Went to Alambique last night for dinner.It runs like a well oiled machine and all the staff are very professional and friendly.I did notice that their prices have crept up but the standard remains good.I would advise not ordering starters as the cover was more than enough for us.I had tenderloin of pork in a cream and mushroom sauce which...

Another great meal and great atmosphere. Only negative would be they could do with a refresher of the menu as it's been the same for a long time and this is the only thing that doesn't give it the 5 out of 5 recommendation. Even some different specials on the menu would be great. Going back again in August so... More

Great service, friendly and attentive staff and excellent food make this one of our favourites in vale do lobo. Always being remembered by the staff makes for a lovely evening. Well recommended

As a lone couple a busy bustling Friday night, full tables and 2 large groups arriving at the time bodes badly. Will we be invisible / forgotten, unable to get the attention of staff, our order will be behind the large groups, likely take an eternity to arrive and probably have spent an age on the pass. At Alambique none... More

This restaurant has been going for quite a while now and it continues to deliver consistently year after year. The owner (a character) and his staff are all well versed in the art of looking after their guests and you are always made to feel welcome. The menu is extensive and the wine list too....

We have been going to Alambique for years now. It never disappoints. The welcome is warming. The service is charming. The food is almost astounding. Only negative is the wine list is pounding ! (Rather over-priced). Never-the-less it is definitely worth a visit for dinner, as the inside & outside seating are both splendid. This years meal was not quite... More

Lovely, atmospheric spot - we enjoyed a relaxing aperitif in the front garden before dining outside. Extensive fish menu, well-sized portions, and my main was well cooked and delicious. Highly recommended.

From the moment you arrive in this atmospheric restaurant you are charmed by the staff led by Paulo and Adelino. The atmosphere is sheer magic nearing Parisienne performance🍸 The food is heavenly whilst the wines are of the Gods.😇 Look around and see the great variety of people dining 👌🏿 A Restaurant not to be missed✔️✔️
