I don't normally write reviews on TripAdvisor but have used this site on numerous occasions in the past in various locations and it never let me down before. I have absolutely no idea what this restaurant is doing at #10 in the rankings.

Service consisted of an ill-tempered old man who seemed more concerned with getting us fed and out of there rather than providing a decent service. Like the previous poster we had the meat paraded in front of us - not something that particularly bothered me although it did seem a bit odd and in retrospect there are no guarantees that this was the meat used.

We both just had a mains and ordered the fillet steak. I can easily say that this was the worst fillet steak I've ever experienced. In fact it looked and tasted nothing like a fillet and was drenched along with half the plate in a horrible pepper sauce. The carrots were awful and the potatoes were watery and gooey.

Unfortunately my partner got the runs the next day and we can only attribute it to the steak as we had nothing else to eat or drink that evening. Avoid like the plague.

Absolutely terrible. We went there on our second night - awful service, poor quality food and expensive to boot. When we went entered; we were ignored until we went to take a seat, the service was very slow and we were made to feel like an inconvenience. We waited 20 minutes until we were asked about drinks! Once our drinks arrived we were asked if we wanted a steak which was then paraded in front of our eyes, raw on a plate!
We did indeed order the steak; a fillet which had a strong resemblence to a rib-eye; the pepper sauce wasn't fresh and the potatoes were swimming in cream. The quality just wasn't there for the prices they were charging.
I would avoid this place at all costs!

Dined here several times during our 2 week stay in Albufeira. It is always very busy and you may have to wait a short time for a table (have a drink at the bar across the street, he will let you know when the table is ready) Believe me, it is worth the wait. The food is all fresh and plentiful and the service is excellent.
Superb seafood and gigantic steaks. If you are in Albufeira and want quality food and quality service, do eat here, you will not be disappointed
