Ate here last night based on the excellent trip advisor reviews; we were not disappointed! Sergio was very informative about the menu and nothing was to much trouble. I had goats cheese to start followed by the fillet steak, which was cooked perfectly to my liking. My partner had a mozzarella starter followed by the fillet steak, he is very... More

Nice intimate restaurant with good food and wine, the chicken kebab was delicious. The music was very subtle and the service was excellent, especially when the chef came out to see if the meal was ok.

The food was lovely. We ate here twice during our one week stay. The staff are very friendly and the chef even came out to check whether we enjoyed our food and to explain what had gone into some of the meals. The homemade sardine pate was so delicious. Other restaurants we tried just offered the pate from a prepared... More

Had another fantastic meal at the Bistro. The caliber of the food was still one of the best I have had in Albufeira. The fillet steak with mushroom sauce. Have found a few close, but none quit as well prepared. Kudos for keeping the menu simple and the portions just right. Will of course return to the very capable staff... More

We went to Bistro after discovering them on Tripadvisor. It's a cute little restaurant with a cosy atmosphere. The waiters are very friendly; especially the waitress who tried to teach me some Portugese words, was sweet. The food is nice. I would recommend you go here one evening, especially if you get bored of the Portugese kitchen, as this place... More

Small place, good atmosphere located just back a few streets from the beach. Very good food! Probably one of the best meals of our holiday.
