“Favourite Cafe, great sea views”
Reviewed 8 October 2013

We visit the Iguana regularly when we are staying, in Albufeira, its our favourite cafe. The owners Lorraine and Rui are always very friendly and the service is excellent. We enjoy sitting outside, overlooking the sea drinking cocktails and eating the lovely salads, paninis and toasties. We highly recommend this cafe and will always be regular customers when ever we are in Albufeira. Judith and Pete. .

The staff are English and Portuguese and they are very friendly. The food is very good and they serve all types of drinks from Tea, Coffee, Fruit Juices, Soft Drinks, Beers and Cocktails! The view from outside on the terrace is fabulous and definitely worth a look and take a bite and drink while you're their.
