We have visited this restaurant twice in this trip so far. Pedro is a wonderful host, a true gentleman and makes you feel very welcome. The food is excellent quality at very reasonable prices, the wine list is extensive and good value. We can recommend the cataplana which was excellent and on our second visit we had the swordfish special... More

I usually recommend the restaurant to friends and clients who are visiting Albufeira. Although very close to the strip, it is quiet and beautiful. Its staff is warm and professional. The typical Portuguese food is very well made, and the wines are superb. It is certainly one of the best quality/price relation in Albufeira. 10/10!

This is the restaurant we always go for our first meal in Albufeira and it never disappoints. Pedro is a charming, genuinely lovely guy and the food in this little tucked away restaurant is to die for. The restaurant is a little hidden but it is just 150 yards or so up the road from the worms roundabout on the... More

This being our second time to Albufeira we were looking for something above the average .By some miracle we found it accidently one night and boy we were so impressed we visited a second time before we came home. To say the food was beautiful is a sort of an under statement,... More

Lovely restaurant with fantastic service. We had a starter of cod and tuna carpaccio followed by squid and monkfish house specials. Beautiful food in a relaxed ambient environment - highly recommended.
