Came here and had a pizza, true way to cook it with a thin base. We also had lasagne which was nice with the the correct sauce. Would revisit if we went back to Portugal.

Really good food, He had steak and I had salmon the first night. It was excellent. The second evening he had the steak again and I ate the Fettuccine del Mar. Happy to say it was excellent both nights. And very reasonably priced. Definitely worth a visit.

Thought I would try this restaurant on recommendation. I was very disappointed with the meal which was the risotto and only one choice of that. Not the usual flavours I am used to with this dish, very plain. The service was inconsistent, and I would have had dessert if I had been presented a dessert menu. I will not return.

A lovely restaurant in albufeira. We had the ravioli and the chicken lasagne both were quite nice, fresh and hot. The restaurant itself is spotless with an open style kitchen too. Finished the meal with a lovely tiramisu.

We had a very good meal at La Barca. We shared the melon and ham starter and I had the lasagna and my husband had a pizza. All delicious and the service was excellent.
