“Fun place!”
Reviewed March 28, 2013

There are lots of restaurants in Albufeira and lots of hawkers that try to get you to choose their restaurant. Ronnie (from Brazil!) is the guy outside of Buddy's, and he sets the tone for the place. Fun, chatty, sweet, always time for a chat. Great guy.

Buddy's is right on the plaza in the centre of town, so it's a fun place to sit and people watch. We went here for breakfast several times, and there were plenty of menu options to keep everyone happy. Not gourmet, but definitely tasty - and friendly!

“Best Steak ever”
Reviewed March 24, 2013

Oh wow, did we have a steak! We ate here 2 nights in a row. The first I had a Gammon steak whilst my Husband had Steak which was the size of the plate. Delicious so we went back the following evening and this time we both had the steak. Best meal of the holiday

“Little gem in old town Albufeira”
Reviewed March 4, 2013

Myself & Pamela found Buddy's on our first night in the old town, spoke to the fantastic Ronnie outside who showed us to our table, we found the food to be very good & very well priced. The staff couldn't do enough for you, service was very quick & friendly. We enjoyed our first visit so much that we returned a further 3 or 4 times during our stay in the old town. When we went there on the last day of our holiday it was like saying goodbye to friends when we left.

Would highly recommend it

“good food but watch your change”
Reviewed February 10, 2013

We found Buddys steakhouse in the square albufeira four of us went there 3 times food was good service good but on the third night we had a few drinks with our meal ,and lo and behold we were overcharged 18 euro, the bill been 81 euro when we questioned it with the waiter he spotted the mistake on the bill in a split second despite 12 items on the bill seems like he knew where to look on the bill ,anyhow they took our bill back to rectify the new charge and it was still over so they gave us 12 euro back when we asked for the old bill back guess what, it couldn't be found .one more thing the 3 nights we were there we ordered pepper sauce first 2 nights no charge and of course the third night we were charged 7 euro for about 2 tablespoons of peppersauce so all im saying enjoy your nice meal but check your bill if your after having a few beers. im giving it a poor rating because of the overcharge
