Came to Albufeira for 8 nights and have already been here 4 times! The ribs are OUTSTANDING, fajitas are lovely and plentiful too. The staff really made it for us. Faust is the man! Love from Ireland Katie&Dave :-)

We wanted a Mexican and this being one of the better rated ones in the Old Town we gave it a try and we were not disappointed! We shared nachos to start and they were delicious, a good size portion and one was enough for the 2 of us. Staff were great with our toddler to! Always making sure she... More

Visited restaurant for a drink 1st afternoon we arrived while our room was getting ready. Very nice so we decided to try the food some night, We both had fajitas which were nice but nothing special. We were given 3 small tortillas each which was definitely not enough for the amount of food we had. At no point were we... More

We ate here as a group. Service was good and quite fun to wear sombreros and try on a traditional dress! Food was served rather promptly - the chilli starter is huge!! Good choice of food on the menu and also a good range of drinks. Great location too

Amazing food, served with amazing service. Their is not ONE thing I could fault. Not ONE. When we arrived my partner spilled her drink TWICE 😂and it was cleaned up straight away by the staff. We wanted to try the nachos but we didn't want a large bowl just a small one as we didn't want to spoil our meal.... More

This was our second visit here and just as good as it was a couple of years ago... really friendly welcome, no hard sell outside to get you in (that says something in my book). Great atmosphere, really friendly staff. The food was amazing, I had the sizzling fillet steak stone, and OMG I am a steak lover and have... More

Hard to fault the experience as a whole. We stopped by for a snack a couple of days ago and decided to come back for 'proper food'. We had Enchiladas, Burritos and Fajitas and everything was delicious. Conar decided it was the best fajitas he's ever had, and he knows his stuff! Service was excellent, staff were attentive and friendly... More

Never miss a visit here when in Albufeira - the chilli comes bubbling and is just spicy enough without being over the top. Fajitas come with all the usual bits and pieces, plus the waiters will bring you more tortillas if you need them. House wine is very nice and well priced. Rounded off with a complimentary port, a very... More
