The bar is located in one of the side streets in Old Town Albufeira. The owners are really lovely and attentive and have a great sense of humour. There are a few tables outside on the street and plenty of room inside the bar, both areas include TV screens.

There was plenty of choice of tapas which looked delicious but we never got to try it. We came here to watch one of the World Cup matches, the atmosphere was good and we had complimentary olives which were very tasty. The drinks are very reasonable and the sangria was very refreshing and fruity, I'm not a wine drinker but i would definitely recommend this if visiting.

Visited this tapas bar after seeing reviews on trip advisor. It’s located around the corner from the main square in the old town. Tapas was so tasty and very good value for money. The quality was very high and the dishes we had ranged from €3 to €4. All together it came to €45 for 7 tapas, 4 large beers, a cocktail and a water. We will definately be return. The staff are very friendly too!

We had read good reviews of this place and decided to try it tonight .
We wanted to eat outside and as all tables were full .We went inside to ask when an outside table would be likely be free as it was evident some people had finished their meal .
The guy we asked just shrugged his shoulders , said ‘ I couldn’t say ‘ and walked off !
Needless to say we left and won’t be going back
Just remember , first impressions matter !!

Firstly I would like to set the scene, family holiday with two hungry kids and picky father in law. If this is you, this restaurant is probably not for you.

I am not going to discuss the above as that’s not a fair representation, however a few orders got lost in translation.

The food was very tasty and exactly as I expected I am open to a varied cuisine and don’t mind trying new things. So I loved picking and choosing the tapas and share selections. We found it difficult to modify this, no deviation from the set items seemed possible.

As mentioned in the title don’t go here expecting a quick turnaround, the chef cooks in his time, with only 2-3 tables being given menus at once.


I do appreciate this review send mixed signals with what’s seems quite a lot of negatives.

But honestly go with an open mind and it is a
Wonderful experience.
