Was in Portugal May 2014 and decided to pay Casa Velha a visit. I have ate at this restaurant before and enjoyed the food, the price is very reasonable. 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

The meals are well prepared and priced, the service is good. It's all you want in a restaurant. Try the roast rabbit, not found everywhere, and very nicely presented. One caveat: the adjacent karaoke bar, owned by the same family, starts up at 9pm and (lacking a door between dining and bar rooms) is loud enough to interfere with your... More

This restaurant was pretty much opposite our hotel and was busy every night we passed, both mix of local people and fellow holiday makers which is always a good sign! The menu is awesome, we had french onion soup to start which was so filling and tasty, followed by fillet and Portugese style steaks which we struggled to finish the... More

Busy little family run restaurant with some of the best food I had on my holiday. Steaks are gorgeous (especially Steak Portuguesa served wrapped in salty ham on a bed of crispy potato with a rich wine sauce). Onion soup to start comes highly recommended (served with a bubbly crust of cheese on top), good wine and great portions. Ask... More

One of the problems??? I have with Albufeira is that there are so many good reasonably priced restaurants close to our digs. Having been in the Algarve at the beginning of February when the weather was foul, we rarely ventured more than 5 minutes walk from base. Fortunately the weather relented long enough one evening to allow us to venture... More
