“So relaxing.”
Reviewed 1 November 2013

Stopped off at Iguana after seeing a few reviews on TA, I must have walked past countless times over the fourteen years I've been visiting Portugal. Only went in for snacks or drinks but the staff are really friendly. Scottish waitress was great (sorry for asking whereabouts in Ireland you were from!)
If you go up the steps from the tunnel turn right at the Sol e Mar walk past Hotel Rocamar and the bar is about four hundred yards down the alley on the left hand side.

“A superb location and good food”
Reviewed 28 October 2013

Try this Bistro on your route from Old Town to the Marina. It offers the best views of Albufeira from the Terrace and all the food is fresh and made to order. It is becoming very popular and at times the food service is slow but just relax with your glass of wine and soak up the views and atmosphere.
Great value and super food. Well worth a visit

“The best place to take in the views with a beer”
Reviewed 17 October 2013 via mobile

We visited Iguana 3 times whilst in Albufeira and were impressed each time. The service is excellent and the views are second to none. They have a beautiful sunny terrace looking out to sea. One afternoon we had some nibbles and a cocktail in the sun, what a fantastic place to call in for a beer or something to eat.
