“Lovely place”
Reviewed September 21, 2013 via mobile

Popped in for lunch, really friendly welcoming owners, food was lovely and all freshly cooked, we chatted to a lady who introduced herself as Paula (the owner I think) she spent time with us explaining about the area and places to stay if we came again, she has an apartment her self but was not pushy at all, a place really worth a visit, it's on the road between the strip and the old town and is slightly set back of the road so its peaceful too !

“Family friendly, good food, nice staff”
Reviewed September 13, 2013

Food aside for a sec this place is Great for kids. There is a swing, slide, Wendy house, car ride and mini train ride. There is a pool table for older kids too. We have 2 small kids so they shared a portion of chicken nuggets and chips each of the 3 nights we went here. When the staff brought them out they looked like individual portions each with their own salad. We varied each night getting traditional dishes, the curries and steak (again!).

Big thanks to the staff here who made our evenings very relaxing. Very friendly, great quality and very good value.

“Best dining experience... a hidden gem!”
Reviewed September 13, 2013

We had no expectations in visiting this restaurant. We hadn't researched the menu or checked Trip Advisor for past reviews. We were pleasantly surprised.

To start, we ordered homemade cheese (which was served with a homemade jam and honey, and decorated with edible flowers). For our main course, we ordered tuna and swordfish. Both were cooked to perfection and served with beautifully al dente vegetables. For dessert, I ordered a trio of Portuguese sweets; my partner ordered the traditional almond cake.

.........ineffable culinary pleasure!

“Great family restaurant”
Reviewed August 30, 2013

The perfect place with small kids, as there is a play area and so many places are just not suitable for small kids in albufeira. Good meal and children's food was good, friendly and helpful service. It was the most relaxing meal myself and my husband had during our hols as the kids were happy and entertained!
