Last week I visited this restaurant with a group of friends. We wanted somewhere close to The Opera House so we could eat before the show. We had mentioned we didn't have much time, and the staff made every effort to produce high quality food for all of us with plenty time to spare. The menu was mostly Portuguese and... More

Never tire of visiting this restaurant. A family run affair with a personal touch. Lovely Portuguese food, well presented with good size portions. Nothing seems to be too much trouble.

We needed somewhere to serve us quickly before a show at the Opera House so only had half an hour! Stumbled across Albilio's and they were more than helpful and served us Espatadas and lasagne which we thoroughly enjoyed and the food was wonderful and well priced. We managed to make the show in time and will definitely return to... More

Busy but friendly restaurant that serves good food. Would say the food is tasty but some dishes are highly seasoned. The service was a little slow, as personally I think they're understaffed. Although that may have been because there was a large party upstairs. Comfortable & friendly enough. Easy to find near the hospital.

Definitely the best Portuguese restaurant in Jersey in my opinion, great portions sizes and the Espetada's are always perfectly cooked to everyones liking. The family run feel is definitely present in their service, and nothings is ever to much to ask. Would highly recommend.

Very friendly and welcoming staff. They couldn't do enough for us! The seafood was also amazing! The fish soup, creole crab and seafood Kebabs (Espetadas) were all amazing to name but a few dishes. Well worth a visit!!

Abilios has been a firm favourite since I discovered it over 3 years ago. Since then have eaten here at least 50 times! It is a family run restaurant and serves excellent food as has a great friendly environment. My son recommends the Crab Creole - I recommend the Beef and Chorizo Espetada or Sardines or whole sea bass or......well... More
