We had lunch here everyday and twice at night. The food was always tasty and well presented. Everything from a toads tie or baked potato, to the fresh catch of the day or Portuguese steak. The staff were all very friendly and attentive. On Sunday evening they had a typical Portuguese folk band to entertain us. Once you return for a second visit they make sure you have the table you want. They even had thin pipes in the ceiling that sprayed a fine cool mist to cool you down as the restaurant overlooks the beach. A particular mention to Alex and Ruben, who are two waiters that went out of their way for us. Thanks guys! Once you go to this gem you will definitely go back.

fish dishes are superb but the sides like vegetables and potatoes could be a little bit hotter but the food was amazing

Fantastic place!! Great view over the beach. The terrace is a complete sun trap at the bottom where I spent almost everyday of my holiday (to the point where I pretty much had my own table) All who work there are friendly, attentive and nothing is too much trouble. I highly recommend!!! When ordering from the main menu there are some fantastic choices especially the fish dishes. I really enjoyed the Paella (which they will happily do for one). Make sure you get the Sangria you won't be disappointed the best I had the whole time I was in Albufeira.

We loved the location of the restaurant, right over the beach and we were pleasantly surprised at the range and reasonable cost of the large menu. The waiters were all delightful and the food never failed to please. We usually try a different place every night when we're on holiday but returned here three times and actually wished we'd just gone every evening! Lovely paella!

Always happy, comical staff right on the beach, we visit this place 5/6 times a year, reasonable prices, every fish we have all had has been superb! Highly recommend from toastie sandwiches, pizzas through to fish, lamb and duck dishes all prepared with attention to detail that's appropriate for each individual dish.
