Normally we would wait to write a review for a resturant until we got back home however as this dining experience was so incredible we are writing this from our balcony having just left the resturant under 1 hour ago having just experienced one of the true gems in albuferia, from the moment we arrived peter and anna who own this resturant are a lovely couple and made us feel most welcome, peter told us some of his own funny stories and how the local produce is sourced, cooked and presented, by the time he had explained the 4th course both our mouths were salervating in anticipation of the beutiful 5 courses and great wine that awaited us, all 5 courses were amazing which included scollops, beutiful homemade soups, perfectly cooked sea bream, pork and beef and amazing homemade chocolate and carrot cake, peter also asked us if we wanted extra pork and desserts but we were too stuffed, not to mention the complimentary port that rounded the meal off, there is enough time inbetween meals so your not rushed and peter and anna also ask you if you would like more or less time inbetween your meals, the resturant is beutifully decorated, spotlessly clean and very cosey, ideal for any occassion and if it is a special occassion expect a little special surprise, we have eaten in many resturants around the world but this is one of the best dining experiences we have ever had, its not just a meal its a memory :) just a little note to say how nice the warm homemade bread was, especially the walnut and banana bread, we have never tasted bread like it ever! Make sure you book in advance in peak season to avoid disappointment as all food is cooked to order and is so popular, thanks peter and anna for a truely memorable night and tremendous food, next time we are back here we will be coming again! Thank you, jamie and lindsey (sunderland) xx

The four of us visited for my birthday on Thursday 10th April. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel special and this continued throughout an amazing eating experience from all five sumptuous courses and all for €49.00pp. Each course was beautiful explained and then presented complimented with some superb but not expensive wine from the extensive wine list. Nothing rushed a sedate relaxed atmosphere with a as if we'd eaten there on many occasions feel. And I'm hoping to return on many occasions. All finished off with a home made birthday cake complete with candles. You can see how this professionally run restaurant has made it to the TripAdvisor no1 spot in Albufeira and it's got plenty of competition. See you again soon x

They serve a set menu of five courses for 50 euros per person, the setting and ambience is lovely, the food is great quality, freshly cooked and the service is exceptional. The couple that run this place are both lovely, knowledgeable and attentive. This is a really lovely place for a special meal. Would definitely recommend. The lady even gave me some banana bread to take away as I commented how delicious it was! The wine we had was house white at 26 euros and was very nice. We enjoyed sampling the different courses, each is a decent portion and delicious. Booking required.
