“Excellent Menu, Food, Staff & Setting”
Reviewed March 19, 2012

Our family, 2 over 60's and our daughter, husband and 2 young grandchildren, have stayed at the Dunas Douradas Beach Club on a number of occasions, excellent accommodation and facilities, and often eat in their on-site restaurant, the Albatroz.

The menu caters for most tastes and is one of the widest ranging you will find in any restaurant in the area including Pizza, Pasta, Fish & Seafood, Meat dishes and Vegetarian, all of high quality, beautifully prepared and served, and delicious.

The Beach Club is only a few years old and the restaurant has high quality finishes, tablecloths and tableware, including brand new cutlery (instead of the well worn and dubious old cutlery that you often get in many restaurants) etc, with comfortable chairs, and tables either inside or outside.

The staff are very child friendly and they have tanks with "Lobby" lobsters in them, although we haven't told the grandchildren what is going to happen to them.

The prices for food and wine are comparable with other restaurants in the area, but the overall package is in our view superior, and we often eat in the Albatroz but would consider it worth visiting even if we weren't staying at the Beach Club.

When you've finished your meal you can stroll down to the beautiful beach which is only about 100 yards away.

In the summer they also do a fantastic BBQ, I think on Sundays but you would need to check.

Highly recommended and we will hopefully be returning soon.

“Relaxing resort restaurant”
Reviewed October 30, 2010

A stone's throw from the sea at the Dunas Douradas resort, this is a pleasant spot to eat.
In October we had tasty prawns in a copious garlic sauce to start. My chicken piri-piri was tasty but fairly standard. My wife had grilled sea bass with a nice sauce, again well cooked but vegetable accompaniments not very refined. My daughter's Lasagne was good.
We ate inside- modern but relaxing ambience. My wife has eaten on the terrace in the summer and enjoyed the atmosphere and food. They also do good cocktails. Good location, but cooking not really outstanding for the area.
