Restaurant details
Reviewed 26 October 2008

We had been staying in Club Albufeira for over a week when we had the good fortune of discovering this terrific restaurant. Actually, it came about by chance as we happened to look up to the second floor of a small shopping center housing a grocery store. In error and thinking we would find a pizzaria, we walked into the restaurant and were immediately greeted by the new owner Julio (recently moved from South Africa), his wife and daughter. With his great personality and welcoming manner, we quickly felt at ease. One thing led to another and soon we were expressing our disappointment with the local cuisine in that we thought they tended to overcook certain foods. As soon as he heard these comments, Julio encouraged us to come back the next night to experience chicken cooked on his own grill in the back. Said we wouldn't be disappointed. Desperately wanting a good meal, we rapidly took him up on his offer and proceeded to have our best meal yet! To top things off, the price for 3 was under 20EUR. Hard to believe but true! Before leaving that night, we were so happy with his meal that we made arrangements with Julio to buy and serve us prawns the next night. This time we were 4 people and the meal included a dozen beautifully cooked prawns, tasty rice and salad.. I don't think we paid more that 10-12EUR each. Needless to say, our 3rd and final night was spent over at Julio's. Why go elsewhere when you're guaranteed a good, reasonably priced meal? For those without cars, it's worth hiring a taxi. Bon Appetit! JM, Montreal
