“Superb”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2013

At last we found a good restaurant in Albufeira. We had given up on finding any decent food on our holiday when we discovered this gem right beside our apartment. It was very busy when we arrived( they don't take reservations) but we waited in the bar across the road and they came and collected us about 20 mins later. We were able to take our drinks from the bar with us to the restaurant which was handy. We all had steak, 2 fillets and 1 rib eye. The rib eye was huge full of flavour and cooked to perfection. The fillets were also huge and again cooked to perfection just as we ordered, The steak came with gratin potatoes and carrots which made a great change from the endless frozen chips and limp salad we got in every other Albufeira establishment . Meal for 3 with good wine was 63 euro ( we were too full for dessert but they looked good) . Restaurant run by efficient father and daughter team. Best restaurant we could find in Albufeira.

“Incredible”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 11, 2013

Great food, great service and good prices. Its round the corner from the old town strip area, up one of the side streets. No idiot outside trying to "pull you in" and no tacky pictures of the food.

English menu and Portuguese. The english menu looks good but a local ex pat advised us to order off the portuguese menu as everything on that menu is bought fresh the same day. Wow, my mate got a steak bigger than his head, cooked beautifully, and i got one of the best mixed kebabs i've ever tried. Fresh, tasty, succulent, perfect. Very good atmosphere and a fantastic service.

Will go here on my next visit.

“Quality food with excellent service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 11, 2013 via mobile

This is my latest review of Restaurante O'Manjar. It was a welcome return as the food is as excellent, portions as generous, steaks as huge, and service as attentive as I remember. The price is unchanged from last year too.

The only difference is that the restaurant is less busy. This is good news for the customers as it is extremely easy to acquire a seat with immediate hospitable service; not so good for the restaurant.

I highly recommend this innately Portuguese restaurant for its fantastic cuisine. It's slightly out of the square - nice and quiet. DO NOT EAT IN THE SQUARE WHEN THIS FABULOUS RESTAURANT IS A STONES THROW AWAY! It's quantity over quality there.

Please be aware that most of the top restaurants are either not Portuguese or expensive. This restaurant puts the likes of Tres Palmieres to shame.

“Great traditional local food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2013 via mobile

Best steak in town. During our week in Albufeira myself and some friends ate here twice. The fish was great the first time but the steak second time was excellent. The restaurant does not look much from outside but food is great and we went there for good original Portuguese food. The staff were also great
