Decided to try this based off the trip advisor reviews. When I rang on Thursday morning I was told the earliest booking they had was Sunday and was advised to have a very light lunch. Arrived at the restaurant to be met by a lady whose face immediately told me that there was something wrong with our booking (a double... More

My husband booked this in advance of our holiday to celebrate our anniversary. We have been to a lot of fine dining / tasting menu venues in the UK, so it was nice to find one in Albufeira and we were looking forward to a rare, child-free treat. I can't really be too harsh on the place; all the components... More

We enjoyed an excellent 5 course dinner . The service was friendly and efficient . Cost was around 50 euro per person , excluding wine. about double for albufera ,but worth it! Restaurant had a great ambience and I thoroughly recommend it . Essential to book well in advance.

Having reviewed the restaurant online our hotel reception made us a reservation. Amazing food, locally sourced in a wonderful ambiance. Upon arrival the front of house staff were welcoming and friendly, the chef introduced himself and explained the five course tasting menu, providing a detailed explanation of options along with recommendations of wine. We throughly enjoyed each course from the... More

Having seen this was number one and from recommendations from friends we decided we would give this a go being food lovers. Booking is essential, we were extremely lucky to have caught a cancellation that night and watched a good 20 couples being turned away. They only seat 30 people a night to allow a timely and intimate dining experience.... More

From the second we walked in we were greeted by the owners and realised it was a special dinning experience. The food was amazing and priced well given the quality. The hospitality was second to none. The hosts truly cared that you had an amazing experience. Everything they do is done with attention to detail and the guest experience in... More

From the personal, warm welcome to the fabulous culinary experience and the homey decor, we loved this entire-evening experience. For a special night, with truly delectable food, go here (if you can get a reservation). Only 30 guests per evening, this is a memorable and romantic (not at all stuffy) dining experience!

Visited this restaurant, which was recommended by my daughter. Absolutely fantastic. The chef/owner talks you through each course, while his wife works front of house, lovely friendly lady. We visited with family for our 29th wedding anniversary, it was also there 29th year married. We will return next year. Would say book in advance, by email.
