This is one of the few places which actually live up to the hype of its tripadvisor reviews. An absolute must visit... More

On our short stay in Albufiera we ate here twice. We found the service Pedro and his staff gave to be friendly and professional.

This is one of our favourite restaurants. Pedro is more like a friend than the owner. Food is excellent, service is great and it is spotless, you could eat your meal off any surface.

The food, service and drinks here awesome as always. This is our 4th year returning and still the best restaurant in Albufeira. New menu items are delightful... Pedro is a pleasure to deal with and Bruno is an excellent addition to the team. Obrigado
