Make the effort to search out this restaurant...you won't be disappointed! It is about 10-15 mins drive/taxi ride out of Albufeira heading past the marina and out towards Gale/Salgados. The restaurant doesn't look anything spectacular from the road. It sits on the right hand side of the main road with car park opposite. It sits right on the road and... More

Visited this place as recommended by a local taxi driver. Thankyou taxi driver!! Lovely, clean, relaxed, and great service. Very welcoming and the meals we had were beautiful. Lamb rack, salmon, fresh cod, and chicken: all cooked to perfection and 2 different bottles of wine for the 5 of us to share. Not cheap, but then the standard of food... More

Just had the most amazing meal here. Reviews don't do it justice.... The food was superb. Had scallops to start they were mouth-wateringly good! Black pork for main was so good! Will definitely be back 👍👍

We've been coming here for four years now. If you are in the area, it's a must. If you are near the area, it's definitely worth a trip. The food is always excellent. The owners welcoming always. Fantastic wine advice. From start to finish you won't be disappointed....

We always enjoy our visits to Museu dos Salgados, this time was no exception. After several visits this time it was always difficult to decide what to have from the generous menu. The Monkfish and Prawn Cataplana was absolutely gorgeous, full of flavour and didn't want it to end. The Chefs Steak and Tornedo Roussini were cooked to perfection. Service... More

We were staying all inclusive at the nearby Salgados Palace hotel and decided to have a nice meal out to break the week up. We decided to book as we had heard this place gets very busy. There was no answer when we tried to call but I e-mailed them and they responded within 30 minutes confirming our booking for... More

Table booked for 6.30. Excellent service by waiters and waitresses. Helped pick wine as I'm very fussy this was excellent choice. All meals were enjoyable. Some black mold on cauliflower but I left this anyway. Cod was great. Recommend this and would have again. Not cheap but not overly expensive

Thank Gaynor B
