As with many other Albufeira eateries the food on offer is simple but very enjoyable. 1L Sangria and a meal for two came to €18. Thoroughly good food and excellent service. Great views across the bays towards Faro. I'd imagine you'd struggle for a terrace seat in the summer. There was however the presence of the seagulls and cats (no... More

The balcony is terrific, you can eat whilst listening to the waves crashing below you. The scottish lady who served us was helpful and friendly. I would recommend the baguettes from here to anyone

Popped in here in early September for lunch while out walking. you can get a proper size large beer and the food is good and cheap, you may have a bit of a wait as it's freshly prepared but there's a great view to take in while you do.

Popped in here twice during our stay - lovely, peaceful, classy and relaxing, with a balcony overlooking the sea and views across to Faro. Enjoyed Prosecco and perfectly chilled Portuguese wine along with tasty freshly prepared baguettes..... bliss. Prices are very reasonable and it's a place you can linger without feeling rushed. The owners are friendly too - so glad... More

Popped in for a late lunch - good food or drink, washed down with a great view.........what more could you want! My only complaint and I know it was October - but it was a bit hit and miss with opening days.

stopped here for a quick drink on walk to the marina, and we were pleasantly surprised by the view! drinks were very sensibly priced, with the staff being very pleasant and polite. outside terrace is the area to go on a nice sunny day to soak up the sun and enjoy the fantastic view.
