We love Indian spicy curries and we certainly loved our curry at the Spice Cottage. They offer a good selection of different dishes as well as different side orders. I had the curry Madras and my husband had the Vindaloo – both tasted great. The naan bread with cheese and garlic was very tasty too. The portions are generous, so... More

Our group are experienced Indian eaters, so we are normally used to having OK Indian presented to us. Never as good as our local's of course. On arriving, we had been told they had no credit card facilities, so we arrived, cash in pocket. We all started eating our meals, to amazing surprise, would be an understatement. I had the... More

One of the best Indian food I have tasted. We had take-away for my family. Successful dinner. The staff were very friendly, professional and helpful. The restaurant was packed of guest, when we visited. Try this place outside, Burgau.

Following a recommendation we went on the Spice Cottage website, picked what we wanted to eat and telephoned an order for 4. Although it was a bit of a drive from Luz to collect the food it was well worth it. Restaurant owners/staff were friendly and welcoming (an Indian family originally from London) and the food was excellent and not... More

Friends of mine had eaten here a few times, and complimented the food, presentation, excellent service, and now having visited the establishment 11 May 2017, I congratulate the owners in every way for a superb meal.

We're frequent visitors to the Algarve and have been to Spice Cottage many times, the food is always delicious. My girlfriend is Anglo-indian and particularly loves the lamb biryani. I would say it's our favorite Indian restaurant anywhere, not just in Portugal!

With a party of 12, some from the curry centre of Britain and without exception all enjoyed what ever they had. Thank you Nasreen and your colleagues for providing another stomping meal, much appreciated.
