“Pleasant without being special”
Reviewed 30 April 2014

Popped in for afternoon lunch based on Tripadvisor reviews as we were staying at the nearby Pine Cliffs. It is a nice spot to have some lunch, at in the outdoor terrace, and the playground was appreciated by our 1 yr old son! Service was friendly enough without being over attentive. Their version of Gambas Pil Pil at €17 was not as good as I experience in Spain, and far more dearer. Mains of oven based cod was OK, but fish contained a lot of bones, whilst my partner had lamb cutlets which looked OK. Pancake we had for dessert was a little dry, although the port was lovely, and was followed by a complimentary glass.

Glad we went, but very unlikely to return.

“Incredibly good”
Reviewed 24 March 2014

We had a cheap deal to have a week in Albufeira last March. the weather was poor and overall we didn't have a great holiday, but this place was sensational

Some nights we struggled to get a seat. In the week we were there, we ate here 4 times and every time we were amazed.

Seafood is great, but I had meat as well. Wine list excellent. Staff really know their stuff. one night there was a live band playing. Overall, if I was in the Algarve again, this would be a must see

“Fresh fish”
Reviewed 9 February 2014

We Had the cataplana for 2 it was delicious and could have easily fed 3, our waitress spoke very good English and explained the menu with very good descriptions, the service was reasonably quick despite the restaurant being very busy. It's not the cheapest menu in the area but overall I thought it was good value

“Birthday Lunch at Olhos”
Reviewed 8 February 2014

The fish is frsh and prepared the way you prefer. It was very well prepared but the side dishes were a bit disappointing. The salad did not seem to be that fresh! The dessert card does not have much prepared by the restaurant. There are two parts to the restaurant--one for cheaoper dining-- a bit too noisy.
