Lovely setting. The terrace is beautiful! Service is good and food is nice. Dated menu, but if you like what they've got, there is no problem! Worth going!

Always a pleasure to visit. Food excellent, service great - they thought I ordered a G&T when I was to finish my wife's goldfish bowl, but realised their mistake and second G&T was complimentary. Will always come back!

I can't believe we haven't been to Alambique during our many visits to the Algarve. We have definitely been missing out. A great setting, fantastic food and excellent service. The menu was extensive with many varied dishes to choose from. The wine list was also extensive and contained many excellent Portuguese and international choices. One of the best restaurants in...

Booked at the last minute, lovely outdoor terrace, food was really good, especially the deep fried sardines, my only downside to this restaurant was the waiters seemed over zealous, wish we could have been looked after by one person and not have had 3 or 4 continuously trying to top us up with drinks, especially the driver's glass

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

Had great service and a lovely meal with close friends we arrived at nine and had a lovely table in the courtyard (had pre booked) it was a packed Friday night in the Algarve lots of large parties and smaller groups. Lovely atmosphere . International cuisine would go again.

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
