Very nice and polite guys who work in the restaurant, good food although not Portuguese type dishes. Pasta, creme brûlée, cod were very good.

Noticed this little Bistro one night but it was booked up, so we decided to make reservations. Ended up coming back again on our last night. Unbelievable food, in a picturesque little Restaurant. Really friendly and helpful staff, who remembered us when we came back the second time. Hamburger and Chips, and the Creme Brulee were particular favorites of ours,... More

We tried the Bristo because we’d seen it on trip advisor, it was listed somewhere between 10 and 20 but it should definitely be in the top 10. We tried a few higher on the list, one being first for a while (located at the top of the new town strip) but the Bistro (in the old town) was the... More

Even my teenagers liked the food!! Very relaxed and pleasant staff, tough competition locally with os Argos and o manjar close by but keeps up with both of them with its own tasty dishes. Monkfish is fantastic and well worth trying!

Lovely hospitality and really well cooked food. Had a super cooked steak - not quite as good as O'Leme in nearby Pateo - but in the top 10% I have ever had This is possibly more of a couples restaurant than families, but a family of four were well looked after.

Me and my wife booked here the night before so we could eat on one of the few outdoor tables, which I would strongly recommend. The service was excellent, all the guys were very friendly and didn't hassle us like a lot of the waiters in albufeira do. The food was outstanding, try the Thai green curry, me and my... More
