The least friendly bartender in the World. Let's not spend too much time on him, his sermon on his saint-like behaviour was pure drivel to hear. At least the Japs did the correct thing with St. Vincent and lobbed his head off. Payment demanded immediately on entrance, but we were never going to stay for another. Jason can never truly...

Visited as used to be owned by a friend-wish we hadn't bothered. Only 2 others in whole bar and barman who loved the sound of his own voice, which was loud over the music, which was also very loud. Expected to be busy as happy hour, but still expensive for 2 beers. No atmosphere and glad to leave after 1... More

This was one of the nicest bars we visited in the Old Town of Albufeira on our recent holiday. Typical of so many of the pubs and bars in this area the bar has a nice pubby interior with great decor and furnishings and plenty of seating options both inside and outside but what sets this bar aside is the...

Nice enough bar with very good resident singer which considering its location is very busy. The draught beer is not very good and is overpriced but the bottled beer is cold and ok. As said we used it as a meeting place and was perfect for us

Love it in this really quaint super cute bar. The drinks are reasonably priced and you can take them outside to the chairs alongside the wall and take in the ambience of the Old Town. The guy playing the guitar inside is ace and will accommodate most requests. Perfect little bar - we'll be back.

We went here almost every night because the live music was so good and it was a nice cosy bar where you get a good seat and most people there are there for the music, so they are paying attention to the signer and not chatting too much. Martin Jonathan is a great guitarist and singer and has such a... More
