Best value for money I have ever had. My wife and I had the two for one deal here. I had the battered cod chips and mushy peas. The fish was falling off the fork and the chips were cut potatoes not processed rubbish. My wife had grilled chicken but she claimed it was a bit rubbery. Had a couple... More

I booked a night in this busy restaurant based on the excellent reviews I had previously read. We were in no way disappointed, as the quality of the food plus service were both great. In fact, the mixed grill for 2 was so big, we had to take half of it away which was used for sandwiches for all 4... More

Friends told us to try this place as they love it. Not my kind of thing as I prefer to steer away from the usual foods you would eat at home on holiday. But there is so much choice that you can basically have anything! The whole family loved it, definitely a great place to take kids too as there's... More

The quality and portion size of food in this restaurant is very impressive. My husband ordered garlic mushrooms, expecting them to be breaded but they weren't - mushrooms sitting in a dish of garlic butter with bread to accompany so they were not to his taste. However due to the huge main course portion size, it would have been hard... More

I've been here again, and I still in love with this place and food. Busy busy place, but always one table for us. A complement to the kind Portuguese waitress, and all the staff, they are amazing!

Walked here on spec on our second night but couldn't get in so booked for the following Saturday night. So i would really recommend booking for busy times!! Myself and my wife shared a mixed grill that was really nice and very filling, my eldest daughter had ribs which she said were "very good" (high praise indeed) although my youngest... More

We come here every time we visit Albufeira- the food is delicious! You have to book quite a few days in advance as it's that busy. Going today to try the Sunday roast- can't wait! The service is great too- friendly staff & very attentive. Prices are very reasonable with two meals for €15. House wine is lovely too!
