This restaurant was by far our most frequent place to eat. The food was as good as any in Albufeira and the staff was excellent. Paolo and Joao Paolo made us feel welcome every time. Although they never strayed from their proffessionality they served us in a relaxed manor and made us feel like at home. Always ready to meet... More

We picked this place because it looked cheap and cheerful and as mentioned we were not going to pay higher end prices for another salad. But she was spoilt for choice, Paella was the choice of the day and they... More

We really enjoy the Piri-piri Chicken, portions size is good and the piri -piri clear sauce is not the run of the mill stuff direct from a bottle but clear and usually packs a good... More

First stop when we arrive at Portugal. Juan as always remembers us what we eat and drink. This is the smallest restaurant of the Zansi restaurants and it is a shame that this one will not be open next year only Zansi 1&2 although Juan will be in number 2.

We had been in the zansi 2 the first week which was nice as we past the zansi 3 we thought we would give the piri-piri chicken a bash again it was very good we were told to be careful of the hot sauce which did compliment the dish .The drink and food are very reasonable
