We went here on our first night and only stopped as the pr told us nothing else in the strip would be open. We found this quite over priced for the same quality as else where but the food was nice & the service good.

We were looking for dinner at the bottom end of "The Strip" in Albufeira's New Town area of loud bars and Neon Lights. I wouldn't have expected to eat very well here. We were 'hustled' as happens here outside most restaurants, but the hustler was a well-spoken English man and he made a very convincing sell for Restaurant O Poeta, listing all the possible meal choices off the top of his head, so in we went. It turned out to be very nice indeed. Quite plush, with mature well-trained staff and fine food. Three of us had fish, gilthead bream (Dorada) expertly filleted at the table and I had a mixed kebab, whcih came dangling on a big skewer. I had sauteed potatoes and boiled vegetables, served al dente. The others had boiled potatoes. All agreed that it was an excellent meal in a very establishment - full marks to the staff and the 'hustler'. €66 incl wine for four.

From the moment you meet George outside on the street until you hear tony's jokes this is an experience not to be missed. In between , the food from the sublime beef stroganoff to the amazing sardines.... and never forgetting the beefburger with fried egg for the night you fancy a taste of home ! Please don't leave the strip without visiting O Poeta. I have visited over the past three years in family groups large and small , and on holidays with friends and all have fallen in love with George, the food and the whole package which makes O Poeta the highlight of any holiday in Albuferia. Can't wait to come back soon and see you all . . .
