This was directly opposite out hotel but it was closed the whole week we were there (Sept 14). Shame as it looked interesting, now sure if its closed for good or if it was just holidays

I visit Albufeira several times a year as I have family here and the Royal Orchid is a must for me! It is slightly more expensive than your average restaurant but in my option, well worth it! I stick with my Thai red chicken curry...More
