“Best value during week in Albufeira”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2014

Went here one evening during a weeks hols in Albufeira....in a fairly remote spot....but the food and service was very good..had clams in a garlicky herby sauce and a whole sole cooked on the bone...all seafood was fresh, well cooked and simply presented....two starters, two whole fish for mains, a child's meal, bottle of wine, liquers, espresso and an Irish coffee for around 60euro...would definitely recommend as an alternative to the restaurants in the Old Town or down the strip...cheaper, better food and a lot more relaxed atmosphere

“Fantastic still- should be no.1”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2014 via mobile

This place overall when you add up value/service/quality should be number one on trip advisor. Now I've eaten in some of the best restaurants in the places I've been and some right dives, but this place never changes the quality of food-excellent, service-great and flavours-awesome, it's a no rush restaurant with perfect time between meals to allow your food to go down. As an overall with the cost of the food this place should be no.1 great prices, some of the places in the top 10 are ridicules bar food at best, please don't miss this place, worth finding out, just up from the worms island near pingo dolce

“Well worth a visit!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2014 via mobile

Visited here with friends and family. Very welcoming on arrival. Shared the monkfish with my wife and it was really tasty. Lots of fish. Our friends had the sea bass for two and really enjoyed it. Great big portion. Two of the teenage girls had the prawn curry and I managed a taste which was excellent. Girls were raving about it. This place is off the beaten track but is well worth finding for value, service and most importantly great food!

“Great Fish Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2014

Excellent restuarant although tricky to find. Fresh fish with steaks as an alternative.
For a spot of lunch this cannot be beaten.

“Still as good as ever, possibly even better.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2014

It was great to be back in Albufeira again in May. The weather was fantastic, hotter than usual for May, right up there in the 30s. so the ideal was to have lunch in OLusitano.
Pedro has a lovely new area with a canopy so one can eat in full sun or shade and with Prato do Dia (plate of the day ) at under €7.00 it's a great way to taste or try out some local traditional Portuguese dishes. My wife and I opted for rabbit on the first day, I was reluctant to try but was not disappointed. It was fantastic. Highly recommended for lunch and we tried several different dishes at lunchtime during our two week stay, duck rice (shredded duck mixed with rice) was one of my favourites.
We also had dinner there on several nights, I'm addicted to Linguado (Sole grilled(barbecued) on the bone with olive oil and herbs) with veg and home made chips, I could go on and on. I'll be back there in September to see Pedro's new outside area with his new home/handmade Patio furniture, he was in the process of making it while we were there and it looks very interesting. Can't wait for September.
