Johnny straps on his Sax as you're being served a super dinner by his hat wearing friendly and dancing staff and starts belting out his music, some his... More

We stayed a week in Albufeira and visited Johnny's twice. Once for the Friday live music night and for a Sunday lunch. It is a must visit place. We were met on arrival by Johnny and made to feel extremely welcome. He even remembered our names The food was delicious and there was a good variety on offer. Johnny's saxophone... More

Called in here one evening on the way home from the strip. We just had a drink but there was music and then a disco. Good lively spot.

Best food so far in the algarve, boyfriend lives here permanently and has been here for 3 months and he says it's the best food he's had since he moved here. Fantastic steak, lovely chicken, beautiful starters.. Lush, just lush.

A fun filled evening with great food and excellent entertainment provided by Johnny himself. We heard Johnny playing the saxophone the first time in the square in Albufeira 20 years ago and the man still can boogie with a lot of soul. Food was excellent and well presented by friendly staff all under close supervision from Johnny's wife. If you... More

We visited Johnny's for the party night and can't fault his hospitality and entertainment. I emailed his wife Sue to book the table and explained that I was currently on a special diet and she went out of her way to provide me with food that suited me. Johnny's Saxophone playing got us all dancing non stop, I was even... More
