Mr Freddies is an absolute gem! The outdoor seating area is quite enchanting, the staff most attentive and helpful, though never too much. The food is fabulous - the steaks melt in the mouth, and the menu has something for everyone. We always make a point of visiting every time we visit the Algarve and have never been disappointed!

We visit this area several times during the year and we have never got round to visiting this restaurant, but we will definitely be back. The welcome and attentive service start the meal. The choice of menu is to my taste with a good variation. The couvert is excellent different from the tuna paste, olives and carrots, served in other... More

Visited last year furring the low season & ate inside which we enjoyed so returned. This year was even better. Service and food equally as good as last year. From the moment we arrived at the door we were made welcome and looked after throughout the evening. This time we ate outside in the garden which only added to the... More

As you pull up to the car park out the front of Mr Freddie's you may be forgiven for thinking what you have come to. But going through the entrance gate is like Alice Through The Looking Glass. The garden is a beautiful oasis with its tricking fountain and lovely old vines providing a natural 'roof'. And the staff couldn't... More

We made a point of visiting Mr Freddie's having read all the positive reviews on Trip Advisor. Like others we have driven past it many times but never ventured in. What looks like a very small restaurant is actually much larger when you take the adjoining terrace area into account. This terrace is beautiful covered as it is in Ivy... More

I have been an admirer of Mr Freddie's for a few years now and one thing that stands out among many plusses is the consistency of the cooking and the service. A few weeks ago my family ate in the courtyard for the first time having previously visited either before or after Nuno, the proprietor, moves his operation outside to... More

Having always driven past Mr Freddie's for the past 20 years, this evening we had an exceptional meal here. Service and food were some of the best we've experienced in the area, and it certainly won't be long before we return. Prices we're very fair, given the quality. Superb surroundings, belying it's location by the side of a relatively busy... More

We have been coming to this area of Portugal for over 20 years, but never visited this restaurant. It was recommended to us before, but because of the exterior, we always passed it by. I am so sorry we missed out on this restaurant for such a long time! The courtyard is lovely, great atmosphere, great attentive service. Nuno, the... More

Definitely one of the better restaurants my family and I visited during our second stay in the Algarve! The restaurant, as mentioned in other reviews, seems a bit lost in time and doesn't know whether it wants to be fine dining or slightly more casual. The background music is typically hits from the 70s till the 90s and doesn't, at... More
