    Great food topped by fantastic service and a friendly atmosphere that you take for granted at the New Fat Frog.. Ricardo and the team do a super job at making you feel welcome and the friends I took there loved the place and want to go back, so that says it all. If you haven’t tried the place yet give it a go you’ll be coming back for more.

    Such a lucky find! Roadside location makes it seem smaller than it is and perhaps innocuous .really friendly,welcoming host. My fish dish was delicious and my husband loved his lamb chops. This industry has had a tough time this summer and great little family places like this need your support.

    Been many times before but this evening I was disappointed. . I asked is the burger plain as that’s how my grandaughter likes it. When it arrived it had onions small bits of peppers in the burger. So my granddaughter didn’t eat it waste of money. I had mushroom cheese gratin when that arrived it wasn’t what as I know mushroom gratin it had vegetables grated mixed up together agin waste of money as I didn’t eat it. To finish the evening it wouldn’t take our cards so we had to pay cash. There was nothing wrong with our cards as when we came out I stopped at cash point and was able to use our card.

    The best sea bass I have had, absolutely delicious. The service was very friendly and efficient offering drinks as soon as we were seated. We weren’t expecting karaoke but it was fun. A really lovely meal out.

    The restaurant wasn’t busy when we went, but it didn’t matter. Wonderful honest food alongside great service provided by a father and daughter. The food was cooked on an open grill in front of us, we chose the fish we wanted. Very simple restaurant but authentic and run by somebody who cares. Half the price of mainstream Quinta Do Lago but just as good, proper value for money. Our only negative was the lighting outside, they need a bit more.

    We had a lovely evening at the New Fat Frog, the food was great and the owner and his family were very welcoming. It was a little hidden gem. I’d highly recommend a visit!

    Great food and hospitality by Ricardo and his team. The music from the live band added to a great family atmosphere. I would throughly recommended both the fresh fish and steak cooked perfectly on the grill.

    From start to finish, an absolutely excellent, welcoming service from Ricardo and his family. To add to that, the food was superb! We sampled both the meat and the fish from the grill and both were delicious. Also, the options from the kids menu were all home-made, which was a welcome change from the usual kid’s menus ????10/10 for food, service and value for money. Will most definitely be back!

    The food was very good, all the dishes we tasted were tasty, the prices are a bite high. The space between tables were accordingly to expected with security measures!

    We had to wait 1 hour before the starters arrived. They were good and if they had been served when they still were hot, we would have been happy. The main course arrived 2 min after finishing the starter. It was OK but a bit to the dry side (chicken piri-piri). Very friendly staff and low the prices.

    We received a warm and friendly welcome, and we followed the waiter's advice on starter and main course, which turned out well for us. Unusual starter and an unusual twist with the main course, which the chef checked with us first! It was a very enjoyable evening and the food was interesting, tasty and well presented.
