We have a property very near to Domingos and visit whenever we are in Portugal on holiday. We called in on Wednesday evening and had a fantastic meal, as always. The staff are very welcoming and the food first class. I recommend the sea bass and tried the chocolate fondant which was new on the menu fantastic.

A simple atmosphere, with a wonderful menu at a very good price. The selections included fish, great steaks, and a range of Portuguese selections. My filet with Parma and Portuguese seasonings was very tasty. The desert menu included several pages. All of this at very affordable prices.

On March 30th, 1995 São Domingos restaurant was born in Galé, Albufeira.Domingos Almeida had the dream of having a restaurant and Maria da Conceição accompanied him on this project of a lifetime.They bought a plot ofland for 2,000€ (a small fortune in April 1980) and with great effort built a house for the family.In their family home, a villa with swimming pool, this adventure began. They started by adapting the garage but quickly becames too small for the lovers of good food in this new restaurant.After the garage, the restaurant has expanded to the living room of the villa and other spaces until only remain the bedrooms.Currently the restaurant São Domingos has four rooms, one private, and one terrace to enjoy, with all conditions, the fine dishes of this cuisine of knowledge and passion.Although no longer a family house, São Domingos became the "home" for many visitors of this Algarve area, which recognize a familiar space in this restaurant where cameback again and again, is always a joy, pleasure and satisfaction of taste.In the last decade, Rafael, the eldest son of the couple São e Domingos, has contributed with their talent and wisdom, so that the restaurant of his parents is one of the best in the Algarve.
