“Tourist menu unbelievable value for money and good service.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

We try to stay away from the tourist menus but you can't argue with the value for money. €10.50 each for a starter, main, coffee and pudding. Bread and olives with the starter is also included. Food was of good quality although it could have been a bit hotter at times and the portions were much better than at most other places we ate at. Our waitress was friendly and the food was consistently nice. I would definitely return to this restaurant rather than similar ones in albufeira.

“It's worth looking for”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

We came across this restaurant when we were out during the day, we sat and had a drink, locals were eating there so we checked out the menu and the dishes coming out of the kitchen. We returned that evening and were not disappointed, service was speedy and friendly and they were pleased to see we had returned. Food was fresh and ideally cooked, 1/2 bottle of there own h/wine was 4 euro and very good. Prices are very reasonable and they do offer a fixed price menu too. It's at the end of the street and it's certainly worth finding, so good we returned to celebrate my friends birthday, this evening they were very busy but still found time to sing happy birthday and if you think they are full, pause a moment and they will bring out more tables/chairs. A well run family business.

“Good, tasty and cheap.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013 via mobile

This restaurant is a little gem. They do a tourist menu of which I have attached a copy of. Not a great variety but everything I have ordered has been cooked perfectly and without waiting too long. They offer 5 courses for 10.50 euro which is excellent value and all freshly made.

“For every day eating”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2013

This is a family run restaurant that is cheep and cheerful.

Not the most comfy seating but the food is always good (especially in the quieter winter months)
