Owner description: A Small bar which opened late 2009 in old town Albufeira a few minutes walk from Hotel Villa Recife - Plays great music difficult to find elsewhere in the town - Opens at 10.30 am for very good quality breakfast and serves great light meals/snacks until the evening - Mark & Liz (owners) have worked very hard to provide a fresh modern bar with a friendly atmosphere - seemed to be very popular (even attracted a few locals). The bar is now owned by Michael,the long standing barman of Mark and Liz. The bar has not changed and food is still being served.

Was looking forward to visiting this bar after reading some really good reviews. Wish we hadn't bothered, the guy who served my partner was rude and had a serious attitude problem. Fortunately this was the one and only bar In Albufeira where we experienced poor customer service.

Good for a stop on way down or up the hill, good beer and food and friendly owners Michael and Catherine, however guy on bar duty early evening not the most charming, thought it was maybe just me but witnessed with few others too. Abrupt one word answers when people trying to be friendly, pretty rude imo.

What a bar to sit outside of, you have the warmth of the sunshine and you meet a lot of other people. Great place to be to watch the world go by, Michael the owner, Catherine and Pete all smashing people to talk to. You just can't visit Albufeira Old Town and not have a drink at Tunes Bar. We've...

Thank you for your review, all of us here are pleased that you enjoyed the bar, and the scooter outside attracts a lot of attention, but it's not a Vespa it's a 1965 lambereta. Once again thank you for your review More

We have just come back from a long weekend and stayed up from Tunes Bar. We ate breakfast each morning in tunes and was not disappointed once. The breakfast was cooked freshed and well worth the wait. The staff was welcoming and nothing was to much trouble for them. Looking forward to meeting you all again later in the year.... More

Lovely little bar, near the old town. Very friendly staff - Michael and Catherine both made us feel very welcome. Bar serves snacks until 2.30pm and we would personally recommend their home made chips. We also had Sunday lunch at Tunes bar - also recommended. Would definitely advise a visit or two. Cheers to you both. Les and Nic
