the kids. The wine waiter made an excellent recommendation after we had ordered our... More

We have enjoyed three wonderful meals here. The service was excellent, as was the food - all four of us ordered different dishes and all were delicious.

Good atmosphere, nice decor. Amazing food, and I would not say that lightly, just could not fault service or food. A little expensive , but you get what you pay for ( on most occasions you don't) but you know what I mean. It was well worth our hard earned cash , the desserts are to die for. 10/10 .... More

Make the effort to search out this restaurant...you won't be disappointed! It is about 10-15 mins drive/taxi ride out of Albufeira heading past the marina and out towards Gale/Salgados. The restaurant doesn't look anything spectacular from the road. It sits on the right hand side of the main road with car park opposite. It sits right on the road and... More

Just had the most amazing meal here. Reviews don't do it justice.... The food was superb. Had scallops to start they were mouth-wateringly good! Black pork for main was so good! Will definitely be back 👍👍
