“Steps Bar”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 July 2013

I have been visiting Albufeira since 1989, and have been a very regular customer of this bar since then. During this time, the owner/staff have changed a number of times, from Portugese Joe, through Jason, then on to the present with Chris and Andre. Though the hosts have changed, the atmosphere in Steps has never altered, it has always been the BEST bar in town. I have introduced a number of different people to the Steps experience, from groups of mates, my good lady, even work colleagues, none of whom have ever failed but to love their visit, many then going back independently. Chris and Andre are first class hosts, who work incredibly hard at ensuring people enjoy themselves, and seemingly never have to suffer empty glasses! No mention of Steps would be complete without a word or two for Martin, a fantastically talented entertainer who has been in residence for a number of years now. Not only a great musician, but a top guy. Lads, if you read this, I hope to see you all again soon!

Good wee bar for happy hour and has a guitarist later on who sings a good mix of songs. Very close to the hotel.

“Brilliant Steps Bar!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 June 2013

Once again another enjoyable holiday made by the crew in Steps Bar, As ever Martin was excellent, dont know how he plays night after night and for so long. Great hosts Andre and Chris. This holiday we went on the first Steps Sunset Cruise of the year, Leaving Albufeira Marina with Martin onboard for the entertainment, The crew were brilliant and served a mean Mojito! So while you are in Albufeira visit this friendly bar and see for yourself. Cheers Andre and Chris!.........and Martin, great to see you all again. Cheers

“Real entertainment experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 May 2013

For the best live music you have to go and see Martin Jonathan Live at Steps Bar in Albufeira old town. He is unreal, what a guitar player and what a repertoire and a great entertainer. If you want a real entertainment experience go see this guy, forget X factor.

“Andre, diamond in the rough.”

What a fantastic guy, Andre, you made our first Portugal trip one to remember. Young lad with personality and fun. Old enough to be his dad but he told us the places to see real Portugal and what a treat. Genuine honest and a pleasure. Thanks again, see you soon. email for steps??
