“Value for money”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 26, 2009

We visit Albufeira 3 or 4 times a year, this restaurant is the best for quality & value, never dissapointed, except when you can't get a table, the wine list / prices are great, don't just go for the house wine, try the more expensive labels, they only go up to 12€, brilliant. We eat there most nights.

“Our secret eatary has been found”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 15, 2009

If you find the Beach Tunnel walk 150yards away from it and you will find O-Catraio on the left .We have been using this place for the past 5yrs and now it´s been found!! For a nice meal at a very fair price it cannot be beaten ,you sometimes have trouble getting a table, (if that happens walk another 25yards away from the tunnel and you will come to Vanquira ,which is also 10/10 ),most of the ex-pats know about it as it is such great value.The average meal cost is 8 to 10 euros a head ,But you get fresh veg and quality meat .ENJOY

“Friendly little place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 21, 2008

A small restaurant about 2 minutes from the town square in old Albufeira.

This excellent place has 32 covers (17 inside) the menu is not large but the food is cooked fresh and you can see the chef preparing your meal. The menu has Tradional Portugese measl and some standard meal choices.

The staff were friendly and made you feel welcome. We ate there four nights and it was good to see eating there, as well as tourists locals and ex-pats. In my view if locals eat there there must be something in it., The wine list was ok as well and i enjoyed the Green wine that was served with my meal. The sweet menu was ice cream and fruit and homemade pies.

The meal was finished with a glass of port as per normal.
