It's been two years since we visited the restaurant. To be honest it was the one place we were looking forward to going back to. We had very fond memories of the previous visits but the return was very disappointing. The food was ok but the charge for 2 adults and 3 very young children was ridiculous. We didn't order... More

The quality here is excellent and the menu is well put together with good seafood choices, meat and chicken. This restaurant is quite famous in the area due to the steak on the stone, it's known as a "the steakhouse", but this is only one of the many choices on the menu, rest assured there is plenty of choice for...

We went into this restaurant as there was very little open in early February but we came out converted to the superb meals and generous portions. We loved it so much that we returned on the next night and the next! This is a friendly restaurant and the food is so good. The chocolate mousse is to die for and... More

We visited again recently and were very surprised to find Carlos is no longer at the restaurant. The new owner would not tell us where Carlos has gone. He told us the cooks were the same and that the menu was unchanged, 'if it ain't broke etc' The meal was good but the steak on a stone looked a little... More

We were very disappointed to hear that this Restaurant had closed, but then told it had reopened with some new staff. Glad to say it is all the same, same menu & good food. Delighted!

Excellent but discrete service. Mediterranean food , clams and squids are fresh and well cooked. Fish fillets are very nice also for small children. Meat dishes on the stone are also a must. Regional dessert with almonds and "alfarroba" are original and different from current desserts in the area.

Went here based on TA reports, we were a group of 6, and after out first meal, we all said we had to return. The place is spotless, linen tablecloths, polished glasses, well turned out staff and clean toilets. Food is well priced for UK guests, and the house wine at 6 euro a bottle. The steak cooked on a...

Vila Nova de Cacela is a little village with some nice restaurants. Sabinos is one of them. Well decorated, good environment, good food. But that's it...no more than normal recipes and just good food. The problem is the price of the dishes. Way too expensive for the location, for the kind of restaurant and for the quality of the food.... More
