Sat outside to have a lovely dinner at a reasonable price. Quickly given a blanket by attentive staff. Nice to find somewhere good away from the main tourist area.

I had been to this restaurant before and as it was my friends first time she loved it so much we went back three times. Great food and specials on daily, prices are very reasonable. It's a small restaurant so busy season book in advance. It's a business run by two brothers so I have to say their customer service... More

I ordered the duck paté and spaghetti carbonara. Both very well prepared. My girlfriend ordered Shrimp salad as a starter and Prawns as a main course. Both very good, it... More

Great food and friendly staff. There isn't a huge menu but there are specials. I chose the Thai green curry, it was delicious. The chocolate fondant and creme brûlée were amazing. Definitely try this little spot if in old town.

We went to the old town in Albufeira for one evening during our holidays. I had read some great reviews of this restaurant so went to find it and we were very glad we did. It is just a short stroll from the much busier square and has a lovely atmosphere on a very quiet street. The food was all... More

We visited the Bistro on the first day of our holiday and enjoyed the experience so much we came back four days later. The food is good quality, well cooked and well presented and the price is more than fair. The second time we went a young family were thinking about eating there so we gave them our recommendation. We... More

So glad we found this little bistro. Great menu and special board. I had the sea bass which was well presented. My partner had the tenderloin of pork with plums and brandy. All served with friendly waiters. What more could you ask for.
