We found this place to be nothing special. Huge portions probably even too big for children. Staff indifferent going through the motions. You have to book a few days in advance.

Me and my girlfriend had read reviews for here so we thought we would give it a go. We got there and got a table straight away (rather luckily as the place was full!) The staff were excellent and very friendly throughout. We ordered a cheesey garlic bread to share for starters and the mixed grill for 2 as our... More

We dined here three times during a week long stay in Albufeira. Service and food were excellent. The rack of ribs are so delicious that I suggested that they should be on the desert menu. It's important to pre book your table as they're full most of the time.

This restaurant is real good serving quality food at very reasonable prices, if your looking for English cuisine this is recommended, the service is excellent and all very light on the pocket. Book in advance to be sure of a table as it gets very busy during peak times.
