Had a drink or two here on a couple of nights - quiz nights and karaoke feature as do most sports channels. Comfortable seating and good company just a few yards... More

This is our local bar when in Albufeira and Cathy is a perfect hostess. The drinks are reasonably priced and there is always a friendly welcome. They are open for breakfast which is good value. The breakfast is not the cheapest but the quality and amount make it just perfect. If you want extra or want to customise your breakfast... More
