Wanted to get off the main square to have something to eat and found this great wee restaurant by accident. Had the most amazing cataplana for a very reasonable price. Sat outside watching people go by and listening to other diners, a lot of whom seemed to be Portuguese which we took as a good sign. Staff were attentive and... More

The guy outside enticing people in amused me which is why I accepted the invite in to take the last table reserved just for me by the window! Lol. He recommended we go for the menu of the day as best value. I feel we should have taken his advice since deviation from this course seemed to give them problems.... More

The reviews here were promising and that's why we visited there. The restaurant itself looks a little bit tired, but they have quite a lot clients. Maybe the reason is the cheap tourist menu that offers soup as a starter, bread, main course and dessert, plus a wine or a bier for 10,50€. The soup was ok, but tasteless, sardines... More

We ate the special menu here. Soup and bread followed by main course - choose from chicken, fish, calamari, pork. Served with veg and chips and a half bottle of house wine or large beer included, as is coffee or dessert. Great value for 10.50E. The main course was so big we had no room for dessert! You won't find... More

Fabulous food and prices and excellent friendly staff. Tourist menu is an absolute bargain but lots of other choices too. Easy to find just off the main square.

Just behind the main Old Town eateries lies this quaint family run restaurant. From the moment Anile greets you on the street til he waves you goodbye the experience is excellent. Everybody tells you to avoid the 'Tourist' menu. At O Valeiro you must take the menu. €10.50 for bread, butter and olives. Then soup. Then your main, of which... More

We've visited Albufeira on numerous occasions & always come back to O Veleiro. Great classic Portuguese food and so accommodating. Can't believe they make any profit when they are so apologetic for having to charge an extra €2 over the €10.50 - 4 course tourist menu (which includes half bottle of wine!) for larger cuts of fish or steak. They... More

Choose from the tourist menu at 10.50 euros per person including drinks or the a la carte and you will still leave feeling very well fed. Food is very well cooked and well presented at a very reasonable price. We ate here twice, the first time it was quiet and we felt that we were served to quickly with two... More

Stopped over this resto during our afternoon stroll after reading the great reviews. Had piri chicken, ribs, fanta and half a liter of green wine for 19 euro. And above all the food and service were great.

Thank Bart V
