This is the third year in a row, I have been to this restaurant following recommendation from a family friend. It's a little away from the main drag however food and service makes it worth the taxi ride. Amazing location overlooking the marina. The rooftop terrace provides a good place to have a relaxing beer in the sun. Mixture of... More

A very lovely atmosphere away from the overly touristy area of old town Albufeira . We were greeted by Pedro, with exceptionally great service, jokes and warmth as he not only helped us pick the best meal but gave us many recommendations about the area and how to spend our last day in Algarve. We drank delicious wine and ate... More

We only went here as it was it was next to our apartment but we're glad we did! The service was exquisite and a special mention to Pedro, who was super friendly and very informative about the food and surrounding areas. The goats cheese and asparagus starter is a must and the wine was superb.

We had a family meal here & really enjoyed the whole experience. It's a bit of a walk, on the way down to the Marina, but well worth walking past the likes of Rossio to get there. The staff are very pleasant and the food was excellent. The menu has steak, fish, chicken & pastas on, so something for everybody.... More

The restaurant has a beautiful setting, with fantastic views of both the Marina and the sea. Coupled with wonderful food, charming service and gorgeous wines, it really is a must do venue. My wife and I have dined there five times and have loved it every time. AND it is really good value!
