Loads of entertainment from Fun Quizzes, Karaoke,Comedy hypnosis shows, Parrot & Reptile Shows etc etc . We have a lovely sun terrace and pool that our clients are allowed to use.

My partner and I visited the diner a few times while staying in Albufeira, Portugal. We were both made very welcome by all the staff and the British owners Gary & Michelle. The food and hygiene standards was outstanding and the whole entertainment experience was memorable for many good reasons. A visit to "fat cats" is NOT to be missed.
