Our family had an enjoyable dinner here while in Albufeira over Christmas. Service was top notch. The ambiance of the place was also that of a cozy neighborhood bistro. The menu was smaller but lots of interesting choices made with local products.

On our first visit to Albufeira we were searching for another recomended restaurant when we were fortunate to come across this wonderful little Bistro. We have now eaten there 3 times including New Years Eve, and will probably go back for our last night tonight. The service from the two young brothers is second to none and the small but... More

We stumbled across this restaurant when Os Arcos was full. It is practically next door to os Arcos, which is up a side street off the main square in the old town. It has an Indian restaurant and a fancy leather shop at the start of the street. It is a small restaurant so we were lucky to get a... More

We came into the bistro having read so many good reviews. We were sat down by the waiter who is quite the dish himself so we were onto a winner already. Inside the decor gave it that tranquil feel. We ordered two white wines which was very nice wine by the way. Then we were offered bread by the waiter... More

All five of us had a lovely meal at the Bistro, two of us had pork with Dijon mustard sauce , one lamb chops a spaghetti bologna and a salmon dish all excellent and followed by great deserts.  Well worth a visit...Walked past a couple of years ago and never tried it, what a shame excellent value...

Further to the previous users comment/review, Bistro is open, we are a wonderful meal here last night (16/10/14). Service and food was faultless. Everyone in our party of three thoroughly enjoyed the food. Great wee gem but get here early or book, tables are limited.

Another fine meal at Bistro with friends. The lovely restaurant was packed the night we went but the boys were as usual attentive and polite. The food was exceptional as always. Nice to go to a restaurant and know you will have top quality in both food, preparation, and service. Can't wait for the next meal.

The best part about this restaurant is that no one was harassing you to come in like the other hosts in the old town. The atmosphere was also very nice inside. Enjoyed the food and would go back on another vacation. The best part was when the server took a blow torch to the creme brûlée at our table. Good... More
