We went here in the last night of our holiday for a special meal and it was fantastic. The tapas menu was really good and the food was amazing. The waitress was so friendly and helpful...she couldn't do enough for us. The sea bass was gorgeous and the country sausage (chorizo) was so tasty. I would definitely recommend this restaurant

This restaurant was recommended by our Hotel. There are so many Steak and Chip places to go to and we wanted something better, something Portugese. First of all it's absolutely beautiful inside, really smart. The owners and their son waiting on are really friendly. It's a lovely menu void of everything with chips and fried things. We ordered a beautifully... More

This is a beautiful well decorated traditional restaurant. We had a beautiful meal on holiday, started off with scallops, for mains had leg of lamb with a gorgeous jus and roasted potatoes (which rivalled my Mothers) and shared a salted chocolate desert for desert. With Partners food, bottle of vino Verde, coffees and water our bill came to €72 and... More

Food was lovely, our favourite meal of our entire stay. Price is really good and the portions are big. We had no wait at all and the waiter, who I believe is the owners young son, was amazing! Super keen and smilie had my bday meal there and couldn't be happier. Portuguese food at its best . 100% recommended

There are hundreds of restaurants, bars and cafes in Albufeira and it's a bewildering choice of what and where to eat. If you're looking at top quality home cooked food you can't go wrong here. We had chateaubriand after two excellent starters. There's a good wine list and not as expensive as you would think. Toilets upstairs are immaculate as... More

7 of us visited Casa da Avo. Two left happy. Everything started well with very good appetizers of codfish salad, tomatoes & cheese, and mussels. Then it went downhill. 3 had ordered the sea bass (1 grilled and 2 with orange and fennel sauce) What arrived was 2grilled and 1 with orange and fennel sauce. When the mistake was pointed... More

We were a group of 7 and arrived at 7:30. Appetizers were ordered . The tomatos and cheese with balsamic were wonderful but the cod salad was very salty and average. Three of the guests ordered leg of lamb, 2 ordered sea bass with orange sauce and fennel, 1 person ordered grilled sea bass and 1 person ordered steak- very... More

The food was excellent and the portions were very generous. Service was excellent. Would recommend this over any of the seaside restaurants as it is not a "touristy" place...just great food.
