Beautiful views make it worth the trip alone. But therefore to it than that. Good service good prices good snacks. On the way out of town but worth the walk. It's not just about the view that is stunning, you're welcomed and looked after.

Excellent location, looking out over the sea. Friendly staff, and good value. Food looked good as it was being delivered to other tables. Well worth a stop when walking to Marina from centre of Albufeira

Only criticism is parking,... More
