I don't know how many times I've come here for barbequed chicken with piri-piri sauce and rice take-out. At less than 4€, it's one of the better deals around. The chicken is done over real charcoal and tastes amazing.

A firm family favourite, so good that we normally get takeout twice each time we holiday in Vilamoura. Recommend the Beef kebab (estepada)' polenta chips and garlic bread. Super cheap prices too. A must visit.

We visited this place on our first night and ended up going back again on our last night. Food and service was superb and family friendly like most Portuguese restaurants. Will be going straight back here next year on or annual visit to the algarve.

This is a great place for a good value local style dinner. We had half bbq chicken and the meat skewers with chips and salad which are all fantastic. Staff all super helpful - we tried to order more than we needed and were advise what was sufficient - they were right of course. It's air conditioned and they have... More

Just had our first take out from here. The first of many I think. Chicken mouth-wateringly succulent!!! Best I've had for a long while. Will definitely return to try some of the other items from their menu.

Great helpful staff. Big portions of food with the chicken being incredible. A few more options for starters would be nice but a great cheap restaurant overall

We were lucky enough to have been introduced to Rei Do Churrasco while on holiday last year, when I think we managed two visits, and the same again this year. Garlic Bread, BBQ Chicken Piri Piri, chips, salad and great wine all for a fair price. Not much "kerb appeal", but don't dismiss it for that, get yourself through the... More

We get take away from here a couple of times a months at least. The chicken is always so juicy and the sauces they serve on the side are gorgeous (the lemon and garlic one is my favourite) They also have a comfortable restaurant

We have visited the O Rei do Churrasco several times in excess of over 20 years although not for a number of years as it's a while since our last Algarve holiday. However once again we were not disappointed. The piri piri sauce is much hotter and better than Nandos and the staff were extremely attentive and polite. Will definitely... More

We have been coming here for years and I'm pleased to say the standard has not dropped at all. The staff are super friendly and recognise us as regular customers. The price makes a mockery of Nandos in England. The peri peri sauce comes in a pot and is potent but very tasty. There were nine of us and we... More
