We travelled via train from Fuseta to Albafuria for a day out. Both arrived starving. The Rock Cafe was rammed, always a good sign!!! Found a seat and ordered breakfast. Very friendly, English speaking staff. A superb breakfast for 5 euros each. Quality!! Had a fantastic stroll around Albafuria and went back to the Rock for cocktails. Mega cocktails for... More

here you can listen to great rock bands. The bar is always full and lively. You can seat inside or outside, facing the main square.

With the wide selection of bars in the square it can be very hit and miss. But this bar has really good staff, great location and good live music. The outside heaters are also a bonus at this time in the year.

We went for a walk into the old town and stumbled across this place. We started with cocktails that were only €5, I can recommend the raspberry mojito! And then we decided to have something to eat. My brother had a burger and me and my sister went for calamari, all dishes were lovely and portions were large. Staff were... More

Picked this restaurant at random really and it turned out to be a huge mistake, lacklustre service and dreadful food. The waiter was insisting we sat on the balcony upstairs but the tables were squashed so close to one another and a lot of people were smoking, he seemed annoyed when we asked to sit inside the restaurant which was...

We came here as nowhere else was open. Staff were rude and we were put on a squashed balcony. After struggling what to pick I had the steak (which was cooked all wrong) my boyfriend had the ribs which were tough. After I finished and my boyfriend was still eating they rushed my plate away and all the condiments and... More

This is a nice bar. The atmosphere inside & out is good, and the service is good as well. There is a lot to look at on the walls, all of musical interest. They also play a good selection of music and show sport on the telly.
