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

Had another fantastic night out (well went twice actually - it was so good!). Johnny and staff do a fantastic job at making everyone welcome and nothing is too much trouble. Great food and sangria. Also want to recommend the sunday lunch - fantastic roast + live music. All set out on a sunny terrace. Bliss. Looking forward to visiting... More

Went for a family meal & night out (mum, dad, 15yr old son & 11yr old daughter). The food was lovely and the entertainment was great. A fantastic 'grown up' night out suitable for our whole family. I think younger children may feel a little overwhelmed later in the evening but our 11yr old daughter enjoyed dancing the night away.

We went with a group of people who we're staying at the the same holiday B&B. I'd heard a lot about the saxophone grill, the entertainment quiz and dancing are what we really went for. The food was beyond expectation an rounded off the whole evening. Johnny hooper plays his saxophone music at the beginning of the night, follows up... More

All round a excellent night out with great food and amazing entertainment. I would recommend going if there's a few people coming with you as i believe it would be dull for a single person.
