The food was overpriced and average. The service was fine, but nothing special. The house red wine was served chilled!

Wonderful friendly staff. Food always spot on. Our favourite evening meal was the seafood and rice for two. AMAZING!!!! Kids portions just right for our 5 and 7 year old.

We found this restaurant in the hotel magazine: Dining Out. Dinner and menucard did not match the pictures in the magazine... We visited two other restaurants from the Dining Out magazine - neither of them matched the description in the magazine.

The last time I visited was well over a year ago, I was given a very warm welcome by Sandra who runs the restaurant with family members, i was very surprised... More

We hadn't been to Casa Velha for a few years and weren't disappointed on our return. Very good well-presented local food with a very drinkable house rose. Special mention to the sole meunière with banana, and the fish cataplana. Friendly service, but too blowy to sit in the garden.

This restaurant was across from our hotel. We didn't eat in it until our last night which was a mistake because I would have went back. Service was friendly and quick. Food was lovely and very reasonable.

My wife and I tried this after reading some good reviews on T.A. we had soup and garlic mushrooms for starters followed by Portuguese steak. The service and food were excellent and promptly delivered to our table. I did think it was a little more pricey than others near by but it was very busy when we visited so it... More

We had the tasting menu for lunch, it was nice but certainly not up to 2 star Michelin level. The wind blew water all over my dress and on the table, the staff made no attempt to remove this and change them, the training staff were I must say though doing their best. Lunch for 4 persons in the range... More

We always make a point of visiting Casa Velha when we are in Alburfeira as the food is amazing and it has a lovely family run restaurant feel to it. The restaurant looks great and the food is really nice too and great value. The service is second to none and nothing is too much trouble for them. Well worth... More
