I am Portuguese born abroad and we went to this area on holidays. Let me start by saying that the best Portuguese restaurant have a very simple look/décor and they tend to be on the road. We did have an evening in Albufeira and it was the worse night we had in 2 weeks- very poor food- no traditional food... More

Friendly and relaxed. Very good Portuguese food. The manager makes every effort to ensure you are enjoying your evening. Fab homemade desserts. We sat on the terrace with a lovely view. Easy parking.

Had a great evening here. Family run and the owners are hilarious and really put the effort in to entertain you. The food was amazing, the chorizo in red wine, black pork and lime pie were all perfect!

Owner is wonderful and has great sense of humor. Chicken piri piri is to die for. Bring cash unless you have a Portugese credit card. Would definitely come again.
