Nicely decorated restaurant with good seafood menu. Unfortunately no views which is something we missed whilst dining

We had a perfect date night in the very romantic atmosphere of the bar room. The staff was very friendly and made sure that guests feel alright. I can highly recommend the tiger prawns fresh from portuguese ocean.

We went there as part of a large group - ten of us - at short notice on a weekend night. Very pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food. It was very busy but the staff managed this really well. Good range of food to cater for all tastes - fish, lamb cutlets (v good), steaks and kebabs.

We visited here after numerous recommendations. The restaurant was easily located with the help of google maps - 2 mins from Old Town Square. We were warmly greated and suprised that it appeared full - we were escorted through to our seat. There is a lovely atmosphere and the decor is good. Our meal was amazing. The prawns we had... More

Whilst in Albufeira. A visit to this restaurant is a must in my opinion. Ps. My wife agrees. Its location is just opposite the Sol e Mar Hotel down the steps. Food wise. We have never been dissappointed. Decor wise it is lovely. We visited twice in our 7 day visit. Best regards to all who looked after us. Your... More

We were delighted to find this place having argued about the right way to go! It is true I don't know my right from my left but my sense of direction is infallible. We arrived early but the ambience was good, This improved as the night wore on. Unfortunately the food didn't keep pace! Hubby steak was not rare. My... More

We chose this restaurant because it served Portuguese Cataplana for one person(most restaurants only serve it for two) and served chicken piri piri to suit my husband (often only served in cafe style restaurants). Well what a delightful surprise !! The traditional heavy wooden door opened into an old building with wooden beams, a wood burning fire, whitewashed walls adorned... More

Central location and warm atmosphere. Very busy even though this is the end of the season. Friendly and efficient service. Excellent grilled meats : we had beef, cerdo iberico and chicken. Reasonable prices. Recommended.
