Great place. I have been already 4 times at this restaurant since its opening on the 7th of July 2007. The quality has always been top notch - so far I've never had a bad surprise ordering from the (long) menu of Portuguese specialties.

The Algarve Restaurant has a real friendly feel to it - always fairly busy and the owner is a real gem. There's a good mix of families, big tables, and a few people drinking at the bar.

For food - there really a lot to choose from. I suggest Cataplana (Algarve speciality) - with a choice of seafood, fish or meats cooked on a pan beautifully crafted in copper. Desserts are all homemade and are delicious.

Bottom line - great food, friendly service, terrific value.

Went there last Thursday after it recently opened and was really impressed. The staff were so charming and within minutes of sitting down we were given complimentary hot bread, pates and a delicious cheese. The sea bass was absolutely divine, and so fresh. the house wine was delicious and the bill a very acceptable £40 for two. Highly recommended.

My wife and I enjoyed an excellent lunch at the Algarve restaurant in Trinity Road, Wandsworth (opposite the County Arms and the top of Magdalen Road) on Sunday, 19 August 2007. Everything is Portuguese-flavoured from the typical blue painted tiles to the menu and the wine list, not forgetting the outstandingly friendly, helpful owner and his family. We started with appetite-whetting fresh tomato bread with olives and goat's cheese, followed by the house speciality, Cataplanas, traditional Portuguese stew cooked and served in a splendid copper pan -- we chose the mixed shell-fish stew, and we shall definitely return for the mixed fish, chicken and seafood, and mixed meat variations on the Cataplanas theme. At £32 for two this was excellent value, a wonderful, lavish and tasty meal in itself, long to be remembered. The Estaç ão de Douro white wine from the Douro river area of Portugal (where we spent last Christmas on a delightful river cruise) was another bargain at £12.50 -- crisp, fruity, chilled to perfection (not half-frozen as so often in lesser establishments), and dry as a bone, perfect for sea-food (or indeed for just about anything else). Service was prompt, friendly and efficient. The whole meal, including the wine, service and good coffee to finish, came to just under £60 for the two of us, a snip.

After only six weeks in operation and spanking new with all new modern furniture and decor, the restaurant has imaginative plans for set-price wine-tasting evenings (to include a prix fixe dinner), musical evenings, and a take-out service for the area to include delivery, and collection for all washing-up! This is a gem of a place which deserves to succeed. Give it a try! It's open every evening and from 12 noon at week-ends: 020 8875 0313. No, I don't have shares in it and I'm not being paid to write this....
