Excellent service, lovely staff and top drawer food. Mr freddies may not be the trendiest venue but certainly gives the so called elite eateries a run for their money ! Without question top quality food, first class service at value for money prices. Don't miss it!

In an area like Almancil, the temptation to try somewhere new on every visit is hard to resist, especially when the range of quality establishments is so extensive and so varied.
Recent trips to Couleur France and Parrilla Natural fully justified the approach, but on our last night we elected to return to an old favourite - Mr Freddie's.
The staff, the service and the food fully justified the decision for this is a place where the package delivers more than the sum of the parts.
We were with friends who dine regularly at the restaurant, but felt the hospitality we remembered from a couple of previous visits to be just as warm even before our companions arrived.
Our wine choice was left in the hands of the owner, formerly the sommelier I believe, who repaid our trust with a good bottle which did not project us into the financial stratosphere.
As previously, friendly, efficient service supported the very able kitchen staff and while prawns and steak rightly attract lavish praise, as they did from our party on the night, my rack of lamb was the most succulent and tasty I have ever enjoyed.
None of this will come as a surprise to TA readers, but two elements of the package are worth noting. Those who do not possess a trencherman appetite may need to exert maximum restraint with the generous cover portions if a three-course meal is to be fully enjoyed.
No warning needed for the second item. Perhaps it should not come as a surprise given the general ambience and warmth of the place that the whole experience is rounded off not with the option of a glass of port or brandy, but with a full bottle of port brought to the table! Not exactly what you come across too often in my neck of the woods.
So, when we return, we will doubtless still experiment with a long list of fresh recommendations, but a visit to Mr Freddies is like a visit to an old friend and it will be nice to see him again.

We are four golfers who appreciate good food. This was the second of three restaurants visited whilst golfing in Vilamoura and in our opinion the best. The other reviewers are not exaggerating about the quality of the steak. All other aspects of the restaurant were excellent - a very good dining experience at a reasonable price.
