I've spent many a holiday golfing in the Algarve and I love Portuguese food. Every now and then I get an urge for English comfort food. The a joker is the best place without doubt. I had home made steak pie mash potatoes cabbage peas and carrots Sadly I couldn't manage the apple pie and custard.

We could not come to Quarteira without paying a visit or two to the Joker. Warmly welcomed and made to feel at home. Excellent place to relax and enjoy home cooked food.
