“Good quality and value for money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012

There are so many food outlets on the Strip that it's hard to decide where to eat each night, we ate here and I felt compelled to review it as the value and quality of the food were exceptional.

We opted for the set meal which included 3 courses and a drink for 9.5 euros, the restaurant is situated at the top end of the strip furthest away from the beach. It's a bit quieter here and we weren't accosted by touts drumming up custom, we were left to view the menu at our leisure, the proprietor then arranged a table for the 6 of us outside.

Most of us had the garlic bread to start and one had the tomato soup, we then had between us, spag bol, lasagna, spare rib, chicken piri piri and the braised steak. The meal sizes were very large in fact the braised steak could of fed a family of 4 let alone a meal for one! We then had the pana cota and the house special, a trifle like concoction. Within the price we shared a jug of wine and 3 large beers, it was good quality food served with a smile, if that's what you're looking for you can't go far wrong here.

“Sorry, overrated.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2012 via mobile

Looked forward to trying this due to good reviews but we were disappointed.
I ordered from the vegetarian menu and chose a vegetable curry but when it came it contained chicken.
My sister ordered chicken piri piri but got plain chicken & chips. When she asked about the piri piri they said oh yes you add that yourself without offering the piri piri to her even at that point. She had to say well can I have it please and was then handed some spicy oil. She didn't enjoy it at all.
We didn't go back.

“A hidden gem : )”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2012

We have been to Albufeira twice in last two years and have eaten here on both of our visits, we loved it that much that we made this an every night occurence as it was that nice .

The staff were really friendly and made us feel really welcome, we mostly were served by the lady ( apologies but cannot recall her name ) she works really hard and was really lovely to speak to.

The food was out of this world plenty to choose from would recommend the braised steak it comes like a stew really tender meat and plenty of veg, this was of the set menu, worked out about £8.00 for a three course meal. I must also point out that we have two young boys who were entertained with the staff and also the play area they have got at the back.

“excellent value and friendly restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2012

found this restaurant by chance looking for another one, we could not have had better value and lovely meal for the price, the set menu for 9.50 euro including a drink is excellent value for families on a budget, and very friendly people. i would like to see how some people live when they moan about this place, they are usually the ones who just live on junk food and cannot be bothered to cook themselves.

“Fabulous food at a great price,excellent service too!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2012

A great meal at a great price. We didn't try this restaurant until the day before coming home, we probably would have eaten there every night otherwise! A three course meal with drink for 9.50 Euro. Great choice...Chicken Piri Piri was fab, as was the Hake Fillet and Swordfish. The desserts were lovely too. Service fabulous,really attentive. Would definately recommend.At the quieter end of the strip too so even better.
