I've lost count how many times I've had a meal at this restaurant, 2 to 3 times per visit to albufeira anyway and I go to Albufeira a lot haha I always recommend it to friends and family. Food is always tasty, very fresh and made to your liking. Fish, pasta, steaks it's all going on and the portion sizes... More

Four of us enjoyed a lovely meal at this restaurant. Garlic bread starters are large so beware. We all had pasta dishes and they were well presented and delicious. However, I am unable to say the same about the wine menu. 40 euros for a bottle of Chardonnay or Sauvignon Blanc is ridiculous. Even checked with the waiter to make... More

Not authentic Italian in my opinion! Our family had a pizza, carbonara and lasagne! All 3 we thought were poor! The lasagne was all mince very little pasta and poorly seasoned! The carbonara was very dry as was the pizza which had little to no tomato Base! Also all diners crammed like sardines on a small decked area at the... More

The title says it all really. Aslam was attentive and very entertaining. In fact he made our night. Mauro was also lovely. Food was superb. 2 starters, 4 mains, a couple of beers, a couple of cokes and a litre of rose. 4 liqueur coffees. €80. Great value for money. Off the beaten track. Perfect. Thank you for a great...

Excellent meal, great atmosphere and very helpful staff. Risotto was superb as was the sangria. Off the beaten track but close to the square, well worth a visit 😁

Just everything is beyond excellent. The food is to die for, the service is by far the best in town and the prices aren't going to break the bank. I cannot rate the staff high enough after four visits in ten days with four children who all loved it too! Absolutely nothing is too much trouble for the staff who... More
