Clay Oven has a friendly, warm and lively atmosphere that makes you want to return again and again. The food is well prepared, it is finger licking delicious and reasonable sized portions are served. This is a stop you have to make when on you holiday. Please note that we are not holiday makers so we have the opportunity of... More

Fantastic service. Great food, all the family loved it. Good value for money and anywhere that has a queue outside it at 8 o'clock has great "word of mouth". Get there early!

Arrived at 5.55pm for an early meal and we were told that the restaurant did not open until 6pm and we would need to come back. When we asked if we could sit in the empty restaurant and have drinks while we wait the very reluctant waiter eventually obliged, although we had to wait a further 15mins for him to... More

Heard great reviews about Clay Oven and was not disappointed. Staff attentive and efficient. Had the best meal I've ever had in Albufeira and we have visited for last 6 years. We went back again last night and Meena greeted us and she was just lovely, so friendly and helpful, she remembered us from last week and really made us... More

We searched for a good curry in Albufeira - after trying a higher rated Indian - and being left VERY disappointed with the service we decided to give The Clay Oven a go. We were so glad we did! The food was in a different class - everything we ordered was fresh, piping hot and delicious! The service was slick... More

We have dined here many times over the years whilst on holiday, the food is very good but the staff are so dull. Strange how I went into a bar on the way to the Clay Oven that I visited last year and the barman recognised me right away and chatted like I had only seen him the week before,... More

Our waiter wasn't friendly just took our order and seemed hugely unapproachable and stressed. Kind of put us off ordering more. We ordered starters and mains . The lamb curry was very tasty however our starters lacked flavour we ordered mixed grill. If your not into what appeared to be frozen onion baji mix keep away from that starter as... More
