“Fab food and Great value for money! Wished we found it sooner!”
Reviewed August 20, 2013

We were in portugal for 5 days in August, staying in Vila Petra. One evening I decided to go on trip advisor and look for nice restaurants for us to eat in. I read the reviews and knew it was only a 5 minute walk from where we were staying. We were a bit hesitant at first. Don't be put off by the look of the place. we got a seat outside. It was quite busy and when we first went in we noticed some local Portuguese eating in there so we knew it had to be good. Once seated we were shown the menu. For three of us, we got bread, a starter each (soup or salad), a main, a dessert and we each ordered a glass of wine and water. They brought us out a large jug of wine! And we werent even charged for the water! the white wine was delicious! For the main i had the chicken which was lovely, my friends had to cod and the pork. we all thoroughly enjoyed our meal. The total cost of the bill was 22.50 euro!!! 7.50 each! Exceptional value for money, you wont get this value on the strip or the old town! Most nights we paid 20/30 each just for a main and wine. Its off the beaten track but easy to find. We went on a Saturday night and the atmosphere was excellent, Irish and English families also eating there. We did feel guilty though so we left a good tip. I would highly recommend this place and when i return to portugal we will all be going back! There is plenty of choice for mains and dessert. Go you won't be disappointed!

“Best in Albufeira”
Reviewed August 13, 2013

We found this restaurant on Tripadvisor. We have been visiting Albufeira for 15 years and were looking for a change from our usual eating places. We also discovered that Il Cappucino is very close to where we stay which made it even better - our only regret is that we didn't find it sooner. The food was of a very good standard and the choice for main courses and desserts was absolutely amazing. It's a very homely wee place with lovely owners who make you feel very welcome. If you go there, please leave a generous tip because the price makes you feel as if you are stealing the meal.

“Nice restaurant”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

We stayed very close by so ate here twice.
The first time was late on the first night we arrived and the food and staff lovely
The second was later in the week and much earlier in the evening, we were also joined by another couple from our hotel, I have to say the food wasn’t as good second time around but the staff were just as friendly.
