Came here to celebrate a birthday. Service was lacking. Both cakes (chocolate gateaux and almond tarte) were stale. Great selection and reasonably priced but left very disappointed.

This place is lovely. Not what you expect seeing as it is attached to a rather tacky looking resort but that cakes are fresh and lovely and there is so much choice. A lovely afternoon treat.

Please note - This is not sea facing side, this is street side. First, if you do not know how to order pastries in Portugal this is a lesson in itself - but The Riviera does it differently. This beautiful establishment ruins it for so many by their snobby attitude an unhelpfulness - as we witnessed many times the night... More

The interior is stunning with exquisite decor and furnishings,tiling and mirrors look amazing and the outside terrace with ocean views awesome. We were killing time on our last day in Albufeira waiting for our 3pm pick up to Faro Airport when we decided to... More
