This is excellent restaurant! The location is great and easy to find on tunnel street, one of the main streets in the old town. It was recommended to us by the hotel, but we said nahhh we know what all of that is about. But when we went there, and we saw what people were eating, we decided to give... More

They say that you should never go back and in this case it was true. We visited this restaurant when we were last in Portugal about five years ago and it was memorable. We were so looking forward to going back and we had fond memories of the delicious home made bread and lovely fish pate that we so enjoyed... More

My family and I have had the pleasure of eating at Bailote's several times during our stay in Albufeira, at various times throughout the day, and I cannot praise enough the people there, the food they offer, and the restaurant itself. My 9yr old daughter and I are vegetarian...no problem, delicious meals any time of day suitable for vegetarians! My... More

My partner enjoyed a good steak here and I had chicken in a mushroom sauce very good. We had onion soup for starters along with a glass of wine and a beer all for 39 euros

This is a restaurant with a very nice feel but was rather empty so not much atmosphere. Drinks were served quickly but we waited an age for food orders taking and half the stuff on the menu was not available. The food took another age to arrive but was reasonable when it came. Won't be rushing back.

we visited this restaurant for dinner on the last night of our holiday, as they say the best is always last, . The quality of the food is excellent and is cooked to order. The staff were very polite and pleasant. It was so good we returned for brunch before our flight. We will definitely be returning to eat here... More

By chance I asked a couple, who were about to go home, if they could recommend a good place to eat, without hesitation they named Bailote..how lucky were we?? We went there on our first night, found it quite easily, walking from the tunnel it is on the left hand side as you walk towards to town. Friendly,welcoming and with... More
