“gastronomical delight”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

My husband and i have just returned from a long weekend in the Algarve .This restaurant was recommended by the owner of a local beachside restaurant .We were in no way disappointed, from arrival on the red carpet to our dessert and departure our experience was 5star.Nothing was too much trouble, my husband not being able to decide on which sauce to accompany his steak was offered both .The food was excellent ,theres usually something to pick up on however small, but we couldn t find a negative .The staff are all efficient and courteous and we had a very warm welcome.The surroundings are both comfortable and elegant.We would go back without hesitation and recommend to our numerous friends that travel to this area.

“Excellent”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

We went to Alambique a few years ago and were looking forward to our next dining experience there. It was a wonderful surprise. The food was very good, staff was excellent. A nice Algarvian atmosphere.

Great restuarant, comfortable surroundings and great food! Great during the summer, a pre dinner drink in the garden and then to eat outside!

“Perfection Personified!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

Went to Alambique in the summer this year, every thing about it is first class and on par (on a golfing holiday) with the best Restaurants ive ever been to.
Food to die for, setting perfect and service second to none.
