Good choice and friendly staff. We enjoyed the fish cataplan (but make sure you don't mind fish with bones!). Second visit we had beef stroganoff and steak portugues - both excellent.

Visited Restaurante Expresso with family and friends for lunch. Most of us had the tourist menu which offered amazing value and choice including fresh fish. The food was excellent and the 2 friendly waiters looked after us brilliantly. A truly excellent restaurant. You must visit here.

We visited this restaurant many times when staying at Forte do Vale and were disappointed when Aurel and Marianna left. However, to be honest, we have visited Expresso again on our recent stay in Albufeira and thoroughly enjoyed our visit. Found the waiters to be very friendly and efficient and the food served was extremely tasty. The restaurant was fairly... More

Don't be deceived by the small exterior. Here is a restaurant with a big heart. Great food, excellent chef (mama), and attentive front of house staff made for a great evening. No rush and savour every mouthful.

This restaurant is a little unassuming from outside and you could easily walk by as no outstanding features. HOWEVER! The service is genuinely friendly and attentive, the wine was expensive tasting, but only 2 euros for a very very large glass. Almost double that served in other local restaurants. The Portuguese styled steak dish was superb and delicious, highly recommended.... More

Good looking restaurant with a typical Portuguese decor and cuisine you can expect. Food was good, service very professional and attentive, restaurant very clean, reasonable prices. They did bring wrong sauce to my husband but we didn't make a fuss, sometimes you forgive when everything else is perfect. Very well done to the team!

My partner and I were staying at The Forte do Vale apartments and this lovely restuarant was just down the road. It is a family run business with the mother doing the cooking and the son providing great service, together with his female assistant(who may also be a relative). The menu was varied, very reasonably priced, including the starters and... More

We ate at this family run restaurant 4 times and every meal was greatly enjoyed. We were received and served by a very friendly staff. The decor is Portuguese typical. It was nice to have real linen on the table. The portions were just right, the wine selection was very good and the complimentary port after the meal was much... More
