This is a great place for lunch or an informal evening meal. There is a restaurant upstairs but we didn't eat there - I am reviewing the downstairs bar and eating area only. The food is really lovely, the staff are friendly and it's reasonably priced. We visited 4 times during our week's stay so that says a lot. The... More

Had a great 3 course Christmas Dinner, Service was excellent and so relaxing with no rush even though we were on a time slot, Great value for money and we returned for another evening meal before we left for home after a fantastic 5 day Christmas break, George.

Not a posh night out but very good as a cheap and cheerful dinner. Great specials with good quality. Try the caipirinha - excellent! Can't fault Invictus for what it is. Also noticed it's very popular during the day so that's also worth a try.

Invictus has a day-long "happy hour" and serves the best pint in Albufiera. The food is excellent and very reasonably priced. Try the mixed grill - lovely jubbly.

Invictus is arguably the best "restaurant" in the area, as distinct to the many cafes and snack bar, particularly if you eat in the upstairs area. On this trip, as we were late in the season, the upstairs was closed, so we eat in the downstairs bar. The food, though, was of the same high standard and we thoroughly enjoyed... More
