The English Kitchen on the Montechoro side of the Strip in Albufeira is an excellent choice for traditional English food. The owners and staff are British and are extremely welcoming; nothing is too much trouble ... They even cooked my... More

My wife and I visited this cafe this morning with high expectations, but this experience left us so disappointed, with microwaved sausages, cold tomatoes, tea like water, chipped cups and hairs in the fried eggs. The staff were very friendly and chatty, its such a shame the staff did the talking not the breakfast!!!!!!!!!!!

A bit pricey for the area where the restaurant was situated in run down part of Montechero. I had the 5 lamb cutlets about 5 small pieces of lamb in total. My wife had the chicken curry which was bland. Two soft drinks & two coffees €38.
