Had a few lovely meals in The Bank would definitely go again the next time I am in Albuferia, staff were all lovely and helpful, The Stone Steaks were amazing you can cook them to your individual taste, the resturant is on two levels. I would say was the service was a bit slow and the customer toilets were disgusting... More

delightful hostess who helped us decide what to choose off the menu. We chose the stone steak which was great fun cooking. The meal was delicious and we would recommend it to anyone

Worst food I have had in Albufiera yet. Staff are woeful and unapologetical for poor service and tasteless overpriced 'food'. Very very poor. Would not be back in a lifetime. Atmosphere severely lacking also. Sangria is worth half a star I suppose👍

After being worn down by the guys outside trying to get you in we decided to give it a try. The food was okay and the service was average. My partner had the 'cook your own steak' on a hot slate, whilst it looks impressive he was disappointed in the standard of the steak. I had a chicken burger which... More

We ate here recently on our holiday to Portugal. Food took a long time. And wasn't up to standard to be fair. I had the chicken fajitas which were absolutely smothered in coriander which it never mentioned on the menu - just tasted like very basic frozen food. My partner had the surf and turf. Steak was not nice. I... More

We reserved a terrace table for our final night in Albufeira. We paid €10 and told to come for 7.30pm. We arrived the next day ten minutes early only to find that they hadn't reserved our table and the waitress admitted she had forgotten. Nonetheless we sat close to the terrace and were moved as soon as a table became... More

Went here for an evening meal. Hounded by the person on the street vying for business and told we would get a 10% discount. Ordered the surf and turf and 2 other steak dishes. Steak was poor quality and the prawn on the surface and turf was disgusting. It smelled rancid and looked as bad. See picture. Staff unfriendly. Didn't... More

I don't really know where to start for this one but if I could I would give this place minus 10. To begin with the staff were actively moaning about being there, particularly a waitress with dark hair who constantly complained of feeling ill. At the same time, tables were moved around us and a huge sign placed in front... More
