This is in our opinion the best place to eat in Old Albufeira. The food is always excellent and very cheap. Main meal for 2 and a bottle of house red averages 22 euros. Owner Jose and his staff are the friendliest people you would wish to meet, and it's so popular there's normally a queue outside. Once you've been once, you'll know half the customers the second time. It's tucked away just a couple of streets from the main square and well worth the extra 100 metres walk.

Loved this place! Had two meals here both excellent and would reccomend to anyone. Prices are incredibly low and this was our drinks/meals venue of choice everytime we visited Albufeira. Will most definitely be returning next time we are in the area!

Ate here many times during our recent two week stay. Piri piri chicken "to die for", spaghetti bolognese excellent. All very reasonable price including wine and other drinks. Family run, very friendly. Can thoroughly recommend this restaurant located in the Old Town.

Having visited this small restaurant over the years, we found it harder to get a table due to its success. However, we had a lunch and several meals there and the quality of food, service and prices was great- it was clear many customers were loyal as well.
