This restaurant was recommended to me by a Portuguese lady I work with. She regularly visits when she goes to Albufeira for holidays. The restaurant is set out self service/ canteen style. You go in one way, and exit through another door. You take a tray at the start of the line of bain-marie's and choose from a variety of... More

Having passed this restaurant each day on our way to other places, we decided to give it a try for breakfast, to be honest it wasn't the best or the worst breakfast we have ever eaten but not one we would rush back for priced at €6 each including orange juice, tea or coffee I suppose we shouldn't really complain.

Excellent buffet selection and you know it's not laying there for hours as this place has a constant flow of customers. There is so much to choose from, so if you have allergies like myself you won't be hungry. Staff are friendly would recommend .

The food is presented in a buffet takeaway fashion but there is many choices to be had. Staff are friendly and pleasant. Very clean and hygienic. Food is weighed by the kilo and can be misleading. A decent meal for 2 is around €20 including soft drinks
