“Nice surprise”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 August 2014

We didnt know where to eat for our last night so decided to take a chance in here. We were really disappointed in the starter, had prawns and garlic bread - just wasnt for us! So then we were worried about our mains but had a fab surprise, we both ordered the fillet steak on a stone - basically they bring you out an 8oz fillet steak on a hot stone and you cook it yourself. It comes with garlic butter, mushroom sauce and peppercorn sauce with chips and veg on the side. Was one of the nicest steaks Ive ever had. With drinks it came to about 65 euros.

“Lovely lunch reasonably priced”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 August 2014

Had a nice lunch here, salmon and cream cheese baguette for me and Portuguese ham and cheese for my husband. Each was accompanied with chips and salad. We were given a jug of iced water free of charge . Waitress was lovely and cheerful and made recommendations. Specialises in sea food so the salmon was lovely. If we had stayed longer , would have eaten here again .

“Crispy Lamb”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 August 2014

Looking forward to a nice lamb shank dinner here. We ate late so maybe this was the problem but the lamb was far from succulent at that stage. It was verging on inedible due to the toughness. Served with mash which could have had a bit more seasoning. Mint sauce/gravy was way to minty and runny. Very disappointed.

Staff nice

“You can't go wrong with Cafe Bailote!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 August 2014

Having eaten here on previous visits to Albufeira it is by far my favourite restaurant. We were celebrating my sister's 40th and had a fantastic meal here. We wanted to organise a bottle of bubbly/happy birthday etc for her and the organising was done very discreetly around her, so much so that when the music and the singing started up she began to sing herself thinking it was for someone else!! The bubbly was delicious and only €18! The staff here are all lovely too particularly our waitress Sophia and the lady with the glasses who I assume is the Manageress. We had such a great relaxing time that night that we went back again the following night and it was every bit as good.
The outside of this restaurant doesn't look anything special but the inside is!
