Pequeno Mundo, in Almancil, is set in an old villa, serving French cuisine amidst traditional surroundings. The restaurant has an attractive bar area with open fire and in summer has two terraces for al fresco dining, one in the courtyard of the villa and the other at the back facing the villas gardens. The terraces create a fantastic setting for a dinner in the warmer times of year.
Our dinner here was superb from start to finish, pan fried foie gras as a starter and then we shared the chateaubriande with garlic potatoes and green beans, which proved to be a popular dish amongst the other diners in the restaurant, some who were obviously regulars but still looked in excited anticipation as the meat was being cut. We finished the meal with some French cheeses and a Crepe Suzutte. The restaurant has an extensive wine cellar, with rare ports and whiskeys to accompany your meal or to buy if you wish.
Pequeno Mundo comes thoroughly recommended for a high quality meal in spectacular surroundings.
