Great restuarant to find ,Kevin and staff were brilliant ,even cooking for us ,when the area had a major power and water problem and they were packing to go. We went back the next night to say thanks ,and they could not have been more welcoming. Will most certainly be back

On our first visit to Ma's we had the full english breakfast which was very tasty and filling. We didn't have the "Mega" breakfast which was double everything and would have been a struggle to eat, and all for the princely sum of 3 euros including Tea or Coffee and toast. In our 10 days in Albufeira we visited Ma's... More

Just back from Albufeira and went to MA's a few times. Was quite surprised by the lack of British food joints at the strip compared to other resorts I've been to. When your feeling a bit rough and want something Brittish and filling,this is the place to visit. Staff,food and service all excellent.
