We were staying at the Brisa Sol which is a few minutes away from this restaurant, we walked past it every day on the way to the beach, we looked at the menu but couldn't see a children's menu luckily the waiter came outside and told us that indeed they did accommodate for children, so we thought we would give it a try and we are so thankful we did, the menu is varied and different to many other restaurants, we had starters of stuffed avocado stuffed mushrooms followed by monkfish and kingprawn kebabs, which were lovely and they had peeled the body of the kingprawns which was great as you didnt have to get your fingers dirty doing that yourself, it was served with fried potato cubes and thinly sliced seasonal veg, our son enjoys pasta dishes and they were great at making him a lasagne and chips which was the perfect size for him, we couldn't resist the dessert menu and had profiteroles and 'Moulin Rouge' pancakes which were served warm with vanilla ice cream inside and topped with red berries and flambe, our son had vanilla ice cream, cream and strawberry sauce, the restaurant staff are very friendly and the restaurant has a very relaxed atmosphere and we liked it because they could accommodate our childs needs and even made a creamy pasta and ham dish for him, which we liked as many restaurants only have the usual chicken nuggets, spag bol, burger and chips, fish fingers and chips, it was so nice to actually feel that your needs could be catered for and that the food was not being just reheated in the kitchen, they made us feel so welcome that we returned a further 2 nights and it would have been many more if we didnt have to return home, it is most definitely a restaurant I would recommend and would love to return to again, it is a hidden gem and one we are so glad we had the pleasure to enjoy

Returning to Albufeira recently we absolutely HAD to visit our favourite restaurant and had another great everning with superb food.

The service was as good as ever, in fact we are greeted like old friends now. We visit every time we are in Albufeira and tell all the guests at our apartment to come here, many of whom have taken our advice and left great comments in our Visitors' Book! I am so pleased that Casa do Chefe is racing up the Tripadvisor charts, having been at no 44 at the beginning of the year and reaching 24 by November. Considering it is not in the Old Town or on the Strip, and therefore receives fewer reviews than most, this is fantastic. I hope it continues to rise throughout 2013 as well.

I highly recommend you do have the couverts at this restaurant as the tuna pate is homemade and delicious. I've had many of the starters and could recommend them all! However, if you are a fan of shellfish, please please try the King Prawns - they are to die for! For the first time I ordered the satay chicken this visit and it was divine. The best satay sauce I have had outside of the top Thai restaurants.

All in all, another wonderful evening: lovely decor, friendly service (not just because we have become regulars - all guests are welcomed warmly and looked after well!), great ambience, and superb food!

Please visit this restaurant and then write a review and tell all of your friends to visit too!
