“Wonderful food with quality ingredients, nice garden setting with pool”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2012 via mobile

During our family holiday we discovered this great restaurant. The setting in the garden with pool is very nice, personal and relaxed atmosphere. We were very positively surprised by the quality of food: the meat (steak on hot stone) was top quality, potatoes (home grown) were delicious and also our kids loved the garlic bread, chicken and pasta. Perfect for a good quality family dinner or lunch !! We were back 3 times and it was always equally good and definitely the best restaurant we found during this holiday. Prices are also very reasonable, especially for the quality of ingredients.

“Fabulous!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2012

We stayed at Baia Granda hotel, just a ten minute walk from Sunshine restaurant at Sesmarias. We ate out every evening, and Sunshine was by far the best food, and value for money that we experienced - and the standard is pretty high in the area's eateries! This is a family-run restaurant, and they take great care with their service and the quality of their ingredients. Don't miss this hidden gem. You have to try the Turbot or Salmon. Words cannot describe the flavours created in the kitchen at Sunshine! We will definitely go back to Portugal, just to eat at Sunshine.

“Great place for a celebration!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2012

We have just celebrated a 50th birthday party at the Sunshine Restaurant. It is the perfect place for any kind of celebration. The staff were incredible. Nothing was too much trouble! We had lunch, freshly grilled sardines or chicken piri piri with beautiful salads, then a BBQ dinner which was amazing. All fresh home cooked food and great value for money, all served with care and attention, in fabulous gardens with pool.

Would we go back? We do ..... Time and time again!

“Fantastic, freshly cooked food and excellent service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2012

We were lucky enough to be staying in a villa just along the road from the Sunshine Restaurant and we had 2 delicious meals there during the week.

There were 9 of us and no one was disappointed! The mixed meat and chicken & prawn kebabs were very tasty. The Sunshine steak was cooked to perfection. The fish was freshly cooked with choices that included calamari, scampi, Turbot in orange and almond sauce, Golden Bream, and Cod in garlic sauce, all of which received the thumbs up from our family.

The 3 cheese and walnut salad was a lovely way to start the meal along with the 'couvert', which consisted of bread, sardine paté, olives, & delicious garlic carrots. Yummy with a bottle of house red.

The service at the 'Sunshine' was nothing short of excellent! The owners prepared take-away pizzas for us on our first night when we arrived too late to get to the supermarkets. They called taxis for us every time we needed to go into the Old Town or to Algarve Shopping. Nothing was too much trouble!

We would definitely recommend a visit to the Sunshine restaurant where-ever you're staying in Albufeira.
