We came for dinner, reviews were really good but I was disappointed. To start I had the calamari which was frozen and all batter, pretty grim. He had the mozzarella and tomato, you would think you can't go wrong but tomato wasn't great quality, quite watery like what you would expect in England and mozzarella was tasteless. For main I...

We tried lamb chops, something a little different. They were very tender, but merely came with pretty average fries, which was a disappointment. Choice of starters is quite poor.

We enjoyed the food at Os Arcos so much we visited twice in one week. We rang ahead and booked a table for our first visit, which was a good job because while we were there three or four couples were turned away. The restaurant is absolutely lovely, tastefully decorated and the atmosphere is very relaxed. The very friendly waiter... More

We visited this restaurant because of the reviews on TA and we are so pleased we did. It was a Friday night and very busy, one man worked front of house and did an amazing job. The food was awesome, the wine even more so, if we returned to Albufiera this would be the first place we dined. We absolutely... More

This restaurant was recommended by friends who have visited Albufeira several times, and it didn't disappoint. The starter of garlic prawns were delicious and sufficient, and were accompanied by garlic bread. The black pork was tender, tasty and cooked to perfection. Unfortunately, no room for dessert. One of our party had the sea bass, which looked extremely fresh and was... More

We decided to come here to try some traditional Portuguese food - and we weren't disappointed! The restaurant itself is very intimate, so I'd definitely recommend booking in advance. There was just one server, but that really didn't matter as he was attentive, friendly and knowledgable about the food being served. When we were settled, the fresh catches of the... More

We have visited this restaurant many times over several holidays in Albufeira. Our holiday would not be complete without a meal at Os Arcos. During our recent 5 day trip from the UK we visited twice and yet again the standards of service and food were of the highest order. The Sea Bass is cooked to perfection and served filleted... More
