Alambique is great at any time of the year- New Year is a great experience. The food is superb and the service attentive but not overpowering. Great ambiance-out or inside. Highly recommend. Not cheap but you certainly get value for money

We come to Portugal every year and Alambique is the first and last restaurant we love to bookend our holiday. Very friendly staff and the food is always delicious. Nice big tables to fit a big family.I would recommend this to anyone looking for a great night out.

This is the third consecutive summer we have been to this restaurant and have had a lovely dinner every time. Worth booking for the night you want too instead of being disappointed.

Classy restaurant, we sat in the garden and had a lovely table. Pepper steak was delicious as were the lamb chops and monkfish stew. Excellent wine list as well. Restaurant was very busy, but there were plenty of staff to look after us. Worked out €75 each, so not cheap, but we felt worthwhile.

we have been coming to this restaurant for many years and always found the service to be exceptional and the attention given to you as a guest the big differentiator to several other good, expensive restaurants in this area. Sadly, we noticed the service wasn't as good when we came last year putting it down to booking on a Saturday... More

A lovely evening in a beautiful setting. Food was high quality but, slightly surprisingly, prices were in line with the local alternatives. Very attentive service at start of meal tailed off somewhat as it became busy and this would appear to be a restaurant which will be full every night during the season.

Great selection on the menu, nice surrounds, good service. A great place to take the family for a meal. Priced well and very central. An easy dining experience without too much expectation. It would definitely make the list of restaurants to go to, if I had five nights and seven days in the Algarve
