“Best meal we had all week”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013

This was the best restaurant we found in Albufeira. The food was delicious, the service was quick and their was wide range of reasonably priced drinks in a lovely atmosphere complete with a rooftop terrace with sea views. Would love to return and would encourage all to go.

We had walked passed this restaurant on a few occasions but after reading other reviews on trip advisor decided to go in and we were not dissapointed!
Food was delicious, staff were extremley friendly & value for money was amazing. Make sure you check this place out.

“Excellent restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

This is the only restaurant we went to twice on a recent visit to Albufeira. It was close to our hotel so really handy. it was clean and modern and the staff were really friendly. The sea views on the first floor terrace are lovely but once it gets dark you don't get the benefit of it. The food highlights were chicken breast with honey and cognac, and pork tenderloin, both served with veg and sauted potatoes. The wine was good and on the second night we were able to get half bottles, one red and one white to suit our own preference. The price for main, dessert, drinks (wine for 2 adults and soft drinks for the child) was around 55-60 euro, which compared to a few other restaurants we visited was excellent value. We also had drinks downstairs which is quiet and laid back, compared to the Strip. Will definitely go back when we return to the Algarve.

“One of the best in Albufeira”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

This was my third visit to Albufeira but my first to Invictus. It wont be my last. 15 euros for the 'tourist menu'...we had garlic bread, steak with peppercorn sauce and chocolate fondant pudding with ice cream. Also included was a wine or beer. The food quality was fabulous, steak was one of the best I have had, served with sauted potatoes and fresh veg. A definite place to return on my next visit to Portugal.

Make sure you sit on the restaurant terrace upstairs for lovely views before sunset.

“Surprise Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

We went for a drink here and didn't think too much of the menu when we looked at it then saw all the good reviews on here so decided to give it a go.

Restaurant is lovely upstairs, we sat on the terrace which is very much needed in the heat of August! We had 2 vegetarians in our party which we struggled with all holiday as not many choices. We had vegetables with 'tortilla rice' which was rice cakes like snack-a-jacks?! Bit strange so we ordered a side of chips, but the veg itself was the best we had on holiday.

We also had a chicken and mushroom special, and a chicken pasta, both which were delicious.

The service was friendly and attentive, can't fault it, really wasn't expecting such a nice restaurant to be hidden above a bar!
