Looking for somewhere nice to eat close to our villa, we were daunted by ‘The Strip’ which really is not our cup of tea. However, through the power of Trip Advisor, we found The Market which is at the south end of the Strip and...we really were not disappointed. Upstairs and an outside table, we were greeted by attentive and friendly staff who invited us to order a drink whilst we waited for our table to be cleared. An Espresso Martini and a different one for his-nibs, were served quickly and tasted good. We ordered the beef koftas and suckling pig croquettes as starters to be followed by the tenderloin fillet and slow-cooked octopus. Now, this is where the only less than positive comment comes - whilst the croquettes were really tasty, the beef koftas were a bit meh. I suppose us expecting them to be warm when they are served cold was a surprise but this is the only part of the whole meal we wouldn’t order again. The croquettes superb, the fillet perfect, the octopus tender and the puddings amazing. My ‘Market des fleurs’ (or something like that) was served in a lightbulb buried in a bucket of lit-up ice…regardless of the fancy delivery, the cocktail itself was one of the best I’ve had. Really excellent food and brilliant service - completely unexpected considering its surroundings and definitely somewhere we’d go back to. Well done ‘The Market’ and thank youMore

Came here with my friends, the restaurant was quite busy but we had booking. As we were waiting on the bar the bartender was making sangrias and he gave us a little bit to try!!! It was absolutely amazing, we ended up ordering 2 jugs.!...I don’t remember the name of the bartender but thank you! The service was good everyone was attentive and polite. The food was absolutely amazing, they have the best octopus and steak that I’ve ever tried in my life. The salmon was also very very good. Thank you so much for the experience we will be back.More

What can I say? We had THE most amazing meal. Steak, wine, dessert. Fantastic. The waiters are very attentive without being in your face. They were friendly but knew the perfect balance between serving professionally and having fun with you. Nothing was an issue this...couldn’t have been a better night/meal/restaurant. Did I say the food was INCREDIBLE? Best restaurant in town. We’ll be back before the holiday is over!More

I had picked out this restaurant to try before I arrived in albufeira. To be honest I dismissed it due to its location at the start of the strip. I was very surprised and delighted I decided to give it a go. The guy in...the strip trying to drum up business also nearly put me off. Pointing out the fish and steak, which I could read for myself…. The restaurant itself is top notch. The waiters were extremely attentive and professional. Food was fantastic I would recommend the starter sharing plate, the ribs and the blonde desert. The portion of fries were a tad skimpy thoMore

This is the stand out restaurant in Albufeira. Whilst the prices reflect that to an extent, they are justified. We had a 3 course meal and everything was delicious. If you are looking for somewhere special or a guarantee of quality food, this place is...a safe bet.More

Great food, great cocktails, lovely staff. Getting to The Market restaurant having to walk down the stripe you think is this going to be good, but once upstairs in the restaurant it’s lovely. Would eat there again.

Really great atmosphere and lovely waiters. Speedy service and food was to die for! Worth noting it might be worth booking in advance as it can be busy but they found a table for us at peak times!
