Visited here for a bite to eat with my family and have to say we were really disappointed. We ate here last year and was a real little gem of a place but my God were we surprised upon our return here. Food only average and service not great, felt like we were more of a burden than anything else... More

We called here on our final night in Albufeira, my Wife and I were the only people there at 6:30 pm, fifteen minutes later it was full. We opted for the 12.50 tourist menu, which consisted of starter, main, dessert, coffee and drink. I chose red house wine, which was very generous, as I just expected a small glass. Bread,... More

First visit here and will return. Garlic carrots are superb and the steak Portuguese is lovely. Only criticism would be very limited children's menu. It was very busy always a good sign.

Have passed this restaurant a number of times on numerous visits to Albufeira & have never had a meal until tonight & we can honestly say it was fabulous, wish we tried before. When visiting Albufeira don't walk past make sure you enter. Very good ambience.

This lovely old restaurant is family run and everyone is greeted with a warm welcome. Sandra, owner/server is marvellous. You are spoiled for choice with the delicious menu and the tourist menu is great value. Fish with banana??!! Fabulous. It should not work, but it does. We had the tourist menu, Couvert, starter, main course, pudding, coffee and we had... More
