Great little restaurant away from the tourist hordes. Friendly & prompt service. We both ordered fish which was very tasty. Prices about the same as the old town restaurants but the food is so much better here. Finally we had a lovely meal in Albufeira.

We had read about this restaurant in a 'Top 10 Restaurants' guide that came up on Google. It was very reasonably priced (billed as budget in the guide) and the food was freshly cooked and delicious. The restaurant is tucked away up a side street but only a few minutes walk away from the end of 'The Strip'. (If you... More

Unbeatable food. Will definitely return at the first opportunity. Pedro and his staff are really friendly and it's easy to see why this is one of the finest restaurants in Albufiera.

We were here both night's on our short visit this time. As this is a fantastic place to eat, awesome food, fresh and full of flavour. Great atmosphere and kids are welcome and looked after too. Thanks to Pedro and his team for another enjoyable couple of nights dinning, highly recommend you experience this resturant too.

O Lusitano is an absolute gem. Great food (particularly the traditional dishes), great wine, great atmosphere and wonderful, friendly, knowledgeable staff. It really is my favourite restaurant and very cheap for the quality and atmosphere. It is very child friendly -something which you can see us very much appreciated by the largely local clientele. Simply I can not praise it... More
