Girls attitude behind the bar leaves a lot to be desired. Shame as it's normally quite a nice place and worth spending the extra that they charge. Time to find another watering hole. Carlos, please investigate the rather nasty smell that appears at the terrace end of the bar ( inside) I think you may have sewer problems. Oh, and... More

Great pub with friendly and knowledgeable bar staff, especially Louis (not sure of spelling). He deserves a big pay raise Carlos! Try the cocktails or gin & tonic. Fabulous. We're so used to smoke free pubs, it's a disappointment that this is allowed in The Bull.

Typical local pub with friendly staff and owners who always make you welcome. Good for sports TV. Meals are nice. Large selection of beers, wines and spirits. Late opening. Outside area with spectacular views. Children are made welcome. Well done Carlos and Nancy. See you soon. Steve & Nadine

Have spent the last couple of nights having pre dinner drinks before eating at a local restaurant. This is a really friendly bar where the staff go out of their way to make you feel very welcome. Would recommend

Living in Portugal for 3 years fish and chips are one of the meals which we miss. Normally the fish in Portugal is nothing like the UK but here in The Bull it was the best and most authentic we`ve found at a great price and served hot. Another rarity in Portugal. A bottle of Via Verde, 2 fish and... More

Five of us visited this bar on a recent holiday and found the food pretty hit and miss. Of the main courses the Kebab Fillet Beef was very nice, the Salmon passable, the Home made Steak Pie very average and the Chicken Piri Piri very poor, it was very dry and not much flavour. Would not rush back.

Went here recently and uncovered a lovely little bar with stunning views over Luz beach, drinks and food all very good and reasonably priced. Only minus is gents came in and just lit up, the smoking was a let down, especially with kids around watching the sport on tv. I seen some families who came in just walk out on... More

The Bull, English themed pub in the Algarve. Inside The Bull you could be in any pub in the UK but you are in fact in the Algarve. Lovely sun terrace to see sun go down and an equally nice terrace with same view from Restaurant upstairs. Friendly staff provide excellent Bar service and the steak I ordered on the... More

We called into the Bull Bar at short notice, the service and food were 1st rate. The steaks were cooked to perfection, and the monkfish and prawn kebabs were delicious. The views of the sunset from the balcony were a perfect end to a lovly Sunday evening. Will definitely coming back on our next visit
