Pequeno Mundo is in a typical Algarve-style house with a romantic outside courtyard based around a fountain. The international menu shows clear French influence. The food and service is very traditional. Everything was unpretentious and everything was perfectly cooked and beautifully presented. The Chateaubriand with...More

We go at least once a visit to this timeless restaurant. The menu, service and atmosphere never change: and why would they, when everything is so well done. Try to sit outside in summer and at least try the samosas!

Algarve is al fresco dining. Pequeno Mundo is set in a lovely house with tables scattered trough the courtyard and garden. Food couldn't be more traditional from escargots to lightly cooked fish. Everything unpretentious and perfectly cooked and presented. I'm a repeated offender

I have to say they welcome children (as long as they are under control - unfair to disturb other diners), the owner loves children. Whilst my kids aren't vegetarian, they are always happy to make smaller or special dishes... More

The menu comprises mainly recipes of French origin, chef Valentim Carmo, a young man who learned the profession thanks to chef Guy Doré with whom he worked for 25 years. In addition to the French cuisin, Valentim Carmo, born in the cold lands in the north of Portugal, applies those native flavors of the region in his dishes. Pequeno Mundo has been able to attract a constant clientele wishing to find dishes and flavours discovered here when of a gastronomic visit and returns with friends to share again those moments.
