“Just ok”
Reviewed 10 October 2013

We had the Piri Piri chicken who was very cheap pieces with lots of bones in and the mixed kebabs from the specials board with sausage and meet.
The portions where average size and compared to other venues we ate this was the worst value for money and we didn't really enjoy it.

“Fresh food and great prices”
Reviewed 25 July 2013 via mobile

We visited this restaurant as it was just opening and whilst we has a refreshing cold beer the owner showed us his fresh fish caught that day. We ordered grilled bream and it was exquisite. The restaurant is highly recommended, very family friendly and the prices are low compared to the quality.

“Meal Out”
Reviewed 22 May 2013

Had a three course evening meal here and was pleasantly surprised how nice it was, as we had passed by often and customers were few and far between. The surroundings were nice and the staff very pleasant, would certainly eat here again and the prices were very reasonable.

“True Portuguese Fare, Excellent Value”
Reviewed 16 March 2013

We called here on a walk from Albufeira to Oura and we were treated like kings, excellent service, gorgeous food, we ordered the mixed grill and while we waited we were served drinks, bread butter with olives and we were delighted when the meal arrived as it was a true Portuguese dish of mixed meats, sausages, peppers and onions on a long kebab stick with salad and french fries. Drinks were very reasonably priced and the service was excellent. It looks like it's run by a husband and wife team with him doing a great job front of house and her doing a fabulous job in the kitchen. 4 of us ate for around 50 euro, with drinks great value.

“Good honest Portuguese cooking”
Reviewed 15 February 2012

O Lavrador (The Farmer) is a little out of the way, though still reasonably central, in Albufeira.

Closed in winter.

The welcome is friendly, the service unobtrusive and efficient. The food is cooked very well (Sword-fish steaks are wonderful!) and the menu suitably varied.

Price-wise not the cheapest... but still worth a visit of you see it.
