Lovely food and service. We struggled to get a table last year so this time made sure we booked in plenty of time. We were not disappointed

Been coming here for 13 years and this place is my favourite ! There is stiff competition here, with numerous good steakhouses, but this one is perfect, same staff every year, excellent hosts and a welcome glass of champagne on arrival! Menu hasn't changed in years but I still read it, and always find something to try. In my book,... More

We have been coming to the Algarve for over 30 years and have been here a few times before but this is the first time we have sat outside. The terracing, lighting, tables and setting is the best. All of the staff are polite, attentive but have character. The menu is extensive but given the venue is not overpriced. All... More

In the last 2 years we have been to this restaurant three times, in differing sized parties. We have always found staff, from reception staff on to be helpful and friendly. In my estimation this particular place is middle/upper end of market. On our first visit we were not aware of freebie course of sardines, after ordering sardines as starter.... More

We had a party of 10 for dinner. Decided to jump right in to the main courses as we had two young babies with us. Food was 10/10 and we were nicely surprised at the little free extra.....Grilled Sardine with a tomato salsa. Fantastic atmosphere and it is no wonder the place was packed. Will definitely come back, even if... More

It was my first visit to the algarve and our meal at Alambique following a round of golf at Quinta South was a great end to the trip. The food was amazing, we had a large party (18 persons) and all of us felt the food was top class. i enjoyed a fish appetiser (i forget the name now) which... More

On a recent holiday in the Algarve we were recommended to visit the Alambique restaurant and we were not disappointed. The greeting we received set the scene for a pleasant evening sitting in the outside courtyard. The staff were very welcoming and the quality of the food was excellent and we shall definitely return when we go back to the... More

Clearly a favourite for many ex-pats living in the area, the food was excellent and the service was very good. A most enjoyable meal and the value wasn't too bad either. Will definitely be going back there. But book well ahead to avoid disapointment as it is popular and gets very busy.
