This restaurant was recommended to me and it doesn't disappoint. I have been a regular visitor to Albufeira since 2008 and have dined here on many occasions. The standard of catering is outstanding. Due to the restaurants growing reputation, I would recommend booking in advance. After your first visit, you will want to return.

We went there because of the good rewies on TA. We were not impressed. Lack of taste and creativity. To large portions, especially for kids. Guess they have to throw away a lot of food. And also too much fried food. That is probably why english people love this place. The service was good, probably the best we had. But... More

Having visited a few times last year we were looking forward to our visits back to this fantastic Restaurant. It was closed for our first few days as the owners were involved in a Charity bike ride for Help the Heroes, but we booked in as soon as it reopened. Once again the food was delicious. On various visits we... More

Staff remembered us from previous visits, incl photo, and were as helpful and friendly as ever. Never ever had a visit which hasn't been perfect, you see all the reviews they aren't great for...

Wow, what a dining experience. We were lucky to get a table as they were closing for a week or so as the owners were going on a charity cycle. They have a wonderful menu with huge portions and the whole experience there is delightful. The staff though busy are very attentive and friendly. Now here is a restaurant that... More
