we stumbled across this little but full of character, café bar. views were fantastic and the Iguana house Tapas & bottle of house wine were just what we needed on a hot and sunny afternoon. Staff were very friendly and pleasant, especially when we kept moving tables to keep in the shade. Liked it that much we went back twice... More

We went out of our way to find this place having read such great reviews. It was closer to the Old Town than I expected from our GPS. The view was amazing. The food, although a simple lunch menu was very nice and desserts were to die for - huge too. One to visit when you have plenty of time... More

Went to lunch at Iguana Cafe having just arrived in Albufeira in the morning. It is situated on the sea front about 10 minutes west of the centre of Albufeira. Having had an early start and not too impressive food on Ryanair needed a long relaxing lunch. This is exactly what we got. My children were really impressed by their... More

We travelled through from villamoura for lunch and wasn't disappointed. Although Food was very basic it was perfect for lunch time. Cocktails and ice cream deserts were the highlight of the afternoon. Outstanding setting and staff very friendly. Would recommend!

Great views and lovely cocktails. We never tried the food here, as its just sandwiches, toasties and salads but they look nice. But its a lovely location to have a drink, especially a freshly made cocktail overlooking the beach and sea.

We had just arrived and needed a drink on a hot day. This place is deceiving from the front it looks ordinary, but go out the back and you arrive on a lovely decked area overlooking the sea. They also do sandwiches and snacks, which were good size portions and value for money the drinks were reasonable too. The only... More

This cafe formerly known as Cafe Latino is our favourite place to relax in all of Albufeira. Best location overlooking the beach and bay from the lovely terrace. The current manager is a lovely warm friendly scottish lady and she makes everyone feel very welcome. The cafe is visited by the local hearthrob, Jorge (ask) who is really cool. Great... More

We had a relaxing late lunch on the terrace overlooking the sea - great view! The staff were very friendly, the sangria and cerveja chilled, and the tapas tasty. Great spot for lunch!

When you go to the old town in Albufeira you must visit this fantastic cafe. Sit and chill out with a cold drink and soak up the sun on the beautiful terrace over looking the beach. Quality snacks available from the menu. Super service always given by the owners and staff. Once you sample what Cafe Iguana has to offer... More
