My boyfriend and I recently visited this resturaunt and we both agree that it was excellent. We were looking to try some traditional Portuguese food and only visited this resturaunt as we were handed a leaflet. The owner and his staff were all really welcoming and the service and food were fab. The restaurant has a really homely feeling to it and it feels like you are being welcomed into a traditional Portuguese home for dinner. I would definetly recommend this place to all who visit Albuferia and would not hesitate to return if I was back in the area again. We had homemade pate followed by fish cataplana and then homemade cheesecake, all of which were truely delicious.

Francesco and his team provide a great atmosphere with meals made from good quality food cooked simply which retains the flavour. They all obviously enjoy what they do and have the diners laughing their way through the evening. Don't go if you want fast food as it is all cooked to order but we weren't aware of the wait as Francesco was so entertaining

The Blue Sky restaurant is fab place to visit and highly recommend it. We decided to visit due to the reviews and needless to say we were not disappointed - Just one word of warning, Blue Sky is not anywhere near the flag on the map, you need to go along the Rue Almeida Garrett about half way which ever end you go from, either from the roundabout or from the Strip. We went there 29th & 30th Oct and we only stayed in Portugal for 3 nights. Yes you have to wait for your food but it is not an excessive wait, the food is freshly prepared and you can actually have a decent conversation with the owner and staff, plus you cannot hear any dings from a microwave. The food was well prepared, tasty, well worth the wait and cheap to boot! What more could you want? If we went back to the same area we would make for Blue Sky again without a doubt for our evening meals.

We were convinced to try this restaurant from reccomendations and we were not dissappointed! The restaurant has a lovely family atmosphere and the owner tries to spend as much time with every table making sure everyone is happy.
We had decided on a seafood evening and following our patrons advice we shared garlic prawns followed by the "seafood rice" with a bottle of house white or two. One word.......WOW!
Only complaint would be that we were so full when we left we didn't think we would make it back to the hotel. Awesome.
