This is a place we visit every time we are in Albufeira, it's consistently good. Delicious reasonably priced cocktails and a very nice light lunch and tapas menu. The service is excellent and the view is the best in Albufeira.

Excellent bar/cafe located in a quiet street in the Old Town of Albufeira perfect for lunch and afternoon drinks. The owner is a lovely lady and Iggy the resident cat is so calm and gentle, he sunbathes in a corner and doesn't pester you for food etc. We've been here a few times over our last couple of trips to...

We have just had the pleasure of visiting this lovely place. The staff are extremely friendly and went out of their way to move tables together for our party of 6. I can highly recommend the tapas menu as we tried 5 dishes. Well presented, tasty and great value. A Spanish omelette for €4.50 was one of the tastiest I've... More

We were unlucky that we only came across Iguana on our last day. We had been looking to a bar with good food and view all through our stay and stumbled across this gem too late. The owners are welcoming the view is great and the food was excellent. We are determined to return to sample the Tapas which looked... More

We ate here for dinner after reading the review on trip advisor - we wasn't disappointed. The staff were friendly and very helpful. We didn't have to wait long for the food. I ordered a cheese burger and it was very nice. The view from the balcony was lovely. Would recommend a visit!

We ate lunch twice here in our one week stay at the Boa Vista. It is run by a Scottish lady married to a Portuguese man and what a job they do !! The house wine with tapas went down a treat for us. Tapas , a bottle of wine and a burger meal came to 22 Euros The salads... More

Love the location. The owners are fantastic. Every time we are in Portugal we always visit from vilamoura (it's worth the bus ride). In 10days we went there 3 times. We will be going again this July. More than likely 3 times again as it's so good friendly a little piece of heaven. Alistair eats all their custard tarts.
