“Fantastic Service & Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

We ate here in October. We ordered the roast beef dinner and piri piri chicken. The waiter was very friendly and gave me their wifi code.
The roast beef was simply delicious~ I am really fussy, and the meat was lean and tender, no fat or chewy bits. The portions were massive and there were no lumps in the gravy!!
My chicken was also delicious & a huge portion.
We thought that it was great value for money and can't wait to eat here again next year.

“First time visit was great”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 3, 2012

Sorry to read the previous reviews because our visit (for the first time) was totally the reverse. Ok it may have been at a different time (5pm on a Saturday) and date (13th Oct) but we had just what we fancied...nothing too heavy as we were leaving very early the next morning. so we chose the fish n chips n mushy peas!! (we don't usuallly go to Albufeira and eat English food..but better safe than sorry !) The food was fantastic, one of the best meals, we have to say, of our week. When we visit next June, we will be sure to pop in again and sample something else on the menu.
Congratulations...your restaurant is great.

“Lacklustre”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2012

Typically set up for the tourist. Touristy overpriced basic fayre a greasy cafe could do better. Frozen chips with just as bland food, do not rate this place at all.

“Poor Customer Service”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2012

My Wife & I dned here first week of our Holidays in October, on our arrival we were shown to a table for 4, we had our food which was good value for money. later iin the week we returned, the restaurant was not very busy when we arrived, therefore we asked if we could sit at the same table for 4, no problem. We ordered our starters with bread which never arrived, but worse was to follow, as a group of 7 arrived. The owner proceeded to say sorry and pushed a table for 2 & 4 against ours with one woman at the end facing us. We were not happy, when the co owner arrived to take our plates, my wife said we got no bread and I explained we were not happy with tables being pushed against ours. she got very defensive and rather irritated and said where was I meant to put them. Later she arrived apologising and offering a free drink, too little too late as the dmage was done and the night was ruined, Will not be back, as we dont like being taken for granted and dealt with in this manner. Pity as food is value for money.

“Great home cooked food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2012

Visited Albufiera for the 6th time with my wife 13th to 20th Oct we prefer to stay only B&B so we can try all the different restaurants in the area.
Jason & Paula took over the restaurant summer 2012 and what great food they are serving.
They offer great home cooked food with fresh vegetables and home made mash, and as a few reviews mention try the home made steak pie generous helpings too.
First visit a few days earlier i had the liver and onions and it was fantastic.
We always return to our favourite restaurant to eat on our last night for dinner and this time it had to be here.
The great thing about this restaurant they are not trying to compete with the masses selling all the same food they are trying something different and they deserve to be a success,despite being across the steps from another great restaurant Casa Da Fonte.
Good luck to the future form both of them and i am sure this restaurant will continue to get great reviews from TA.
