Seafood starters, although expensive, were lovely. Generally nice food and waiters. The local DJ however was quite annoying on the karaoke.

We had a fantastic meal here and the outdoor terrace is brilliant out the back if you have a 3 year old like us because there is a few things for him to play on to keep him quiet why his dinner was cooked. Great prices also.

We were recommened to come here by a few people and werent disappointed. Wouldnt normally go to same restuarant more than once - went here 3 times. Algarvian cataplana for 2 to share was particularly nice. Also worth a drink in The Old House bar which adjoins the restuarant for some good reasonably priced and a better quality karaoke

We have been coming to Albufeira for about ten years, as regular visitors to the Old House we have been meaning to try the restaurant. Only this year we made a conscious effort to try it. It excelled our expectations.service was first class, staff couldn't do enough. Food was delicious. Once you've had your meal retire to the Old House... More

Great little place. At 12euros 50 pp for a tourist menu this is a gem of a place. There was so much food, all fresh and delicious and even a homemade digestif to finish. Had a really good evening here. It is clear that it's a winner as it was very busy. You might pass it and not even notice.... More
