We went to Johnny Hopper's on a Friday night after reading the reviews. We were not disappointed. The table is yours for the whole evening so you don't feel rushed. The three course meal was simple tasty food. Johnny was a great host, greeting us at the door and his team were attentive and friendly. The show was excellent and... More

Having visited on previous trips we had to go back this holiday for a fun night. Same format as before.....but it works....so why change it!!!! Must say that we noted some improvement this time in the food that was served as before we had gone along for the entertainment rather than expecting a great meal!! We were a bit "niggled"... More

My partner and I had a beautiful Sunday lunch here, delicious chicken salad and fish and chips. If you are in Albuferia make sure you go to this restaurant, you will not be disappointed and the staff are extremely friendly and efficient.

We go to the Algarve every year and our trip would not be complete without a trip to Johnny Hoopers. Johnny play the sax whilst you have dinner. We were there on the opening night and hope to be going for many more years. Food is delicious too. You may need to book to avoid disappointment. It's a very popular... More

Had a lovely meal here last night. My only wish was that we timed it right as we were the only ones there and the main show is only Tuesday and Friday I believe. Despite that it was a lovely meal and I can't complain
