Lovely breakfast and cheap

Me and my family visited this restaurant whilst on holiday to have a late breakfast. Very friendly welcoming at the door and all staff were polite. We ordered the traditional breakfast which was very tasty and a good quality.

Very friendly and helpful staff lovely quiet location even though it is situated on the main STRIP in new town Albufeira.We ate at around 5pm so too early for party time.Mixed grill was an average portion but cheap and burgers were of good quality and also reasonably priced.Drinks were also cheap certainly for the location.Recomended

Visited a number if times during my holiday for breakfast. As a large group we had a variety of requests that were not on the menu. However, whenever we asked for different combinations they made it for us no problem. Great service
