We visited Albufeira during a short break in April this year. The weather wasn't great, it was very wet and windy, so we spent most of the day exploring the Old Town. We happened upon Cabana Fresca one day when walking down to Fisherman's Beach. It was raining and the greeter asked us if we'd like to stop for a... More

Firstly my food, the Cataplana I had was gorgeous, it was very tasty and beautifully presented. The other meals unfortunately didn't live up to the same standard. The food was to a good standard but the portion size and accompaniments was lacking. This restaurant isn't too far off being excellent, it just needs to deliver everything to the same high... More

lovely scenic spot, some friendly staff, but felt they tried to harrass passing customers too much, bit of an irritant to the views, and tried to charge me for a meal we did not have, "twice" both times they had a new person dealing with the bills, did not believe them.

Me and my husband stumbled across this restaurant which is in a beautiful position by the beach. We were pleasantly surprised as the food was absolutely outstanding. It is a little more pricey than lots of the other restaurants in town but when you compare the food you understand why. I was very surprised to notice that is was rated... More

Food and location are very good. Menu is very large but not a not on it. Everything served looks v nice but is on the expensive side. Flavours is the sister restaurant. We liked this one better.

We walked by this restaurant daily on our way to the beach..the yummy smells from the kitchen failed to make us hungry and the host never failed to greet. So on our last evening in Albufeira we payed them a visit, our seafood was amazing and fresh no wonder it's so busy. The staff were super attentive to our needs..and... More

Visited this restaurant on Halloween evening, great atmosphere and the view is amazing looking out over the beach and hearing the waves splashing. Staff were very friendly and welcoming dressed up as vampires! The food was stunning, very authentic Portuguese fish and chicken dishes, plus we were given 15% discount off our mains to tempt us in so I advise... More
