Don't be fooled by the exterior of this simple restaurant with a simple menu very like all other menus. The place is a family run traditional little restaurant, no frills, sitting close together enjoying exceptional food together with great service. We both had steaks, I had Rib eye with 'gratinated' potatoes with veg and husband had fillets steak with pepper sauce and same trimmings. My steak filled the entire (large) plate and was absolutely the tastiest tenderest steak I've ever had. Husbands was equally fabulous. Also traditional homemade desserts, (no sparklers in sight! ) but you'll struggle to finish them!
And was a good 10 euros cheaper than on seafront for one meal alone, and double the size and quality
Absolutely outstanding!

Been a regular at this restaurant over the last three years and the quality of the food just hits the spot every time. Tried Lamb Chops, Rib Eye, Fillet steak, and liver this time, all were fantastic. Go hungry because you will be full after you have eaten. Opposite Cavern Bar, and up the street from Geordie Bar. Thanks again Rui for the food and service and for your honesty when I gave you two €50 notes by mistake. Don't miss this restaurant.

We came here on the first night of our holidays as our friends had been several times before and we're eager to return, I can't say I was disappointed ,A table wasn't available immediately so we were asked to go to a nearby pub and they came and got us when it was ready. The food was excellent salmon was the best I've ever had and the steaks just melted in your mouth. Don't go until your hungry as the portions are huge. Vania and her dad work very hard making everyone feel welcome and the restaurant has a lovely atmosphere with others diners chatting to you. We will definitely be returning when next in Albufeira.

This restaurant is the best for food quality and service. If you like big portions and steak that melts in your mouth then you have to visit this restaurant. We visited 3 times and every time the service was the best we had received and the food is to die for. I had grilled salmon one night and it was huge and tasted so good. My partner and our 2 teenage lads had the ribeye steak one night and they loved it, it was so tender. Everyone who visits Albufeira old town should go to this restaurant!
