This restaurant is only a minutes walk or so from the square in the old town, and would recommend you try it if you get the chance. The tourist menu is amazing value and to be honest everything else on the menu was as well. It was busy on a Thursday night in February, with a mix of all nationalities,... More

Popular with locals and tourists for a good reason. All the menu is well priced but we had the tourist menu described by other reviewers for €10.50. Great value, well cooked food with wine and served by friendly people. Attractive simple dining area, typical Portuguese. Definite recommend.

What a gem of a restaurant, friendly staff, good food and wine and very reasonable. For 10.50 each we had bread and olives followed by home made soup, very fresh sardines and calamari with salad and chips, almond tart and coffee plus wine. Excellent food and excellent value. Have been twice over a four day break. Definitely reccomend.

We came to Albufeira in early February on a bit of a siting out mission. Family have an apartment here and before taking a long break we wanted a nosey. This little place is just off the main square in Albufeira Old Town, it isn't posh or swanky, it is a quaint, typical Portuguese restaurant. We had been targeted by... More

This obviously spread over a month out of twenty seven evening meals we probably... More

My wife and I ate here on our last night in Albufeira. I wish I had found it on our first night, we would have eaten there regularly. We had a fixed price menu and thought that for the price that we would expect much. The food was excellent and plenty of it. Even the wine which was part of... More
