Always on our list each year for our annual golf trip. Still one of the best restaurants in the Val do Lobo / Quinta do Lago area.

After being greeted by the owner, we entered a room with large kegs, gorgeous furniture, and a warm atmosphere. The waitstaff were attentive and helpful. My filet stroganoff was beautifully presented and tasted delicious. My husband's chicken curry was said to be "the best he's had!"

Felt this restaurant was quite old fashioned, we have eaten outside which we preferred. 4 or 5 large parties in and we felt meal was rushed but food was good.

We went there for a family meal and birthday celebration some time ago. My son opted for the steak done on the BBQ but when it came to the table there was an awful taste of BBQ lighting fuel off it which made him feel quite sick.This was very early in the evening and evidently they were only lighting the...

Always a warm welcome and my favourite outside eating space in the Algarve. Lovely pre drinks area for small groups and couples. The place is always spotless and think a number of family members working together here, certainly Father and Daughter. Standards always very high and really nice wine list not to break the bank. Good suggestions on pairing with... More

Our family of 7 had dinner here, because my daughter and family had been before we were treated warmly and mad a fuss of. The restaurant was busy - we ate inside the outside seating would have been too cold. Apparently it seats around 400, but the service is prompt and the staff are very civil. Th food was excellent...

We have been coming to this restaurant for 20 years. The food is consistently good and the gardens and terrace beautiful. We celebrated our sons 21st birthday there last summer, so special.

I really enjoyed this nice restaurant, excellent food nice attention. I arrived in low season by mountainbike in the evening and the team member helped me straight away to take the bike and he put it in a save place inside. I will definitely return and recommend. On a Thursday evening in January very crowded. The only restaurant open during... More
