Carlos is such a nice welcoming man. So hard working he never stops. Drinks very reasonable. We visit here every night every time we visit albufeira. Really nice bar on the quieter end of the strip. Well worth a visit

Located at the top of the strip but well worth the walk if you want a grey atmosphere and drinks at great prices. We visited during the World Cup and watched the England V Tunisia game. Loads of screens and very friendly

Been several times over the years to visit Carlos. Very good sports bar for the football and in the evenings he plays, by request, music videos. Always quite busy with many regulars. Good measures and prices. Will be back !!
