Classic dining

From outside not easy to see what you can expect. Very well prepared classic dishes, exxellent sauces all accompanied by a friendly service. A sensitive update of the decoration would be a good idea.

Went to Mr Freddie's for the last meal of our little break and it was superb. We have been previously and wasn't disappointed. We didn't have a starter as we knew the covers are very tasty and this time we wanted to sample their desserts as we couldn't fit them in last time. One of us had the duck which... More

Paid a visit because of Trip Advisor status. Granted it was quiet and out of season but I was disappointed. The hosts were charming but it was lacking atmosphere . The food was adequate but nothing that would merit a return trip

Some things never change in the Golden Triangle of eateries that are located in and around Almancil and the consistent high quality of service and food provided by Mr Freddie's restaurant is one of the most reliable. Nuno, the proprietor, is not only the most charming host, but he is also a helpful and accomplished sommelier who will ensure that... More

We love this place, from the welcome at the door to the goodbye as you leave, the experience and the food means we return time and time again. And will continue to return on our next visit to Portugal. I highly recommend Mr Freddie's.

Have visited Mr Freddie's on multiple occasions when in the Algarve and it never fails to disappoint. The service is second to none with a lovely menu of traditional dishes - fried prawns to start are particularly excellent. The meal is always littered with lovely little touches from the staff, including a complimentary glass of Port at the end. One... More

Arrived to a lovely welcome. The evening could not have been better. From start to finish we could not have enjoyed it more. To start we were greeted by friendly attentive staff who felt more like friends. The food was sublime. Some of the best we have ever had. We loved the ambience and especially the music which took us... More

On arrival I thought the décor was a little dated. The warm greeting and service from the staff was excellent. my wife and I both had 3 courses. The food was as good as we have eaten in the Algarve. What made it 5* for us was the little touches such as the cover charge which included lovely bites to... More
