Description: This portuguese snack bar/restaurant is behind the Pingo Doce supermarket at the watches roundabout. It is great value for money and the food is lovely. If I want chicken piri piri this is where I go. The pork ribs are lovely as well. The house wine is very good and the staff are fabulous. It gets very busy at lunchtime with the locals eating here which speaks volumes to me. If the locals eat here it must be good. A group of visited last night and the manager sent over a bottle of bubbly as it was my wedding anniversary. I would recommend this place to everyone who likes traditional Portuguese food.

“BEST PIRI PIRI”
Reviewed 18 May 2014

O Jorge is in a little shopping centre at the watches roundabout in Albufeira but if you ask a taxi driver he'll be able to take you straight there. What a great place to eat, we came at lunchtime and had an amazing lunch. There where four of us and we started with the couvert, then we got a portion of ribs, tomato salad, piri piri chicken for three and one portion of plain chicken plus chips, washed down with beer, water, soft drink and wine. The cost of this feast was 40 euro, we felt this was an amazing price for all we got. The staff here are wonderful, very friendly. The locals eat here so I feel that speaks volumes. Fantastic value for money

“Authentic Portuguese food”
Reviewed 30 April 2014

Don't be put off by the exterior of his place because the food is amazing. The restaurant is nice inside. It's such good value for money compared to some of the pricey places in the old town. We had piri piri chicken and it was so tasty, came with chips and salad too. We both had this and starters and a coke and half a litre of wine all for 18 euros!! We got a free shot each too.
The staff were really Friendly and polite.
