“Poor service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 August 2014

We visited this place twice, but only managed to eat once.

The food, location, prices etc were fine but the service painful.

The first time we visited it took nearly 40 minutes to get the food and drinks, and then we were almost trapped there, having asked the waiter twice for the bill and getting nowhere. I had to cross the street and go into the back to give somebody some money so desperate were we to leave. The waiter did explain that normally there are two waiters, but still...

We decided it return and give it another chance when we left early to catch a bus and had an hour to kill, after being seated for 20 minutes with a glass of water and still not having been able to give out order (we only wanted a cup of coffee!) we began to seriously doubt that an hour was not enough time at this establishment to order, drink, and pay for a coffee! We had to walk out the place and leave it....

Maybe we just caught this place on two bad days, the lady inside was friendly and it seems reasonably popular, but I would definitely not return or recommend it myself

“Lovely Food, Friendly Staff and great views!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014

We were in Almarida for two weeks holiday and eat here for breakfst/brunch/snacks on several occassions.

A good simple menu, quality food (big portions) reasonable price, friendly staff and a fantastic location.

few other bits - Backgammon boards, tvs, sunset bar, Wi-fi, and computer with printer available
and excuse the screws in the tip plate! Thankyou.

We've been coming here 14 years now and Françoise has always stood out. Great breakfast, burgers and cocktails lovely. Plus a fantastic view to the bay. Beer isn't bad either.

“best breakfast ever”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 July 2014

Go here for your breakfast - either great continental breakfast, with croissant, fresh orange juice, cake, yogurt with fruit and tea/coffee; or the full English. Also does good snacks like poached eggs, omelettes etc. Happy hour(s) for cocktails and gas station beer (litre for 4 euro) great value. Beautiful setting just on the beach. Francoise is a great character and makes you feel welcome.
