This is a great place for lunch or a drink, the staff are very friendly, the view over the bay is excellent, the lunch menu was very reasonable, it's a pity they do not do evening meals as we would probably have gone in again

Checked this little gem out after spotting in sitting on the cliff top from the beach. Popped in for a late lunch sunning ourselves on the beach. Cant remember exactly what we ordered but had a mojito each which the lovely Scottish waitress apologised for the delay in making them. But to be honest we didn't notice the time as... More

I went here with some friends and I really enjoyed it! The view out from the terrace overlooks the sea and the fisherman's beach and you can also see the coastlines of Vilamoura to Faro. Also the owners and staff are very friendly and helpful. I definitely recommend it!

This cafe doesnt really even look open from the street where its situated, and this is a bit off the beaten track but it opens up into a really nice spacious indoor bar area and a beautiful terrace area raised up and looking directly on to the beautiful ocean. The food is excellent and beautifully presented and the staff and... More

I also could not let the comment I have read go without a comment as I think is was extremely unfair. I am a frequent visitor to the Iguana Cafe and it is what it clearly states a Cafe selling light meals and snacks. It is not a Restaurant selling Authentic Portuguese food which clearly the visitors where looking for.... More

One of the best sea-views of Albufeira! Great milkshakes & cocktails! Chill-out music & very professional service. In Old Town of Albufeira, near the beach.

Our accommodation was in the Marina which meant a 20 /30 minute walk into the Old Town. This cafe was ideal for a cold drink and snack. Service and views from were first class.

Sorry but I simply cannot let the previous review go without comment as I use the Iguana Cafe frequently, it is near a holiday home I have in Albufeira. The reviewer below seems to have caused themselves trauma by entering an establishment, named Iguana CAFE only to find it is a Cafe? There are many types of cafe, particularly in... More
