The was the second year running that my family and I had visited Fat Cats. The food can not be faulted one bit. All home made by the chefs. The cheese burger meal was a favourite of mine along with the veggie curry. We stayed in Portugal near Fat Cats and ate there most days. Michelle and Gary the owners... More

Had visited a couple of times on our previous visit to Albufiera - 3 years ago. The place has been refurbished and seems busier now. Staff were always helpful. We booked our... More

This is a great family friendly pub, we did not eat here but went for the parrot show and the children had a great night, the adults were very happy too with the beer being served in chilled glasses out of the freezer, great night had by all.

Just returned from a 10 night stay in Albuferia with my partner and son.

Fat cats is an English style bar run by English people. It serves food in crockery decorated with cats which I found a little odd. We visited on quiz night so stayed for it after eating. The food was average. We had jacket with cheese, scampi and curry. The curry was presented in a bowl decorated with cats which reminded... More

Sorry our modern stylish cat plates and bowls did not meet your approval. Perhaps if they had rabbits on them you may have approved. If anyone is interested in our plates you can see them on the photos section of tripadvisor. More

Called in for drink, not food. Staff were pleasant enough. Not sure if I would put it on my "must visit" list, but pretty laid back during the day.
