A wonderful little Bistro set up a side street from the mad happenings of the area below in Albufeira Old Town. I had read up on TA about this place and it ticked all the boxes. Very popular and so nice to see it so busy at the beginning of May don't know how they cope in the high season... More

Visited here on our recent stay in Albufeira. Food & sangria were excellent,as were the staff,especially the multilingual owner.The prices are on par with other restaurants nearby,but the quality & presentation was far better.We had planned to dine there on our last night,but sadly the heavy rain prevented this.Give The Bistro a try,you will not be disappointed !

We had a lovely meal here great service and great food. The smoked duck special was really flavoursome as was then cod Provençal, the sea bass was also very good. Everyone cleaned their plates. Would definitely recommend.

We booked a table at this lovely little restaurant because of the reviews on TA and we were not disappointed. The meal was fabulous, the service impeccable. Front of house is run by 2 brothers while another brother and their mum work their magic in the kitchen. We loved it.
