Riviera Pastelaria is a must if you visit Albufeira. The staff are always helpful and cheery. The cakes are out of this world. The biggest problem you will have is selecting which cake to have. The coffee is also first class. The biggest surprise for me was the cost you will be in for a pleasant surprise.

We were told about this by our thomson rep Di, and seen as we were on a ramble thought we would try it, all i can say is wow, we walked into the biggest selection of cakes ive ever seen, hubby choose a slice of cake covered in chocolate i went for an almond custard pastry which i could not finish as it was so big. we ate in so got a coffee each as well, and it was all lovely the cake hubby had was delicious and very moist (well i had to check it was ok for him) even the coffees tasted strong, i was expecting the bill to be well over 10euros but it only cost 6euros absolute bargain!

This was part of the hotel we stayed in. If you ever visit Albufeira you must try this place at least once but I would say one visit is not enough. The cakes are huge and very hard to choose from. The savouries are also delicious. Highly recomended

Our travel rep mentioned the Riviera to us at our welcome meeting and we just had to try it out. We first arrived by the touristic train but then realised we could walk it just as quick via the Lidl shop along the dual carriageway, hence us visiting 3 times during our holiday.
The waiting staff are very efficient and friendly and the choice of food is vast and the quality is exceptional. If you visit Albufeira just visit this place by the Brisa sol hotel. I guarantee you will not be dissappointed.
I have always thought if the locals use an eating place as much as they do here then it has to be good.
