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

This restaurant is likely to please some and not others, you either really like this type of place or you do not. I can imagine a serious foodie being pretty irritated with a menu that looks as if it was conceived in the early eighties and has remained unaltered ever since. The best dish we had was the clams, which... More

Looks can be deceiving. Mr Freddie's doesn't look much from the outside but as soon as you walk into the courtyard where visitors dine there is a nice atmosphere with attentive waiters. The food was one of the best meals we have had during our stay in Portugal. There are some nice touches during before/after the meal. I would recommend... More

We are big fans of Casa de Quinta (see review) but thought we'd give Mr Freddie's a try. We were not disappointed! Peaceful terrace where we were looked after by very pleasant but unobtrusive staff serving really excellent food in superb surroundings. The extras before and after the meal are unusually generous, as was the bottle of port left on... More
