I am a regular here when in Albufeira, was there again in January, one of the few places that remain open all year round, 5 stars for that alone. Great choice of food, quality produce, wine selection very good, I don't know why this establishment is not further up the listings, it is excellent

Give it a try, you won't be dissapionted

Having been to O Catraio on a few occassions I can safely say that each time the food has been absolutely fantastic! They have a great menu selection to pick from and all at a very reasonable price too! Its quite a small place so the service can be slightly slow but its definitely worth a visit as their homemade food is some of the best in Albufeira! If your a seafood fan then you should definitely give their Monkfish Kebab a try - it's my favourite! : ) Overall a great little family run place with great quality food where you get great value for your money!!

At the end of tunnel st . this is a small but very good restaurant. All homemade food and very reasonable. Have a drink in the "rei de petiscos
" bar opposite. It is quirky and very genuine.

Been to this establishment many times over many years, nothing short of excellent each time, well priced, great selection of local & British fare, quality food, great welcome & service, always busy off season, no need for touts to try & wind you in, in my view this place should be on the first page of reviews consistantly, I guess that their standard customer type is not tooled up on the web or with TA ? it's the only reason I can think off that keeps it a hiden secret. Anyway, ate there 5 times this visit & 5 star stuff each time

First time we have eaten here, even though we have passed it loads of times. The bread was really nice, probably the best we'd had. I would rather have been offered a piece of cheese rather than something in a packet and paid more. I had the chicken piri piri which was 5 euros 50, this was very nice, I asked for potatoes instead of chips, it appeared to have been microwaved rather than boiled, but maybe it was because I was the only one having potatoes. My husband had the portugese steak, which he said was delicious. We shared a creme caramel which was lovely. We were given a small port at the end of the meal which was a nice touch.
