The food was delicious! We ordered the mixed local fish during the lunch for 5€ and was more than satisfied! The waitor Rodrigue is a gentleman who knows how to treat guests! Five stars!

“Authentic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2014 via mobile

Was lucky enough to stumble across this little gem whilst exploring the old town. I highly recommend this place, its lovely and small and away from the generic food found on the main square. You also don't get bothered whilst sat eating your meal. The service was excellent and staff very informative. I had the pork and clams "alentejano" style and it was delicious. Also got to try Portuguese firewater, not sure I will try that again it was like petrol lol.
If you want an authentic meal please go to this authentic little place

“Delicious Portuguese Grill”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 June 2014

No annoying touts harassing you to go in and Portuguese speaking people eating there. That's 2 brownie points immediately from me! Atmosphere was good and so was the food and service. Kebabs were nicely presented but I opted for catch of the day, which was grilled sea bass.

“Excellent portuegese food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 June 2014 via mobile

We actually came back to dine here twice as it's the only restaurant in old town albufeira that serves authentic portuegese dish. Even compared to restaurant in Lisbon, we still find the food here was best. Must try if you are looking for non tourist menu.

“excellent and authentic portuguese cuisine”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 June 2014

We ate there twice as a couple (once for dinner and once for lunch), in late May 2014, plus once on my own.

Having ordered both from the fish menu (rice with seafood and crab, tuna steak) and the meat menu (Algarve-style pork, Portuguese stew), we were very satisfied on all occasions, both with the food and with the service by the kind folks there. I definitely suggest this place to anyone looking authentic portuguese cuisine, which by the way is hard to come by in Albufeira.
