This place has everything just right. Its not really in a spot you would walk past but made the walk out based on other reviews. The staff are all great and work really hard. The setting is gorgeous and the atmosphere is relaxed. The food speaks for itself. We had tuna carpachio and smoked salmon starters, seabass and salmon mains... More

You will probably need to book for this restaurant. Good food and a very well priced wine list. I had the fish chowder for starter then the steak - a word of warning that's a lot of food and I didn't finish my steak even though it was delicious. There was live music which was fantastic and, as a lot... More

A really good restaurant on an elevated site overlooking the Marina and a short walk from where we were staying at Orada. I don't have any negatives, the staff were great, the food was great and for the style of restaurant I found the prices very reasonable. Several times on our way back from the Old Town we just slipped... More

We were just staying up the road and decided to visit on our 1st night, we had to book as it was so busy and they had live music which was a bonus. The food was delicious, we had the garlic prawns, tuna carpaccio, and fish for mains. all sorts of flavours going on, all cooked just right. The waitress... More

We ate here last week. Staff were not very welcoming and couldn't find our reservation. We were told to sit out on the terrace until a table was ready but weren't offered a drink whilst waiting. Food was very good but no one came over to ask us if our meal was ok. Service quite poor. Jackson Rivers, the entertainment,... More

I have eaten in plenty of places over the years, but this has got to be one of the best ever! The food was fantastic! We couldn't decide on a starter,... More

First things first. Ignore the bad reviews, this place is excellent in all areas. The food was the absolute best of our short break in the Algarve and, unlike every other place we tried, was obviously freshly prepared with great attention paid to presentation. Angela, our waitress, deserves a special mention for her service although all the staff were friendly... More

Visited this restaurant during my recent visit to Albufeira. Beautiful setting. We ate Tuna carpaccio, starter for two, gnocchi, black pig, cheesecake, cheese, large beer, glass of rose, bottle of red. Bill came to 74 euro. Quality of food and service was excellent and this restaurant is definately worth a visit.

Restaurant is set in an old house overlooking the marina and ocean in Albufeira. When you arrive there is plenty of outdoor seating to enjoy cocktails and the views before sitting down to eat. We have three children, so we headed straight to our table. There are tables outside on a terrace. While we sat inside it still had an... More
