“The best welcome and food in Albufeira.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

From the moment you meet George outside on the street until you hear tony's jokes this is an experience not to be missed. In between , the food from the sublime beef stroganoff to the amazing sardines.... and never forgetting the beefburger with fried egg for the night you fancy a taste of home ! Please don't leave the strip without visiting O Poeta. I have visited over the past three years in family groups large and small , and on holidays with friends and all have fallen in love with George, the food and the whole package which makes O Poeta the highlight of any holiday in Albuferia. Can't wait to come back soon and see you all . . .

“The place to eat in Albufeira”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013

We visited this restaurant in Jan of 2013 and were hooked from the moment we were greeted. George (front of house) greeted us like friends, which we were soon to become and will remain, and he makes sure you have a great time every time. Nothing is too much trouble for him and the same goes for the rest of the staff.
The menu ranges from simple pasta to flambé streaks cooked at your table. Between us we tried most things on the menu and everything was always delicious and fresh. The prices are competitive and great value when you factor in the quality of the food.
Mr Tony (the owner) and his staff really take the time to make sure you have a great eating experience, although he does tell terrible jokes!
We would like to say a huge thanks to George, Mr Tony and all at O Poeta for great food, great laughs and great memories.
Give them a try,you will love it!
