We arrived when it was very busy and with no reservation. They managed to get us a lovely table next to a heater (was a bit chilly). The staff were extremely nice and attentive, and couldn't do more for you. Food was excellent, we all decided on 3 courses for €17, which was a great deal. Couverts were delicious, especially the garlic carrots! 3 of us had the seafood paella, a huge portion which was beautiful. Make sure you order the coconut panna cotta, awesome!!!! The meal was finished off with a complementary glass of port which was the perfect end to the meal. Couldn't recommend this place enough!

We shared the main course Prawn Curry as a starter. Not a great choice of starters on the menu. It probably would have been better to served as 2 half starter portions. We both then wanted the fillet steak pepper sauce with the prawns, which was on the menu, but the waiter said it was a mis print and that the fillet steak only came as a special in fish sauce with prawns, mussels and clams. Couldn't understand why chef couldn't just give us the other option. Ah little bit more pricey than other restaurants in Albufeira, but worth it.

Good value set meal with fresh variety of choices - paella plentiful, sea bass filleted perfectly, chicken kebab definitely one of the best. Very attentive service but not over the top! Well worth a visit.

This restaurant is amazing, although busy the staff are attentive and you definitely don't feel to be rushed or anything. Our table had 3 courses and drinks, all courses were superb, the cataplana with monkfish and prawns was amazing. My boyfriend's mum had cod which she enjoyed so much and being a fussy eater that is a huge compliment!
But for me the dessert was incredible, brownie like nothing I've had before and boyfs mum had banana split which was in her words amazing!
For the service, quality of food and drink and the amazing view I'd highly recommend Cais Velho for at least one meal of your holidays bit more expensive than others but so worth it.
We are hoping to return tonight for our last holiday meal and I would never normally do that on holidays!
