Love this little hidden gem just off the promanade in Quarteria. The daily specials are worth a try. I had the fish with banana and my family had the prawn curry and pork with garlic and wine. All the dishes were tasty and prices are reasonable. Will return in June on my next visit

Maria, Henryk and the whole crew at the Girassol always offer the best food and friendliest service that you'll find in Quarteira. Their varied menu has something for everyone and I always struggle to decide which great dish to have. The cheesy garlic bread and garlic prawns are great starters, but we recently tried a complimentary chicken samosa dish and... More

My wife and I ate hat this place for the first time recently whilst staying locally. We found the food to be very freshly prepared to order and served by very friendly, attentive staff. This is not a huge establishment and lies back off the main promenade but is well worth visiting either for full meals or just snacks. The... More
