Wonderfully home made food, fresh breakfasts and fantastic deserts. Lovely little spot to stop and relax, been coming here for a few years and it never fails to disappoint. My favourite is the slow roast pork followed by homemade banoffee pie!

We stopped by here for breakfast during our stay in Albufeira based on other reviews we had read. For the price and amount of food you get, it is definitely a good deal. The Cottage is tucked away amongst other restaurants and bars along the strip in Albufeira. The owner is nice and provided quick service. There's plenty of outdoor... More

As always we popped into the Cottage whilst in Albufeira. Ate breakfast there on 2 mornings. Excellent value at 3.50euros and excellent service. Popped in one day when it got quite chilly and decided to have just soup and dessert as it was quite early in the day. Made very welcome by a nice young man who took our order.... More

TheCottage, Owner at The Cottage Restaurant, responded to this review

It's lucky my wife spotted you were not happy with the steak on your mixed grill and was able to cook it a little bit more to your liking in order that you were able to say it was now fine and to clear the plate. Hope to see you again soon. More

We visited the cottage on Wednesday evening after eating here many times before on our regular visits to Albufeira and the food was just as nice as always - the staff are fantastic and it really is a little gem on the strip. This is the first time we have visited the beginning of the season, and as the restaurant... More
