We had dinner at this place in late February 2017 and were incredibly delighted by the friendly staff, nice interior and incredible cuisine. The shrimps for starters and the fillet steak were the most impressive dishes we had, however also the sea bass is well worth a try. Every dish is prepared in a unique way, with extraordinary garnishing, served... More

It is best to book and to remember they do not take cards. Pricier than surrounding restaurants but for that bit of class and a special meal it is well worth it. We both had the sea bass which was beautiful and then a nice dessert followed by coffee and we also had a bottle of wine. The service was... More

The menu offers a wide variety of food: local as well as exotic and the portions are generous. Everything is very fresh and tasty. I recommend the spring rolls and the rack of lamb. The wine list is awesome too! The service is very friendly and attentive.

We wanted to invite a group of German friends to a nice restaurant with Portuguese food and, spot on. We all loved the restaurant and the food. Service was good, and the food presentation awesome for the price we´ve paid. We are definitely going back and totally recommend it.

We have been visiting the algarve for over 20 years enjoying as much fresh fish as we can eat, amazing meat and scrumptious chicken, but just sometimes you just want something a little different, a change. Ysconderijo simple delivers this. The food is eclectic, Michelin style food but with a twist - there is plenty to eat! From the moment... More

As everyone who has been this restaurant is fantastic and very cheap for what you get. Had the tomahawk steak only complaint I couldn't eat it all. Make sure you book, a brilliant asset to Sao Bras
