The worst food we've had all week in the Algarve. If you come on holiday to Portugal to have all-day breakfast with a pint of beer then this place could be for you. If you come to Portugal to experience the local food at local prices then keep your distance from this place. It is simply awful, the food is... More

Went to Johnny Hoopers on our second last night on Holidays. We went to the restaurant and chanced our arm at getting a table without a reservation. The staff could not have been more helpful and accommodated us. I would recommend however that if you are planning on going to book ahead in advance as you may not be as... More

We picked up a local tourist map and spotted Johnny Hooper's on there. We called to book a table and they squeezed us in last minute and I am delighted they did. The 3 course meal was tremendous and the entertainment all evening just as good. Bravo Johnny!

Welcomed to the establishment by Johnny upon our arrival and we then proceeded to have a great evening out. The food is o.k. but nothing special which really was what we had expected, the entertainment however was wonderful. I believe that everyone in there enjoyed their evening including Martin who was celebrating his birthday and who reminded us of 'Young... More

We visited Johnny Hoopers for a fiftieth birthday celebration recently, what a fantastic night we had, Johnny made such a fuss of Mark, he couldnt of been a better host, he did a fantastic set on his saxaphone whilst everyone was eating, and the food was amazing, it was then followed by a quiz which was great, he got everyone...
