We visited this restaurant twice during our one week stay as it was so good. In the middle of the golf area near Faro, the food and the service were excellent. The restaurant looked like a large villa at the side of the main road.

A superb space with an outstanding attentive staff that helps you and party to enjoy themselves and their meal. The overall price is not in a budget range but, completely, under what you could expect from this kind of service. I do definitely vouch for...More
