Walked past this place a few times whilst going to sherrys Irish bar which is 50yards away. Enjoyed a lovely fillet steak in peppercorn sauce with chipped potatoes. House white was the best we've had on this 2 weeks holiday and was only €10. Bread and butter came before the starters with tuna and carrot which was a Tad strange... More

Service here was so slow. We got a table at 8pm, we weren't even offered drinks until 8.30 and the food didn't arrive until 9.20. It's like they cook for one table at a time. Everyone was waiting forever. When we sat down I was looking around and no one except for one table had been served anything- not even... More

Another excellent restaurant tucked away in a side street of the main square in oldtown, It was bust the night we visited but when we returned from a drink in Paulos across the road we were seated with no delay. Staff are very attentive and will explain each dish but will not recommend any particular dish saying it is your... More

Love this place!! one of the only restaurants that make you feel special, the small staff in this place only takes booking or take table to what they are capable of serving, any night we have gone they are turning loads away. Food is freshly prepared and cooked and and is not a big menu but never stuck for choice.... More

After reading the reviews on this site, we decided to have a meal at Bistro. The owners /hosts are friendly and the food was fantastic. From the bread to the desert everything was delicious. We were very fortunate to get in without a reservation but the restaurant was full and I would suggest making a reservation. The meal came to... More

Stumbled across this restaurant on a night out in Albufeira and was extremely pleased with the overall experience. My girlfriend and I ordered starters (goats cheese and portobello mushrooms) and for main we opted for the pork and sea bass (chef's special). The food was excellent and very reasonably priced. There was a bit of a wait but it was... More

We discovered this restaurant last year and visited for five out of our seven nights. This year, we have already been twice and haven't yet found anywhere better. It is excellent value for money and the food is very well cooked. It's a lovely family run business and the two waiters who are brothers can't do enough for you. Excellent... More
