Olhão (Faro), Portugal: Great Atmosphere, Excellent Service, Tasty Food, And Reasonable Prices In Olhão's 'Old Town'

I had no idea this restaurant had opened seven months ago and we live just a few blocks away, so that should tell you how much I have been getting out lately!

The restaurant is modern, bright and cheery, on a back street in the middle of Olhão's "Old Town", so we decided to give them a try and I am glad we did ... HOOAH!
The nice young lady who greeted and seated us was also our server, Amanda, and she did an outstanding job. Her English was good and she was very attentive, helping us navigate the menu.

We started with a nice vinho Duoro (tinto - red, finishing with another, and Couvert for four (bread, olives, seafood pâté, and olive oil and balsamic vinegar. They were all delicious!

I ordered the Picadinho à Manela (€14), strips of chicken breast and cleaned prawns in a curry cream sauce, a large portion coming with two sides (house made chips, salad, or rice) and it was absolutely superb. 
My wife had the Chicken (breast) Stroganoff (€11), my buddy Joe ordered the Sautéed Vegetables with Quinoa (€11), and his lady friend Maria got the Pepper Steak (€14.50), all coming with two sides as well. Everyone raved about the food and service, except for my wife who rightly complained that the stroganoff was a bit too salty. With the bill coming to €90 for the four of us, it was a pretty good deal considering the quality of the food and portion sizes as well as two bottles of wine we lapped up ... A DEFINITE "TravelValue"!

We will return again soon and I will include some photos because the ones I took mysteriously vanished from my Gallery ... OOPS!
