We had a really great time at Johnny Hooper's Saxophone Bistro. Nearly everything on the menu was gluten free which made eating out on holiday so much easier. Johnny welcomed us to the restaurant and played some great music. There was a music quiz and dancing, would definitely recommend.

This review is a continuation of Paulines and my visits to Portugal over the past couple of years whilst Motor-homing. If you are in Portugal, in particular the Algarve and close to Albufeira, and are looking for a good night out, look no further. If you enjoy music, wine, food, company and laughter, Jonny Hooper's Bar, just off the Strip,... More

Our faboulous meals of cajun spiced fish with garlic mash and a homemade burger hit the spot, leaving us full... More

We passed this place by chance shortly after we had already eaten. I had read good reviews on TA about Johnny Hoopers before going to Albufeira, and the wonderful sound of the Saxaphone drew us in. It was around 8pm, and the main room was quite busy. We told the woman at the bar that we would just like some... More

Hi, Mary, glad you had a great night and thank you for your positive review and for recommending us! I do apologise for the error with your dessert. The waitress who had been serving you all evening was aware you were gluten-free but the waiter who took your dessert order didn’t realise, unfortunately. I would just like to reassure coeliacs...
