Probably the highlight of our holiday food, tucked away in a apartment complex but glad I took the trouble to find it, they have there own house wine with a horse on the bottle and it was lovely, the waiters were pleasant, could have topped the wine up more often but they were busy, the honey mint sauce with the...

The service here was impeccable. The standard of the food was really good. My partner absolutely raved about the clams. The wine was reasonably priced and absolutely delicious. Started with prawn cocktail for me and clams for him. I had the Cod O Lusitano and he had a mahoosive veal chop. We both had a dessert, a coffee and a... More

What a lovely restaurant, lovely polite waiters, lovely selection of food and lovely wine. The Portuguese steak is the best I've tasted in the algarve, my boyfriend had lamb chops with a sweet mint sauce which he loved. Defiantly one of the best in albufeira. Worth the trip out of the old town for, even managed to get us a... More

This place overall when you add up value/service/quality should be number one on trip advisor. Now I've eaten in some of the best restaurants in the places I've been and some right dives, but this place never changes the quality of food-excellent, service-great and flavours-awesome, it's a no rush restaurant with perfect time between meals to allow your food to...

Visited here with friends and family. Very welcoming on arrival. Shared the monkfish with my wife and it was really tasty. Lots of fish. Our friends had the sea bass for two and really enjoyed it. Great big portion. Two of the teenage girls had the prawn curry and I managed a taste which was excellent. Girls were raving about... More

Excellent restuarant although tricky to find. Fresh fish with steaks as an alternative. For a spot of lunch this cannot be beaten.

This restaurant is set back from the road and could easily be missed. We both had fish dishes and they were very good. The service was very unhurried and the atmosphere welcoming with the host happy to make recommendation. Will go again when we return to Portugal.
