Looked OK from the outside but that was it. Service varied from OK to non existant, food was poor. Won't be back.

This restaurant was absolutely hideous.

The service was slow and the staff where so rude. We had our 8 month old who we ordered food for and it took an hour and a half to come - by then it was so late for him and he was crying as he was hungry, so when we asked politely if it was coming soon the waiter turned and very rudely said we are busy and pointed to the restaurant and walked away. When we had finally received the food it was cold the chicken was dry and the pizza was like plastic.
We weren't the only table this happened to three couples/families where having the same trouble as if we had been forgotten as we sat buy the wall.

I was so shocked by there unbelievable service as we had no trouble anywhere else.
The place is dirty- the staff where rude and slow and the food was god awful!

I really do not recommend at all for anyone!!

Visited the restaurant after travelling from albufeira to vilamoura for a different evening out. The only good part of the trip was the food. The service was awful, constantly feeling like your in the way, being pushed out of the way and just generally rude staff. They charged us 8 euros for 4 bread roles common misleading of the tourists... Then 4.50 for a large coke. We were so fed up after our meal we didn't bother waiting for a look at the deserts, paid an out. Overall visit somewhere who wants your service.

Nice views over the marina. My steak was really nice but the pizza my husband ordered tasted like a bought one you buy in any supermarket.

We waited just over 10 mins JUST for our drinks & the waiting staff were so miserable, didn't eat here again.
