“Johnny Hooper's Revisited.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 April 2014

We decided to revisit Johnny's Saxaphone Bistro this year as we remembered what a great time we had there last year.Once again, it was a triumph. Great music , great food (even better than last year) Our group chose many different things from the menu and all of us were delighted with our choice. The staff are friendly and efficeint . Other diners, from many different countries ,contributed to the ambience and pleasure of the experience.And what talent Johnny has - he gives so much pleasure with his perfect rendition of classics as well as introducing new music. We shall definitely go back for more whenever we are in the Algarve.

“Fantastic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2014 via mobile

Went last night and the moment we went in to the time we left quality. Food wife had beef stroganoff I had the pork belly on mash. Best food we've had since we arrived. Johhny then entertainment us with his sax playing which was worth paying for itself. Met some lovely people
A must for everyone a great night and good prices

“You have to come here!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 April 2014

Thank god Johnny Hoopers has reopened for the season!
I have been coming to Johnny's since it opened 8 years ago and have always had a fantastic night. The food is superb with a great choice of dishes, including vegetarian and gluten free.
The steak is one of the best I have ever had, and my husband always struggles to finish the belly of pork, both cooked beautifully and really generous portions.
The staff are excellent, really attentive, always scanning the room to check if anyone wants more drinks or food.
The entertainment is also brilliant. Johnny plays sax during dinner, before a very competitive music quiz! The evening finishes with a disco until late.
Sundays at Johnny's are also great, best Sunday dinner around, and other options for those who don't want a roast. Chilled out atmosphere on the sunny terrace, with live music all afternoon.
Even without the entertainment, it is worth coming for the food alone. Sue is a brilliant chef, with a menu way better than the average Strip restaurant. Food is all freshly prepared and generous portions - make sure you leave enough room for one of the delicious desserts!
Party nights Tuesday and Friday - make sure you visit this restaurant for a fantastic nights entertainment.

“Great food, great entertainment - best night out”
5 of 5 bubbles 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.
