Me and my mum travelled to Portugal in September 2020 for a 12 night break and throughout the trip we chose to dine here for 4 nights all together. The restaurant was round the corner from our hotel and very close to the old town....The food was delicious we had algarve style prawns, lamb pot ( the speciality), mixed kebab, seafood boil and sardines. We were delighted with every meal. The desserts were just as amazing and the owner often made special desserts on some nights. The service is impeccable, the staff were so lovely and clearly took pride in working for the restaurant. Definitely my favourite restaurant that I’ve tried in Albufeira ( and I’ve been there 3 times now). I would 100% recommend anyone to go here if you are staying in Albufeira!More

We passed this restaurant on the way to the beach and old town and it looked lovely with a great menu. We decided to visit near the end of the holiday and managed to get a table without a booking. What a Fantastic restaurant. The...service was amazing, very attentive and helpful and the staff really seemed to love their job. The food was superb particularly the lamb chops, lamb pot and almond tart. I wish we had visited earlier in the holiday as we would certainly have returned several times. Highly recommended and suggest you book in advance to be certain of a tableMore
