After a nice day on the beach we had a drink here on our way up the steps, we viewed some folk eating.... the food looked average but the place looks very scruffy & the toilets stink.... but then it’s a beach cafe.... sand with everything. If you talk Portuguese then you’ll understand what the owner calls you & where he tells you to get off to if you complain.... I am sure I thought he said a couple of rude word to one couple who asked for a breakdown of the bill.
We asked a waiter to recommend a dish... thinking it can’t be as bad as it looks, a small portion of dried cod & 1/2 dozen boiled salty spuds got dropped off at our table.... enough to feed a couple of 5 year olds, thinking this was a starter... but no this was our main meal.
It’s was shamefully poor quality & all below average... The shock came when the bill was presented.... €100 +.....
If you go ask the price first as I didn’t.... & fainted when asked to pay, there are no prices of anything advertised, only by weight, & never ever ask one of the waiter to make a suggestion.... it’s a costly mistake. I am guessing we paid the waiters wages for the week.... & we got a rubbish meal in the doing.
I see on the reviews left by other people that we are not the only people that have been taken advantage of by this shocking, horrid beach cafe..... the toilets are well below suitable for a beach cafe never mind a bar offering warm food.

As we hired sun beds opposite we had lunch here. Coffee, water, wine, fish, chips and salad and wife had a tuna salad. Came to €19 (cheapest meal we’ve had in Albufeira). It was very tasty and staff were very friendly and attentive.

We saw the price of the fresh fish and seafood (lobster was on sale for €110) so gave that a miss. Maybe next time.
