“marscaponne moose!!”
Reviewed March 4, 2013

Have eaten here over twelve times now since it opened.
Frequent 14day visits to Algarve must include Paulu's. Great prices against the superb quality of the food and service. (Manuel) Thiago, Luigi & Luciano make a great team with efficient,attentive,relaxed service and Jorge is always friendly and welcoming. Have reccommended and dined here with numerous people and had no bad responses. On a short visit last November, my daughter Gemma, who always has something left over or rejected, had an empty plate, after 30yrs of fussyness, this is quite an acheivement for any restaurant. We will be back in September despite staying 12k down the coast. Steak, Portugese Style! best in my life, in the world. Muito Obrigado! Tony & Jayne. Leeds.

“Great Food - Everytime”
Reviewed February 24, 2013

We've eaten here 4 times now and have really enjoyed each meal. The food is home cooked, hot, attractively served and most certainly good value.
My husband just loves the steak deal as advertised on the board outside and always pronounces it the best steak ever. Yesterday he priced up a similar sized fillet in Sainsbury's and marvelled at the value of the deal. The salad is crsip and fresh and the bread basket a really good beginning to your meal whilst you study the menu.
The staff are great and really go out of their way to make you feel welcome. The free drink at the end is a great touch as was the party box which they gave my daughter - thanks guys this was most appreciated!
You must try this restaurant if you are in the resort just at the bottom of the strip. We will certainly be back if we are in Portugal again. Keep up the good work!!

“Great Food, Friendly Service”
Reviewed February 18, 2013

Tourist menu ranges from 12.50 for local fish to 19.50 for fillet steak meal including proper dessert and wine. We had T Bone and Fillet Steak and both were excellent. Friendly and helpful staff. We live locally but hadnt tried it before until a friend recommended it and I checked out the reviews here. I dont think the name "Pasta Cafe" tells the right story. We already use another good Italian, but I can see this becoming a regular for a steak supper!

“Perfect for couples”
Reviewed February 3, 2013

I live in Albufeira and have been here 3 times now. This is a lovely restaurant that is great for couples and families, providing purely Italian cuisine. Food is lovely, atmosphere is nice and the staff are friendly. The Bruschetta as a starter is gorgeous and I would reccommend one of the steaks for a main course. Range of drinks to choose from, too. Although this restaurant mainly attracts couples, it caters for families with children, too - there is a children's section on the menu with lots of choices. If you want a good-quality Italian meal with a lovely atmosphere, this is the place to come.
