We ate here every third night during our forghtnights stay , you have to book in advance to secure a table, but well worth the little hassle of booking, food was delicious good value and the service was second to none, price depends on what you order.

A little gem of a restaurant if you are looking for a very good yet cheap meal with good service. Geared up at 2 meals for €14 the restaurant does not offer value for single persons, however that is just about the only negative here. What the menu lacks in choice, it makes up for in quality. What they do... More

This restaurant is still as nice as it always was and I keep going back every time I return to Albufeira. The portion size's are huge and some meals are on offer 2 for 15 euro's which is excellent value for money. The food is very nice

This is a very busy restaurant. Very good food, good service and very good prices. On the night we were there they had a deal of 2 main courses for 17.95 when you order a drink. Well worth visiting but do book
