    The pictures are outdated and, maybe because of Corona, the atmosphere was not resemble to anything like described.

    A lovely tapas bar and restaurant in a slightly quieter square just behind the main harbor at Vilamoura. Some really good plates, the ribs were sublime as was the jamon. The fries with oregano were fantastic too. And very good value. Recommended

    Very nice tapas, fresh and original creations (e.g. sashimi with passion fruit), good wines! Sad that the service was not good, too long waiting time to be served, the last tapas we cancelled after 40 Minutes (in which we were asked two times what we had ordered). But we think, that this may have occured due to the peak time in high season we have been there All in all it was a very nice meal, nice atmosphere and the food was great!

    We had booked in advance via The Fork and wasn’t sure on arrival as the restaurant was so quiet but sat down at a table and began to go through the menu. Some bread, garlic butter and small chorizo arrived to kick things off which was nice. The menu is mainly tapas so we ordered a number. It did take a while to arrive and whilst we waited the bar opposite provided the musical entertainment. Food arrived which was Sautéed prawns, ribs and chicken wings, green salad and rice, plus fries. Fries were a little cold but I didnt grumble as we had a 30% discount already. We ordered a second round of ribs and wings. Food was lovely and having read about the deserts we went for the creamy chocolate cake and passion fruit cheesecake, yum! The restaurant did get busier as the evening went on.

    The food was awesome, each one of six tappas/dish. We had the opportunity to complement the chef that came to our table. Drinks were great too. Desserts were good but didn't shine so bright as the food.

    Lovely decor inside, plus an outside seating area which doesn't stand out from its neighbours. Don't let that put you off though! The kitchen is open-plan and spotless, as are the toilets. The menu is varied and the food is delicious. Also a great wine list. The service is extremely friendly. I'll definitely go back.

    Excellent meal in a restaurant in a surprising place - a top quality offer. A lot of small portion dishes allow to try and taste a serious of different food alternatives - like the fantastic japanese style tuna. We ended sharing a fantastic steak that - despite being a main ciurse meal - came on tyhe same style as the previous food, sliced (which also shows the flexibility of people serving in the restaurant to the clients' needs) Highly recommended
