70 mins each way on bus from Albufeira and 10 euro return plus 30 minute walk up to restaurant from Amancil - still well worth it. Alternative is to get train which is quicker and shorter walk up the hill. Well worth michelin star at 18 euro for two courses plus a few extras - portion sizes not small either.... More

The lunch menu of 2 courses for 18 euros was amazing! because with all the amuse bouches and other little extras, we felt we had had a leisurely, long and luxurious meal. The staff were wonderful - attentive without being pushy; the view to the coast was nice; the porcelain was a delight to eat from; and the food itself... More

Ate at this charming restaurant this week with a group of girlfriends . There is a special lunch menu, two courses for 18 euro. It was memorable, and I have told everyone! I eat out far too much, usually a huge expensive disappointment. My faith has been restored, amazing food at an amazing price at lunchtime. It's perfect for special... More

We were there on a cold wet February evening but warmed by the friendly greeting and open fire. The food from start to finish was fantastic as was the service. The lobster especially was so flavoursome and the sauce with the beef exquisite.

What a fabulous place to eat! The food was not only beautiful to look at but sheer heaven to eat. Excellent staff, efficient and professional. All aspects of the meal were met with surprise and excellence. From the first course to the last, with well recommended wine, cannot praise this restaurant enough, the decor and rest rooms were to the... More

This is a very lovely restaurant. The environment is very nice. The view of village and sea is amazing. The service is very good. There are different staff taking care of drink menu and food menu. All are very attentive. We also met the chef at the end of the meal. The food is also very nice, emphasising the original... More

We visited with friends for lunch. It was a big disappointing experience. We don't understand that they have a Michelin star. It is impossible that the chef or his sous chef were preparing the food. Any average Portuguese restaurant will serve a better meal. Only positive thing to say, staff was very friendly.

Heard tell of this fantastic little restaurant, and with an evening free decided to give it a try. It truly lived up to all the reviews I have seen of it. Absolute taste sensations, in small portions, which meant there was enough room to taste everything!! From the warm bread rolls with home-made pate to start, through the starters, tasting... More
