Dined at Cais Velho during a stay in Albufeira. After walking around town for a while, we looked for a place to eat and chose Cais Velho as it is right on the waterfront area and they were able to seat our party of 13 with no wait. Though we were happy to be able to be immediately seated, we... More

We went twice here during our ten days, the food and service were second to none and the prices are very reasonable. This restaurant is on the front overlooking the sea, not able to do it justice on here, you just need to go and try it!

Cais velho is a warm and welcoming bar/ restaurant. We stopped hear a few times to have a nice cold drinks. And something to eat . Service is good and you don't wait long to get your orders. Beer is good and reasonably priced. Food is presented well and always tasted good. Located directly by the beach front you could... More

Lovely place to eat down by the sea with a great atmosphere. Decided to go for the Chicken Roquefort just for something different. At first when it came out I wished I'd ordered a side dish the plate seamed empty, but underneath the large chicken breast and sauce was a bed of potatoes and it was enough. The creamy Roquefort...

It was our last night in Albufeira and we fancied a nice meal out. We had checked TripAdvisor prior to leaving the hotel and this restaurant was on our list. The previous reviews were excellent and combined with a sea view we were tempted. We didn't really have a starter each, we got garlic bread, olives and tuna pate to... More

Excellent food, delicious sangria and fun, attentive staff. We visit every time we are in the Algarve and enjoy it every time. It's a fabulous setting and the owners take great pride in their service and food. Nothing is too much trouble. As an aside, on this visit last week, one of our party became ill (nothing to do with... More
