We visited here by recommendation and glad we did! The salmon was the biggest bit of salmon I've had and was cooked to perfection. The surroundings are pretty and the prices are very reasonable.

Family owned restaurant in a busy tourist area of albufeira. Honest, local cuisine at reasonable prices. We had a lovely lunch here and enjoyed the view from the terrace in the shadow. Be sure to try the typical Portuguese dishes. Free wifi available
