My wife and our 3 year old ate here on Friday after recommendations from friends who regularly come to Albufiera Old Town. The menu has a selection of traditional Portuguese dishes and english for the less adventurous. The food was very good, came in good time and the cocktails were HUGE. They also have colouring books for the kids to... More

Having walked past a few times these two restaurants were always packed so decided to give it a try. We weren't disappointed as the food staff and atmosphere were excellent. We had the mixed grill for two and couldn't eat it all as there was so much. Great value will definitely be going again before we go home

We have been to this restaurant several times and cannot fault the food. Shashlik is lovely. Ribs are the best in Albuferia by a mile. Now here's the but....if you are hungry or in a hurry try somewhere else. It is so slooooow. Straight forward orders, but food took an age to arrive and we had to chase. You should... More

Went here as we walked past it a number of times and it always looked quite busy. We were very disappointed with the whole experience. The staff were not very helpful when we asked what certain dishes were and didn't look anyway bothered to be honest. Food was of a very poor standard for both my partner and I. We... More

This is by far the best restaurant. Could not choose what I wanted so much variety. Didn't chose a starter as main courses are big enough. I had spare ribs and meat fell off the bone so nice. Most of our party chose mixed grill our plates were empty and full stomachs. The staff are so friendly and accommodating nothing... More

Visited this restaurant on Thursday 3rd July last night of our holiday. Food was good but service was awful to say the least. The bottom of my glass broke and beer was all over me. No one even apologised. (I was wearing white trousers and was staying in Silves a good half hour drive) I asked to speak to the... More

First of all I am very happy to hear that you enjoyed the food, despite your complaint. You remarked that the food was not cheap. Surely you will not find cheap 5 euro dishes in our... More
