“Great food, great entertainment - best night out”
Reviewed 21 April 2014

What a brilliant night out! The food is absolutely top class, the best steak I have had anywhere, generous portions and cooked to perfection, with a beautiful sauce. Dessert was just as good, white chocolate and baileys cheesecake, really moist, and struggled to finish the enormous slice I was served.
This would be great on its own, but throw in the entertainment from the superb Johnny and you have the best night out on the Algarve. Brilliant saxophone playing, a great music quiz, followed by more sax then a disco. Johnny is certainly the host with the most - makes everyone feel welcome, takes time to find out about his guests and includes them in the banter during the night.
Will definitely make this a regular visit when in the Algarve.

“Whats happened to Johnny Hoopers !”
Reviewed 19 April 2014

Been twice before and had a reasonable evening despite mediocre food, but after visiting last Tuesday 15th April have to say the food has now deteriorated massively, and at the prices they charge has become a complete rip off ! I thought I would play safe by having the "classic" burger with chips and salad, but they somehow managed to murder it ! Its without doubt the worst burger I have ever had . The eating experience ruined our evening so we left early before 10pm, and felt 180 euros for what we'd had was extortionate. Not recommended !!

“Don't miss this!!”
Reviewed 19 April 2014

If you are in Albufeira you shouldn't miss this evening out! GREAT ATMOSPHERE! Johnny is a fantastic host, plays the Saxophone like no-one else, has a great sense of humor. We had a superb soup and great salade, and the desserts are also very good! You meet people from other countries, later there's a Music-quiz, (you can win a bottle of Port) And great 60's - 70's music. We've been many times at Johnny's Bistro, it's always FANTASTIC. We also love the Sunday-lunches with a Roast while there's live-music at the beautiful terrace. And by the way very sympathetic waitresses. We really recommend this evening out!!
