The food was great here. I was there with a few friends and found that the Manager went out of his way to ensure the food met the criteria of the group. Bearing in mind it was off season he made every effort to accommodate the ridiculous demands of the some of the group. Would recommend to everyone. Thanks you... More

Fantastic food, excellent service, great range of food, catered for all requirements including sea food , vegetarian and items made to request. Super staff and great manager. This made the trip worthwhile particularly as the golf was not that great. Are there for 4 nights out of 4 , that says it all.!!!

I have to say this is one of the best restaurants in Monte Gordo. The food was simply wonderful and so was the owner/chef. Homemade ice cream superb. Food prices are equal to other restaurants in the area. I was served the best meal here. I will be back. The service is genuine but not for those who are in... More

The green and red curries were fantastic, a little bit more expensive than most places in monte gordo but we agreed that it was worth the extra. Would recommend to others.

Got our waffles and crepes here most nights on our holidays - deelicioussss. The boss remembered us from last year - most impressive given the numbers that pass through. Special mention to the French Algerian waitress who was lovely and very friendly. Good luck learning Portuguese.
