Returned here again, same quality food, welcome, service & costs. Still a well used place by the friendly locals, daily specials that would meet every need, still only €5 ( plus covers ) a la carte menu also well priced & well worth a dable. If it's not on the memu, no problem, if at all possible they will make whatever for you given advance notice, we ordered the chateau brane on advanced notice, perfect & a good price compared with others who have this on menu.

Give it a try, you won't be sorry, unless you were looking for beefburger or fish & chips.

This is a restaurant we visited due to the good reviews on Trip Advsor, it is a little pavement fronted restaurant selling traditional portugese food. I had the tuna as recommended by the owner who bless him was helpful enough to spend about 10 mins discussion my choice with me when I wasnt sure! The tuna was massive and incredibly tasty, my other half had the cod also delicious. The service and price were both also very good, if your looking for traditional portugese food at a resonable price look no further.

Having been to Albufeira plenty of times this was our first visit to O Alentejano. We were lucky to have a table inside the very small restaurant on quite a windy night. They have outdoor seating as well.
We ordered the ameijxoas (small clams) for starters. They were cooked in garlic, oliveoil and white wine - topped with coriander. We ate them with garlic bread and it was a lovely experience - very tasty and fresh. For mains we both had the tuna steak cooked with tomatoes, green pepper and onion and served with boiled potatoes and a variety of beautifully prepared vedge - even the broccoli was cooked to perfection. We had a jar of house white wine to go with the food.
Both food and wine was good and there was plenty of it for quite a small price. A really nice, new experience. We will definately come back.

We are just back from The Algarve and 6 of us (4 adults and 2 kids) went to this restaurant last week. We have been before and yet again it did not disappoint. We all had mains, shared desserts and had a bottle of house white and half a botte of house red + soft drinks. The total meal came to 83 Euro's, Great value & great service. Although no kids menu (which makes a lovely change) the owner will arrange anything you want for the kids. Ours had spag bog and the other one had a plain chicken fillet which was gorgeous. He can also do proper fish fingers. It's one street behind the square in Albufeira and so much nicer, much much more authentic and far better value for money than any other restaurant on the square. Will visit every time we return.

I can honestly say I did not care too much for this place. The food was bland and the service was unexceptional shall not visit again
