This was for many years our favourite restaurant. But.... It disappeared completely. Last week, on our way to O Poeta we noticed a very ugly non-portugese building instead. Could anybody tell us what happened? Has O Poeta perhaps moved to another location???

You absolutely must visit O Poente - a traditional portugese restaurant which had delicious fresh local food. We would eat 4 mains, one desert, a beer and a wine (half a litre!) which would cost €20-25 each time whereas the meal in old town was €60! It's just locals in there which means the menu is in portugese! But we... More

Visited this restaurant drawn in by the fabulous man walking around singing to diners. Excellent food - the best we had in Albufeira, my boyfriend claims best steak he's ever had, and because of this we visited a again, fajitas great, steak around meal for 2 with cocktails around €50 euros, but definitely worth it!

Ideally situated on the strip for watching the hens and stags pass by, this restaurant served great Mexican food, the borito's were superb, the staff were very friendly and the whole experience was great. If we had been there longer than one week we would have definitely gone back.

After waiting 40 mins on starters and watching the table beside us, who sat down 15 mins after us, receive their main courses we queried... More
