No no no no. Somethings shouldn't change and this is one, we've been going to this restaurant on the first evening of our stay in albuferia for years. The waiters were a bit quirky but the owner always made you feel welcome, the prawn risotto served in a large soft pittance was worth the visit alone. I was gutted when... More

We sat outside as it was a lovely sunny warm day and a very pleasant member of staff... More

This place served up the worst combination of meals we have ever had in Albufeira in all the years we have been going to this resort. The restaurant was quite and now we know why, the staff were unfriendly and surly.

Ate here a couple of times in the last 10 days, we've been to this restaurant many times in the last few years, it's a pleasant change from the mayhem that is old town, the food is always good and its a nice view and a relaxing place to eat. Can't comment on card payment as I never use one... More

My partner and I went here on our second night in Albufeira. The restaurant itself is nicely presented and in a great location overlooking the ocean. The staff were friendly and helpful When we initially sat down we were by the windows which were open, the wind then picked up and we became quite cold at our table! Thankfully one... More
