Very friendly and child friendly. Great selection of huge fishbowl size gins. We had a lovely prawn starter, followed by sea bass, which was fantastic. Also had a bottle of local sav blanc which went down very well. Had a very good capacino to finish. Would recommend

Tucked away from the main part of Albufeira but so glad we made the effort to go! Tasty food and ample portions. Amazing fillet steak. Service friendly and efficient. Comfortable surroundings with plenty of room. Will most definitely return!
