“Gourmet Food in San Pedro”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2013

This family run restaurant has been wowing diners in San Pedro for a number of years. The latest addition to their offering is a list of Taps sized portions of many of the mains - a wonderful idea as you can try a number of different tastes. Run by two brothers and various other family members. Great food, friendly service and an excellent wine list (with expert advice to help you choose the best wine to accompany your food).

“You know what you are going to get”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

The high standards set by Albert & simon have never faltered. The menu rarely changes so you know before setting foot in the restaurant what will be on offer. This to
my mind is the only setback. I would like a little more innovation. That said you will be looked after by simon as soon as you enter. A welcome glass of fizz sets you off on the right track.
Albert's pickled herring starter is a must. Also the slow cooked lamb or pork is a star dish.
Over the years the portions have got smaller in order to maintain sensible prices. At least you have room for the delicious desserts. Lastly simon keeps a first class cellar with wines to suit all tastes and pockets and he is keen to assist when you are undecided on your tipple.

“Best restaurant in San Pedro”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013

When visiting San Pedro, the dinner in Albert&Simon was by far the best. Although the location is rather casual, it still is a romantic place. The food was excellent and service superb. Will visit again when back in San Pedro.

“Some good, some not so good”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013

Cannot complain about the quality of the food, but too many other issues prevent a higher rating.
I sat outside looking at a row of rubbish bins and a busy main road which didn't exactly help any ambience. The service was polite but slow. The food was nice but barely enough to satisfy anyone with an appetite. For this price range I felt a little disappointed.

“Perfect!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013

My husband and I ate here twice on our recent holiday to San Pedro with our three children after reading the reviews on Tripadvisor. We weren't disappointed! The food is definitely world class. It doesn't have the most perfect location, in a suburban street, it gets very busy so perhaps the service may lack at times....but the food is outstanding! I had the scallops with black truffle and Parmesan.....divine! For my main course I had the fillet steak with fois gras and calvados.....one of the nicest dishes I've ever tasted. The wine list has good local and international wines. This restaurant can be expensive, in my opinion worth every penny. There is however a set 3 course menu for a reasonable 29 euros with some excellent selections for those on a tight budget. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting the area.
