we only had the nachos here but if they are anything to go by you wont be dissapointed..this is a dish to share it was delicious and the margaritas were good. staff were friendly and the prices looked good. It was on our last day that we tried this place but will give it a go for a full meal next time .

Although inside the restaurant is small the staff, service and food are brilliant. We shared Nachos for starter which there was enough to feed the 3 of us. The chilli and rice for main was just brilliant very tasty and a generous portion a must visit if in Albuferia

starters of tortilla chips and cheesy garlic bread arrived promptly however the chilli con carne and chicken fajitas took far too long and we were really fed up waiting. the same thing happened with the bill. the restaurant was only a quarter full at the time so would hate to be there if it were busier. I must say the food was lovely. absolutely everything was polished off. good sized portions too. the food was good but the service would put me off going back.

We ate here for dinner on Friday 28th March, and overall had a pleasant evening.

Food-wise, the starter of stuffed peppers was really tasty and enjoyed by us both. Not the best quality beef mince inside (rather fatty), but tasty not the less.

For our mains, we ordered the beef burrito and chicken enchilada.
Neither were remotely 'traditional' (if memory serves correctly, they claimed to be so on the menu).
The burrito had been baked in the oven and cheese melted on top (as an enchilada should be!). In addition, the rice etc was outside the burrito. More a beef wrap than a burrito! Not traditional in terms of any other 'Mexican' restaurant anywhere else in the world we've ever been to.

With the enchilada, there was no cheese on the outside, it had not been baked in the oven, and there was some dodgy creamy sauce on top - not quite sour cream, not quite a sauce. Not as described on the menu!

I'm open to trying new things, and generally enjoy when restaurants serve their own interpretation of a popular dish - however, the mains just didn't seem quite right. Neither myself nor my partner particularly enjoyed our main course.

The service was OK, the staff were rather interested in talking to one another and we had a lengthy wait for the plates to be cleared and the bill brought to us. When the staff did interact, however, they were polite and helpful, however - so no big issue.

Despite the main courses not being brilliant, they weren't bad and the starter was enjoyable. Gievn the good location and wide choice of dishes on the menu, we may visit when next in Albufeira and sample something else on the menu.

This place is next to the Indian we were on our way to one night and decided to make a mental note to visit at some point before we went home. it looks lovely on the outside the decor is modern and we sat outside because it was too hot inside. We had nachos and onion rings to start which were nice, along with sangria which was lovely. the main was disappointing, not a lot of flavour but it was cheap and edible, and i was starving so it didn't much matter. My boyfriend isn't fussy but he wasnt best pleased, his looked awful and he didnt enjoy it at all. View was a major plus, looked over the beach and we went around sundown which was beautiful!!! Wouldn't go back again though- staff not very attentative and one waiter was quite rude also.
