We were recommended this place by a taxi driver which is always a good start. There is a menu but most people choose the Rodizio which is a continuous offering of fish from the open grill. A plate of tomato salad and a bowl of garlic new potatoes arrives followed by the restaurant staff bringing round trays of fish as they are cooked from the grill. Expect Sea Bream, Sardine, Mackerel, Salmon and Sea Bass to appear during the course of your meal, the salad and potatoes are topped up as often as you wish and you eat until you can eat no more, all for around 15 euros. The fish is served on the bone however is easy to eat, they put a large plate in the middle of the table for the bits. Great value and the freshest fish around. Local wine is served by the jug. Easy to find it is in St Eulalia main street which runs parallel to the strip, all the taxi drivers know it (around 5 euros from Albufeira old town)

I've been here more than once but only ever had the mixed fish ("rodizio"). It's a great opportunity to try several kinds of fish. It's very simple and not prone to fancy stuff but the fish is very fresh.

Ordered the mixed fish, we felt very rushed as before we had finished the first fish the next was being put for us to eat and this is how it carried on. The service was awful compared to last time, we were not offered any refills of potatoes or tomato salad. The fish we were given all tasted similar and it put us off fish for the rest of our holiday. We did go early and think we should of gone later as they were just cooking for us. We will try it again as enjoyed our previous visit but will give it a miss when we visit in July.

This was one of the best finds in Albufeira. Following one other recommendation we ended up here in this restaurant because we like fresh fish so much. We ordered the Rodizio. Delicious salad and potatoes and the fish kept coming and coming. We had to beg the waiter to stop bringing fish. You must like whole grilled fish and do not care about taking out the bones.
It was so delicious that we went back there for a second time that same week. Their sangria was also very nice so was their personnel, friendly and kind.
We had all nice dinners in Albufeira but this one was the best we had. I will come back here definitely if I get to albufeira again.

We opted for the mixed fish with potatoes and salad. It just kept coming! We had two bowls of potatoes and salad, and the chef came round with a fish for everyone, then another one, and another...... in all we had SIX different fish and had to tell him we couldn't eat any more. and all for 15.90 euros each plus very reasonably priced drinks of course. If you are in the area and like fish you must seek out this restaurant. There were many Portuguese locals there as well - always a good sign.
