I really struggle in Albufeira to get a good steak and love the steaks here. They have diferent styles to suit everyone tastes. Great selection of starters to share as a group.

We loved going to O Lusitano! Great service, ambience and food! In the center of Albufeira but not in the middle of the crazyness so you can have a wonderful dinner. Will defenitely go again!

Tried the Algarve Cataplana. Lots of food and it was great. We arrived early for dinner (7 PM) so the restaurant was quiet. By the time we left at 8:30 PM, the regulars started to arrive. So if you're accustomed to eating earlier than the Portuguese this is a great choice. You'll get great food and attentive service at a... More

This restaurant is tucked away but is easy enough to find and parking is easy. The place itself is very pleasant, the welcome is warm, and the food is very good if a little pricey. They have some slightly different items on their menu which adds interest so worth a try.

We have visited this restaurant twice in this trip so far. Pedro is a wonderful host, a true gentleman and makes you feel very welcome. The food is excellent quality at very reasonable prices, the wine list is extensive and good value. We can recommend the cataplana which was excellent and on our second visit we had the swordfish special... More

I usually recommend the restaurant to friends and clients who are visiting Albufeira. Although very close to the strip, it is quiet and beautiful. Its staff is warm and professional. The typical Portuguese food is very well made, and the wines are superb. It is certainly one of the best quality/price relation in Albufeira. 10/10!
