Now renamed HelloGoodbye. Open only for lunch but very very good food. We had Sate and then went back the following weekend for Nasi Goreng. Lovely location with walks around the reservoir.

I enjoy my visits to Hello Goodbye very much. The location is fantastic. The staff and the owner are very friendly and provide a warm welcome and the menu offers a very reasonable choice of fare at a reasonable price level. I too was present during the Linda g coffee controversy referenced in prior reviews and I would also like... More

I have been coming to the Algarve for many years and visiting the Hello Goodbye many times. I was present with others when Linda g and her partner was at the hello goodbye restaurant. I have to say I was ashamed to be British. They were bullying the poor waitress over a few cents mistake, I felt I had to... More

A tip for the cook: Your onions were not cut finely enough and not fried gently and slowly. They were large chunks and glassy. After all this is the all important basis for your "boemboe" and can't be done in a rush! Not convinced about how authentic the large amount of celery stick and bacon used in the nassi and... More

Stopped off here for something to eat yesterday - was completely won over by the location above the reservoir and the 5 km road up to it from the N125 in Odiaxere was the nicest stretch of road I cycled in the Algarve. Ok - so the food is a euro or two more than you would pay on the... More

Said if its that much no thanks, bearing in mind the going rate for a coffee is 60 cents to 1euro for both in most other... More

My partner and I returned to Hansel & Gretel's, even after the disappointment of our visit in April. This time, we arrived on a Sunday afternoon, always a busy time in the past. On arrival a waitress came out and told us that the whole place was closed for a private function. We couldn't even get a drink. Now many... More

Visited the former H&G after a hike around the reservoir. Now known as "HelloGoodbye." Was disappointed to see that it changed hands, but happy that a restaurant exists at the location. One needs refreshment after a walk around the lake. Had lunch from a good selection off the menu. Yes, it's not the same as before, but don't the new... More
