I visited Fat Cats with my family during a recent trip to Albufeira, having read a number of good reviews online - however, we left feeling unanimously, extremely disappointed with the food, the service and whole experience. On arrival the staff were fairly accommodating but the food was not what was advertised and the most disappointing was the managers response... More

You didnt really complain about the meal did you. You enquired if maybe you had ordered the correct meal. I straightaway offered in a friendly way, the bun which was missing and you declined. 2 reviews is just malicious and unacceptable. Get a life. As for the miniscule fly you found I am sorry. But like I said in response... More

They have an outside terrace and actually have apartments to let right next door with a... More

We went to Fat Cat's to watch a Champion League match after reading the reviews on Trip Advisor, unfortunately the food was poor and the manager was very rude. At first the manager was really helpful, turning up the commentary for the match we were interested in despite being fairly busy. We ordered 3 meals which were quite expensive for... More

Firstly. You are not entitled to review me as you never actually bought anything. You bought in your own bottle of water and never ate anything. Your son and grandson did. So after not actually buying anything you proceed to ask me if the commentary will be on for the football. I duly obliged and turned on the commentary. The... More

We stopped by here because it was pouring out and this restaurant was only 100 metres or so from our hotel. We were pleasantly surprised by the great meals we both had. I had Cottage Pie and my husband had the fish and chips. Both meals were hot and delicious! We would definitely recommend this place and hope to get... More
