This is a very nice traditional Portuguese restaurant with the family having run it for decades. There is a good menu anyway but the specials are very good value and very good. Try the rabbit if you haven't tried it before. Steak is always cooked exactly as requested which doesn't always happen at all!! The covert is very good with... More

Always guaranteed a great meal & great service in Casa Velha! The french onion soup and the fillet steak on a stone is delicious! Waitresses are very friendly. We went 3 times in a week on our last visit to Albufeira!

The food is freshly prepared and made to order, and would highly recommend you try the french onion soup and steak Portugesa. Prices reasonable and they also do a set menu. Staff very pleasant. Probably best... More

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
