The Cockerel Country Kitchen

Reviewed By AlexJoan - Glasgow

First visit to the restaurant and the food and service wes excellent . I would recommend you book to save disappointment . The restaurant is quite small and packed out with people waiting for tables . Steak pie and the baby back ribs was fantastic but portions could have been smaller with no complaints .

Highly recommended by the concierge and staff at the Pinecliffs, we tried this restaurant on a Saturday evening before Easter. Was a great recommendation, nothing to fault about the restaurant - food was good, welcome and service full of warmth and attention, nothing too much trouble and very reasonable cost. Is a family run place, plenty of locals as well as people on holiday and concentrates on both traditional Portugeuse dishes alongside a good range of sea food and grilled meats. Our starters included a generous portion of melon with parma ham and a really lovely bowl of grilled tiger prawns in a tomato and garlic sauce. Followed up by a cataplana (they offer either seafood, in various options, chicken or other meats) and also a steak served "ticosta", a coffee based sauce. With a bottle of nice red wine, plenty of water and dessert, the cost was less than 100 euros for 4. Lovely atmosphere, a real pleasure to go here and one to return to. Excellent for couples, groups of friends, families.

Chef's Peking

Reviewed By Anna G

The food was disgusting. We ordered vegetable spring rolls, noodles with bean sprouts, ribs and hot soup. The soup was sour. The ribs were covered with batter and tasted like they had been bought frozen and cooked a week ago. The spring rolls were just thick batter and almost no filling. There were just two lousy spring rolls in portion for 3.20€. And the noodles were just blunt. We couldn’t eat anything. When we complained the waitress didn’t even apologize for this disgusting food. And only said that they had been working for 16 years and never had had complaints. With this kind of attitude they charged the whole price for everything. By the way, the wine costed like it was a fancy restaurant. But it was awful. We felt pity for everyone who ate there. We wrote a complaint in the book of complaints. And we hope this place will change their chef, standards and personnel.

Restaurante O Manuel

Reviewed By Fairlie - Glasgow, Scotland

We so looked forward to visiting this restaurant. Sadly, it didn't meet our expectations! The staff were friendly and welcoming. However, for us, the food was lacking! My starter of garlic prawns was fairly average. We both ordered steak on the stone. A decent slab of meat was provided along with vegetables and a sauce on the side. Again, the peppercorn sauce was not to our liking being a little tasteless. My wife had the dessert of chocolate mousse which she didn't enjoy. It was basically like a bowl of chocolate spread and nothing like the texture of homemade mousse. I had a stodgy almond tart which was only mildly better! Our choice to visit this restaurant. Regrettably, we won't be returning.

Overall the Food was good. The garlic prawns were overlooked. Pesto pasta was basic but good and the Pizza was also good, nothing unique or fabulous, but a good meal. Service was very very pleasant and friendly.

Had a meal here on 31/10/2017 which was excellent as always.
Told that the restaurant was closing that night for extended holidays whixh was bad news for us as we are regular visitors to this place.
The majority of other restarants were closed in Olhos for the winter as there were very few holiday makers in resort.

Ambrosia & Nectar

Founded in 1980, this restaurant has dedicated itself and has worked very hard to bring the traditional flavors of Portuguese cuisine to every corner of the world, because we believe that catering is one of the most important factors of tourist loyalty...Come and enjoy traditional cuisine in the heart of Olhos de Agua!probably Best restaurant in the Albufeira,Algarve, No.1 Restaurant with delicious cuisine.

Reviewed By TravellerRowan - Koh Tao, Thailand

when we came to Portugal we were really wanting somewhere that seemed like the sort of place locals would eat......this restaurant is it!
We have been twice (so far) the food is excellent, real quality portugese fayre. And the prices are also excellent (about €1.60 for decent local beer, €8 for half a bottle of wine) and €8.00 for the basic piri piri chicken main course, the mixed kebab was massive and very reasonably priced. The staff are courteous and lovely.
We will be going back before we leave the algarve!!

3 Marias Restaurant

Reviewed By Roberto070now - Dundas, Ontario, Canada

Just a few steps from where we are staying is one of the better restaurants in the area - great fixed price meal which includes the “couverte”, starter (you choose - soup or salad) and the choice of about 10 - 12 main courses, ranging from fish to piri-piri chicken PLUS dessert PLUS a half-bottle of wine...all for Euros 12.50.....Excellent value
Staff was accommodating as our group got larger.
Noise level from the bar, etc. Was a bit high.
Service was excellent.

O'Licorne

Reviewed By SarahR06 - Wales

We went as a group of 5 to this restaurant after seeing the reviews on here and we were not disappointed.
We were greeted by the very friendly owner who was happy to provide a mixed starter for us and cater for a vegan which was a very refreshing change from most of the restaurants in Olhos de Agua!
We had a few different curries brought to the table, with chicken and lamb and chickpeas. Some naan and different types of rice. My family loved each and every dish we had.
I had a chickpea curry which was THE BEST curry I have ever eaten including all of the meat curries I previously loved before becoming a vegan. Mushroom rice was amazing and the chapatis were divine.
Honestly, you will not be disappointed if you eat here.
If we ever return to Olhos de Agua we will eat here again without a shadow of a doubt.
