Beautiful restaurant

We went here on the last day and I wished we had gone on the first. 8 of us ate and we all had wonderful food. The staff were also great and made all of us including the children feel really welcome. Thanks for a great time.

This lovely modern restaurant was only yards away from our villa. It was very busy the first night we went, for me this is a great sign of a good place to eat. We were not disappointed, the service was fantastic, lots of waitresses around. The food was lovely and such good value for money. We ate here for our... More

I always come back here, since the last 10 to 15 years. Excellent food. Always very well welcomed by Joaquim, the owner. Very well served by Vera. Congrats. Every once or twice a year I come to Galè I always think in having dinner here.

We were shown to a table down the side of the restaurant as we hadn't booked, which it appears you need to do in this area due to the small number if restaurants. Unfortunately thus meant we were forgotten about. Drinks and starters came and were tasty but we were then left for an hour waiting for mains with no... More

This restaurant is not located in Albufeira town. It's outside near Sao Rafael and other beaches. It's a local restaurant which is nicely decorated in a modern way. There is both indoor and outdoor seating and a nice sunset view. Service was extremely friendly and helpful. Food was good, tasty but not outstanding. However if you are staying in this... More

Ate here rather than one round the corner as this was quiet to sit outside rather than on a busy road. Modern and stylish décor. Suggest booking, quite big but full in and outside midweek. Good service, excellent food. 4 starters, 4 mains, 4 desserts and 5 drinks 118 euros. Good for couples or families. Easy parking in car park... More

Back again to Portugal this summer and we couldn't miss a visit to this place! Amazing food,service & atmosphere and has been recently refurbished making it even better. We ate here on four nights and each time was as good as the last. I would recommend booking a table in advance as it is very busy during the summer and... More

We had a reservation for 12 and when we showed up the restaurant wasn't super busy. Drinks were ordered and soon thereafter we ordered food. Between the app and the food there was over an hour wait. They didn't come by one time and ask us if we wanted more drinks, nor did they check on us. Rather, when the... More
