Back again this year, just as good!

Lovely restaurant. It has great history, it was the studio for the painter Bailote and the paintings are on the walls downstairs. The staff are so friendly and helpful. The food was great. The lamb shank roasted with cranberries and raisins was a favourite with my husband and my mum. We ate there... read more

Happened upon the restaurant this evening. The lady outside wasn't too pushy... Great start. The service was a little slow and the portions on the chicken breast were a little small. But the steaks were spectacular. A little warning I normally eat medium-rare at home so ordered medium. Came out a perfect Irish medium rare. Will go back.

Best restaurant by far in Albufeira. Fabulous dishes served with fresh vegetables and potatoes( not chips) at great prices.Grilled salmon and leg of lamb were our particular favourites. Hard working, friendly staff, in particular the lovely lady from Leicester who worked front of house. We were so impressed we ate there at least five times during our stay. Highly recommended.

The food was excellent! I only had one problem: what to choose? Bailote has a wide variety of food to offer, and every meal is delicious while simultaneously appealing to the eye (my sister's meal was almost a piece of artwork). I chose the steak, and I have never eaten a steak as good as this one. The dessert was... More

Myself and my partner have dined at this restaurant on a couple of occasions for lunch and decided to try the evening menu. The tapas lunch menu is fantastic and caters for different dietary requirements so we were hoping the evening menu would be just as good. Well ... We were not disappointed! My partner and i shared soup and... More

The lamb shank roasted with cranberries and raisins was a favourite with my husband and my mum. We ate there twice this time and recommend it.

I visited the Bailote restaurant on Monday 6/7/15 with colleagues from work who had been previously. The food was fantastic, high quality with a good range of menu items. I can't think of a single bit of the experience that wasn't fantastic - the food was more than reasonably priced as well. Not only was the food good I was... More
