Loved it here! So much so we enjoyed our last 2 nights eating out in this place. Good choice on the menu and very reasonably priced! Staff there are lovely and the general ambience is quiet and relaxed but this suited us! Was only us and another couple when we ate there the first night so we were v well looked after this night. The next night it was busy and this was good to see! I had the steak one night!!! Wow!! I loved it! Cooked to perfection I thought and yummy potatoes too... Fish the nxt night was v fresh and altogether perfect!! Would definitely recommend!!!!

We visited Albufeira in August 2011.

After several visits to many tourist traps in central Albufeira, we decided to take a cab to O Lusitano. It was the only restaurant we ate at twice in one week.

The food at O Lusitano is fantastic (especially the Cataplana and Squid), and so is Pedro and his staff. This is a lovely family owned restaurant where pedro, one of the owners and waitors, makes you feel welcome and at home.

We tried this restaurant having read the reviews on this site and weren't disappointed. It was excellent value for money and the owner was very friendly. We went early on a Tuesday night so it was very quiet with only one other table occupied but it was also off season being mid october.
We would never have found this restaurant on our own but it was worth going slightly out of the way for. It is just up the road from the Worms roundabout, about 200yards on the right hand side. Opposite side of road to Pingo Doce supermarket.Plenty of parking in the street outside.
Best part of the meal was a home made carob and caramel pudding. Yummy!
To give you an idea of cost, our meal for two adults and one child with 2 couverts, 3 main meals, 3 desserts and drinks came to 46 euros.

Pedro and his staff welcomed us back to his superb establishment. The food was every bit as good as we remembered it and the cleanliness was still as spotless as before. The service was excellent and the prices were very reasonable. A word of caution if you are a non smoker, smoking is allowed inside.

Great personal service & breathtaking food. Took advise from Trip Advisor and was not disappointed. Lovely mussels to start, golden sea bream for main meal & homemade toffee flavour dessert & icecream to finish
