“Fabulous Evening”
Reviewed July 31, 2014

We saw people queuing for this Restaurant one evening and decided that must be a good sign. We returned at 9pm the next day and only waited about 10 mins for a table for two. We had taccos and the burger with salsa, which were a good size and tasty. We saw some beautiful Sombreo hats and asked if we could have a photo wearing them, don't think this is something that they advertise, but if you ask they are very happy to let you try one on. Drinks are average price for a restaurant. Great atmosphere, friendly and helpful staff and near seafront. Would definitely return again.

“Outstanding”
Reviewed July 20, 2014

Another restaurant that we spend a lot of time in when we visit Albufeira, I could eat in there every day over a fourteen night stay and not get fed up as the variety and quality is hard to beat anywhere. Highly recommend the Steaks, Fajita and Chicken dishes especially as well as Stuffed Bell Pepper Starters.
The Staff are amazing, always smiling despite being so busy turning tables around due to the number of customers every evening. The Kitchen is on full display so you can see that hygiene is never an issue either

“Not a place to eat as a vegetarian”
Reviewed July 9, 2014

Had reviews on here before eating and I always try to be positive about places and ignore bad reviews. We ate here on our last night in Albuferia and it was our only bad meal. Firstly they brought us the wrong meals and then snatched them away when they realised. Veg burrito ordered but no veg in sight. bean sludge with cheese inside and out, only veg was cooked lettuce and 2 slices of jalapeno. Hardly touched food but nobody was interested to know why food not eat.

“Amazing”
Reviewed July 8, 2014

The food here is amazing !! we had chilli to start and potatoe skins, I wish i'd have had chilli for a main as it was delightful, best i've ever had. Fajitas and Lamb steaks were also very good. There is always a queue but the staff are great and are straight on clearing tables to get you in, highly recommend !!
