“Excellent seafood in exquisite surroundings”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013

We had not been to Alambique for a couple of ears and were pleasantly surprised to find a new terrace area, beautifully landscaped and presented, and were pleased to be shown to a table there. These new surroundings perfectly complement the well established high quality seafood menu. Our mains of monkfish and sea bass, off the bone, were great with the sea bass portions, in particular, being of significant size. Highly recommended if you like seafood. Couvert, mains for 4 and coffee cost €146

“Great Evening”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013

We have been coming to this part of the Algarve for 10 years and love this restaurant. The staff are very friendly and welcoming. We sat outside on the lovely terrace as it was a warm evening. Although it was very busy our drinks arrived very quickly and we did not have to wait long for our food. The Seabass and dourada are always very fresh and the steak is very good. We had a good bottle of wine which the waiter recommended which was not expensive.They do not have a childrens menu but will do a smaller portion,
.
We will definately be coming back !!
