Passed this little gem everyday without noticing it tucked away on the steps leading up to the Sol e Mar Hotel. It was Wednesday evening and I had the midweek roast dinner which was delicious, my friends said the vegetable soup was the best they had tasted. the service was quick and all the staff were friendly. Called again on... More

advertised as the best roast in town, but not that good !! restaurant was lovely, service was slow due to not enough staff on for how busy they were, we had the roast dinner and it was OK, but not great.

Lovely staff, food, wine and ambience :-) We popped in for coffee and then a little later lunch. Had a lovely afternoon and it was tagged as a favourite location.

Excellent food, great service and remarkable location. We shared a table for two on the seafront on both evenings. The salmon and beef fillets were of very high quality, cooked to perfection. Accompaniments were plentiful and we left feeling more than full! The drink prices are average for restaurants in the area at €3.50 for a large beer. Wine was... More

We had 2 visits to this restaurant in our week in Albufeira, which is unusual as my husband is a Chef and likes to try somewhere different each night, but he enjoyed his meal here so much the first time, he thought we should return again... We tried the Sunday Roast (on the Wednesday!) where we had 3 generous slices... More

Situated up the left hand stairs by the tunnel to the beach. Thought we had struck gold with the site, layout and waitress but downgraded to bronze when it came to eat, which after all is what we went for! Paid 38 euros for two people that included starters and mains plus half bottle of wine and a lemonade. The... More

We both had pie and it was fab, I asked for a baileys coffee and one of the waitresses had to go to the shop to buy more cream which was great of... More

Our first visit to O Tunel was definitely our last. The service was appallingly slow albeit pleasant. Two waitresses were run off their feet trying to keep up with demand. The bar was not staffed so they had to cover this also. We waited 30 minutes for a bread and olives starter! Another 30 mins passed before we got our... More

We returned here for a second meal after so enjoying our first visit. We purposely came back to try the Sunday roast (also available on Wednesdays) and we were not able to clear the plate,not through lack of trying though,defeated! A lovely restaurant and nice people running it. The outside doesn't do it justice,inside is clean,bright, well furnished and intimate... More
