Where to Eat in Albufeira: The Best Restaurants and Bars

February 18, 2018 Deane Carmody

There are lots of beach types, and with 20 very different beaches to choose from, Albufeira delights them all. Hugging the coast in Portugal’s southern Algarve region, this prime vantage point showcases sparkling white houses with Moorish flair, breathtaking multi-hued cliffs, and old fortress remnants that ground modern amenities with a charming historical flair.

Restaurante Dom Carlos

Reviewed By nides77 - Sheffield England

Amazing 5 course dinner experience costing 130 euros with drinks included for 2 diners. Salmon layered with fresh prawn in filo pastry; spiced pumpkin soup with bursts of flavour; succulent fish; chicken with mozzarella and finally apple crumble tart- all delicious. Cosy living room setting with attentive hosts. Lovely evening.

The Cockerel Country Kitchen

Reviewed By AlexJoan - Glasgow

First visit to the restaurant and the food and service wes excellent . I would recommend you book to save disappointment . The restaurant is quite small and packed out with people waiting for tables . Steak pie and the baby back ribs was fantastic but portions could have been smaller with no complaints .

They have refurbished and it looks really nice. Food is as good as ever and we visit regularly. It is difficult to get a table in the summer so go early!! You can't book so first come first served. There is a nice bar over the road where you can wait for a table if necessary.

O Farnel

Reviewed By David G - Whitburn, United Kingdom

Was in Albuferia with friends and went to this restaurant, some of our friends had been before so it was highly recommended. This small restaurant is very old fashioned however do not be fooled or disapointed the food is excellent and so are the Chef and his staff. There is a great atmosphere inside and nothing is too much bother for the team. We didnt bother with starters as we heard the steaks & plates were huge and they were. This is one of the best Fillet Steaks i have ever tasted, seasoned and cooked (medium) to perfection wich chips, mushrooms, rice and salad. I did not take any sauce (pepper etc) i like a steak to stand on its own and it did. I will return to Farnels if ever back in Albuferia and will recommend to others, thanks mmm.

Al Quimia

Al Quimia, a gourmet restaurant, offers splendid views over the resort, a spacious Terrace and exquisite cuisine. With a more intimate touch and discreet service this restaurant is ideal for those special moments. The contemporary and creative menu is designed seasonally by Chef Luis Mourao from the freshest and best Portuguese ingredients.

Reviewed By mickeyg85 - Glasgow, United Kingdom

Al Quimia was a great modern Portuguese dining experience and not to be missed. With all of the food and paired wines focused on great Portuguese ingredients it was a fantastic meal. This was an incredibly important night and the requests I submitted to the restaurant where all brilliantly dealt with, a special thanks to Daniel who really took care of us both.

Found this place by accident. Well worth it great service, great food. And reasonably priced. Shame we were the only people there. So many people probably miss out. The tikka massala sauce was the best ever. Such great and attentive staff and very friendly . A must visit when you are in Albufeira. Thankyou very much.

Quality INDIAN RESTAURANT, Located above MC Donalds and KFC, opposite the BRISA SOL Hotel. We are open from 18:00 until 22:00 seven days, last orders at 22:00. Please ring and reserve a table to avoid disappointment. Thank you very much. Jay and the team at the SIZZLER.

Reviewed By Ralph B - Essex, United Kingdom

I don't usually give 5 stars as there is always some room for improvement but this is the exception.
The food is really good and reasonably priced but what brings it up to 5 stars for me is the proprietor, Jay. She manages to make every guest feel like a valued old friend. It makes a big difference. and a complimentary drink at the end too!
The only minus is that it is cash only but that's OK as long as you know in advance so not worth knocking off that 5th. star.
