Algarabia is a charming restaurant run by two sisters. Isabel and Pilar are the most wonderful hosts, and made us feel like we were sitting at their kitchen table during our meal. The food is outstanding and a great value. I highly recommend a visit to Algarabia.

Exelent food and service! I recommend the tasting menu. The tasting menu and wine for two was about 90€. Good value for your money.

They don't normally open until 9:30 p.m., but they graciously gave us a 9:00 p.m. reservation time to cater to... More

We came here on a friday night. At 10:30pm there were only two other tables occupied. Apparently folks prefer to dine on terraces during this time of the year. Lucky for us because we didn't need a reservation. This restaurant is owned by two sisters who are just absolutely, wonderful women. They made us feel so welcomed (which is hard... More

Six good friends went to Algarabia for dinner and by the time we were finished with a wonderful meal, we had two new friends. Isabel and Pilar, the two sisters who own the restaurant, are the most charming ladies you will ever meet. They welcomed us into their restaurant like family, which is actually more like eating in your family... More

Isabella and Pilar (sisters who own the restaurant) made us feel like family. Great food, authentic- we did the special menu for €35, well worth it- included 2 tapas, special cod and pork courses and 2 desert- awesome.

Delicious meal! My wife and I loved the cozy atmosphere. Felt like home! Family run restaurant by two sisters who take care of you the moment you walk in the door.
