After visiting albufeira in October and not being able to get a table at I'l Brigante, it was definitely a place we wanted to visit this time around. Really wish we hadn't bothered, left feeling a bit underwhelmed and disappointed. The service was OK, there was a waitress called Maria I think who was fab she was lovely, really friendly... More

Had been recommended this restaurant. Had a table outside and the staff went out of their way to provide a great service and make us feel welcome. The menu was fantastic with lots to choose from however I was personally disappointed with the standard of food and thought it was very average.

As it was a little chilly blankets were brought out for us as soon as we were seated, we both opted for the... More

We have tried various different foods on the menu including filllet of steak, as well as steak on the stone, pizzas, and have also had the lobster. Without fail, the food has been excellent and is reasonably priced. It is a... More

We called into the Restaurant after walking around the old town and the food was excellent. I settled upon the Roasted Rabbit with potatoes and Vegetables and it proved to be every bit as succulent as it sounded. I Actually sent my compliments to the Chef I was so impressed. My wife had Cabonara and she also complimented the staff... More

In the area again with family and friends, why take a chance, just visited this place again, and again great food at reasonable prices, very friendly staff and still a homely feeling. Great little friendly bar over the road too (Geordie Viking) and Sherrys bar next door.

We visit here regularly for the lasagne which has to be the best tasting and best value at under 5 euros on the menu del dia. Also had the prawns starter which were plentiful large and tasty. Definitely worth a try

We stopped at Il Brigante for lunch, we have been travelling around Portugal for the past month, our experience with pizza had not been great, and we were reluctant to order pizza again. We decided to give Il Brigante a try, my husband had pizza, and I had the lasagna. Food was great, and we would definitely recommend this restaurant.... More
