Visited last Thursday evening, with my husband and parents. We reserved a table and pleased we had done so, as they where busy. Our table was prefect over looking the marina as the sun was setting.
Food was really good, very flavoursome, so very different ideas mixing fantastic tastes. King Prawns where delicious. Nice selection of wine, good presentation and excellent service, this is our 3rd visit and we will continue to return. I've been visiting Albuferia for many years and this is certainly a favourite. Well worry a visit, but try and book to avoid disappointment.

View great!
Food great!
Vine great!
Desert great!
Staff great!
The sunset is beautiful from the restaurants viewpoint over the marina.
The food is tastefull and a great size.
The house vine tastes round with a gentle finish.
Brownie heated with Chocolate, bits was to die for!
The staff was joking with costumers fast at clearing tables. Heartily remembering and greeting guests who revisited the restaurant after 10 years.
My wife and I hope, that will be us, when we revisit the restaurant.
We give the staff and the restaurant our most sincere recommendations to others

It sits by itself just off the roadside on the way to the marina area of albufeira, a 10 minute walk from the old town, it has a menu you won't find any where else. .

I organised a trip to this restaurant for my best mates stag do, there were 20 of us and I needed to get it right. After the meal I got so much praise as everything was spot on, the food was amazing, the setting overlooking the marina is gorgeous and the whole evening just flowed perfectly.

I had the curried chowder to start with and I've not had something like it before, it was immense. Followed by a lovely cut of Iberian Black Pig and washed down with a nice house red. Very reasonably priced made the meal faultless. Would go back in a heartbeat.

Thank you so much Johann for making it a great night to remember. We'll see you again I'm sure of it.

We were part of a large group of friends and went for Sunday lunch on 23rd March as the restaurant came highly recommended. We absolutely loved the location, stunning views of the sea and Albufeira marina. Plenty of shaded eating areas and outside chairs and settees to sit in before or after lunch. Great service by the two charming owners - but most importantly they served lovely Sunday roasts (with a few difference choices available) or you can choose from their menu. €8.95 for the roasts and what a portion! A lovely local musician played some great music and created a wonderful happy atmosphere. I could have stayed all afternoon and night. Highly recommended.
