“Excellent service and good food”
Reviewed 20 February 2012

My family and I just loved this restaurant. My husband had the portuguese steak and I had the sea bass and both were delicious. Our children chose meals from the childrens menu and were not disappointed as the portions were so generous. We visited here twice in our 7 day stay in Albufeira as we were so impressed. On each visit the restaurant was full and we were very fortunate to get a table and this was at 6.30 p.m. The staff are very welcoming and polite and extremely child friendly. Can't wait to return in April 2012.

“A haven Off Season as well as high season”
Reviewed 2 February 2012

Was in Albufeira old town again in January, not many restaurants are open that month but Jose & Sergi were, same deals as always, no price increase on a supply & demand basis, busiest establishment in the old town & still full of locals, friendly & welcoming to all tourists, quality local dishes at very good prices, you can't get better than that, unless you are looking for something like full Engish breakfast, Hamburger & chips etc. Will accommodate a request for a dish not on the menu, given notice, we again ordered the Chateau Briand for the weekend, lovely, one of the best we have tasted & it was € 30 for 2 people ( plus bread, olives etc & wine ) a real gem

“A bit disappointing”
Reviewed 23 January 2012

True, you can get a meal here for 5 euros, but by the time you have added a drink, bread etc. you can easily double this. It is, however, one of the few Portuguese restaurants in the town.

“Try the Cataplana!”
Reviewed 7 January 2012

Wow! Really quaint restaurant, good value for money and the food is good too. What more could you ask for? My boyfriend and I recently visited Albufeira and frequented this restaurant for both lunch and dinner. The restaurant offers both a number of choices for "Pratos do Dia" (plates of the day) as well as excellent service.

If you do decide to go there - trust Me, order the Cataplana!
