Was actually looking to go the the restaurant next to this one, however being fussy, didn't want fish for lunch.... The Mrs saw this little gem, go through the back, a lovely American waitress got us a table looking into the sea, had the premium burger, added bacon.... Best burger in albufeira, tasted like Scottish meat from source.... Proper food....... More

The Title says it all. Just really nice to sit on the terrace over looking the sea where the entrance to the marina is, and watch the boats, speedboats, jet skis coming and going with an ice cold beer or wine. Nice chatty staff.
