Cave do Vinho do Porto.
It is 200 years old, the second oldest building in Albufeira, and used to be a wine cellar. We ate outside there, and then went inside for drinks, and to listen to the singer there, who was very good. He sings there every night except Tuesday, and we really enjoyed the music. (Review by a client – I have not eaten there myself) . Rua da Liberdade, nº 23, 8200 - Albufeira, +351 289 589 144

Cabana Fresca
(In the old town overlooks the sea)
This is a must – even in October and November – this restaurant packs them in. It is a beautiful location and the food and service are both superb. Everyone here seems to eat Cataplana which is a traditional Portuguese dish. I had the fish and it was fantastic!..Praia dos Pescadores, 8200 – 061 Albufeira
