“We want to pick this restaurant up and move it to our hometown.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013

We first visited this restaurant in 2010 and, having enjoyed it so much, we have returned on numerous occasions since. During our last trip to the Algarve, we were based in Alcantarilha and ate in close proxmity to our villa in the local village and Armacao de Pera. However, no trip to Portugal would be complete without a couple of visits to Eduardo's to sample the best Chicken piri piri around. On our last visit, we were pleasantly surprised to see that the Chicken piri piri is now served with chunky homemade chips.

It is unusual to find a restaurant that remains consistently excellent over a number of years, but that is precisely what Eduardo and his family have achieved.

As well as offering the best Chicken piri piri around, Eduardo's also provides a number of excellent alternatives such as, the fillet of beef, pork fillet, salmon, lamb shank and many more.

The dessert menu also never disappoints. The Algarvian Delight/Delicacy is the highlight, but the creme brulee, chocolate mousse and pancakes with apple sauce are also delicious.

Eduardo then kindly offers a complimentary dash of port to conclude the dining experience perfectly.

We look forward to returning to our favourite restaurant on the Algarve again soon and would recommend anyone who is heading to Albufeira or the surrounding areas to pay a visit there too. You will be hooked!

“Family Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

Excellent meals, with superb service from Eduardo and his family. The quality is first class with typical Portugues atmosphere. The sweets are to die for. Will return here on our next visit to Albufeira.

“Excellent value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013 via mobile

We ate here a couple of nights ago based on the existing reviews on TA. We were not disappointed! The hospitality, quality of food and value for money was excellent. We were handed a menu which looked quite reasonable price wise. We were then told about the 'Tourist Menu' which is what we opted for. We both had prawn cocktail to start with and my wife had grilled fillets of salmon and sea bream, and I had the lamb shank. Both dishes were excellent served with vegetables. But here's the amazing thing, including drinks (I had a large beer, my wife had a fresh orange juice) the bill came to €25 !! This restaurant is very modest in its situation and decor but a real gem serving excellent, reasonably priced food. Very understated!

“Great value and service with lovely local food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013

Had walked past this restaurant previously but not been tempted in because it doesn't look much from the outside, however we decided to give it a try following the reviews seen on TA. We weren’t disappointed and subsequently returned again another evening during our stay.
Both the owner, Eduardo, and his son, made us feel very welcome and were helpful with food suggestions. The food was all fresh, cooked to order and well presented, my husband opting to go for the tourist menu which was great value and very filling. I went for the garlic prawns for starter and was drawn to their Chicken Piri Piri which was served with a lovely side salad and home made chips - so much so, I had it all again on our next visit!!
Its on our list of favorite restaurants in Albufeira now and look forward to eating there again on our next visit
