Overlooking the sea, this is a great restaurant in a great location. On a Sunday, in addition to the normal menu, you can have a classic Sunday roast with all the trimmings. We started with carrot and cumin soup and prawns on bruschetta followed by roast pork and roast chicken. The quality of the food is excellent and Sunday lunch... More

We had two excellent meals: dinner one evening and Sunday lunch a couple of days later. The food was delicious and interesting, the service was friendly and efficient, and the atmosphere was great. Loved the live entertainment.

We went to this restaurant several times on our last trip to Albufeira and couldn't wait to go back but this time there was something missing that we couldn't put our finger on. The food was lovely, no complaints there. The menu is quite limited if you were going back a few times but what we had was good. I... More

This was only the 3rd time the restaurant has done Sunday lunch, & we'd been recommended to try's it by friends. We've been previously for evening meals, so we knew it would be of a good standard. We were not disappointed (& to avid disappointment, remember to book!) The choices were beef, pork or chicken. One of our party chose... More

We had dinner here last Thursday (after we made a booking at lunchtime). On arrival we were met by Johan who gave us a choice of table. Neil went for the beetroot and goat cheese salad as a starter, it was as good as he remembered. Mains were the classic Iberian black pig (for me) and Salmon with chorizo and... More

We were fortunate to get a table without a booking on a Tuesday evening. This turned out to be a real bonus as it was one of the live music nights (Tuesdays and Fridays). The experience was superb from start to finish. Excellent food and service, great value and a lovely location. The restaurant is a 10-15 minute walk from... More
