This is the second time I have visited this restaurant, the previous was two years ago and it's still as wonderful as I remember. I visited on the 20th Oct this time with my partner. We both had the steak, one mushroom and one peppered. The meat was cooked perfectly and both dishes came with plenty of vegetable sides. We... More

Definitely not the cheapest meal we have when in the area but pretty much always the best. No complaints. Service and food superb. Worth the visit!

No trip to the Algarve is complete without a visit to Alambique. We booked a month in advance and still couldn't have the exact time we wanted! The staff attention, the numbers sharing the experience and the food were as good as ever. And that's top notch. It's not cheap but hell, why should it be when everything is that... More

The restaurant was busy even though it was Monday. On entry we were asked where we wanted to sit and I replied "at a table near a waiter please". It really worked but may not be necessary here as the service was impeccable. We all had prawn starters which were excellent. The various fish dishes were pronounced outstanding and even... More

That was several years ago when were unimpressed by the crinkle cut veg. and jacket potatoes in foil ... all in all we felt it was a bit stuck in the past. However, having heard so many people enthuse about it, we... More

This is the place where you are taken to wonderland . From arrival you are greeted by the most amazing host in restaurant history . If you could bottle this man's charm and talent for entertaining then names like Frank Sinatra or Len Goodman would be ancient history . The food is stupendous.Having eaten in many 3 Michelin star restaurants... More

We have been to Alambique every time we have been to the Algarve over the last 20 years and whilst the restaurant seems to get bigger, the menu remains the same and not in a good way. On my visit this year I found it difficult to choose as there was little to excite, just tried and trusted favourites. I... More
