Great location on The Strip. Inside & outside seating areas. Really really friendly and accommodating staff nothing was a bother to them. Went there for Sunday lunch and one English Breakfast both were excellent and very reasonably priced. Would highly recommended it when you fancy a bit of home cooking.

Although I am a regular to Albufeira, in August I came with a hen party. This place was accommodating for the 8 of us (moving tables to seat us together), the food was very reasonably priced and yummy! Will definitely be visiting again!

Visited here twice during my stay in Albufeira and on both occasions the food was gorgeous and reasonably priced with great service. On my first visit I had fish and chips and my second visit I had spaghetti bolognaise. Both followed by homemade apple crumble and proper custard. Both meals were less than €15 for both courses.

This place does a great reasonably priced breakfast until 4pm. The restaurant is very clean and nicely decorated and the breakfast was really tasty and priced at less than 4 euros with a drink included.
