Visited here the last Saturday in January 2016. We had read the reviews and had to check it out. Even in January, booking was essential. I thoroughly enjoyed the salmon which was very moist and tasty and my husband raved about the fish and chips. Combined with good service and pleasant inexpensive wine. You can't go wrong here. We'll be... More

Have eaten here each time we come to Albufeira, have never been disappointed. We normally go with friends whom we visit in Albufeira and they too love the place so much that they recommend it to anyone they get to know. Lovely atmosphere, lovely food and excellent value for money.

I hate to admit it, but I am quite judgmental when it comes to eating out as I believe that when I am paying for something it should be edible, presented nicely and be accompanied with good service. Then I will shout from the rooftops about how good it was and I will always go back and hopefully persuade others... More

We discovered this hotel when we was on holiday last year, and ever since it's the only place we have been. The food is amazing, and the portion sizes are huge. There is an offer of 2 meals for under 20 euros. Can't recommend this restaurant enough. We booked to eat here every night for the week we was here,... More

Superb eating warm friendly atmosphere and you have to book to get in here because its so popular, The steak pie was to die for full of meat and the right amount of pastry, beautifully presented and excellent value for money, once youve been you will be back.

We were a bit anxious on arrival at our 1800 booking as we were the only people there. We were made to feel very welcome and was shown to our seat. Our anxiety was short lived as no sooner had we sat down other diners arrived in large numbers. The service was swift and attentive but not obtrusive. They serve... More
