I know there was a previous topic on this, but I can’t find it.
Anyway, this was last night, looks very close to opening now.

Is that the old Pensao Albuferense that closed a few years ago?
I'll give it a try next time I'm over - after I check the menu.

Indeed that’s the one Jock. The hoardings came down during the day yesterday to give us a good look and low and behold, what we thought was public thoroughfare must be on their deeds as theirs hence we have a new decked terrace.
It all looks rather smart but when it opens, what the menu will be, prices and what the word “beat” in the title/name indicates?
Looking forward to finding out.

Yeah the hoardings were up when we were there but it did look almost finished. We too are interested in finding out what's in store.

Digressing slightly, there is a restaurant just up from here (Rua da Igreja Nova) which may ba called HB restaurant. It always appears quiet, almost closed - has anyone tried it?

It was called rustic before it was put up for sale...... spent a fortune on refurb and it didn’t take off.... next to the steps leading to bluebell bar and eddys
The eclipse grill under eddy’s is a good restaurant 👍

It’s going to be another restaurant apparently. Bought and developed by the owner of practically every bar in Old Town and The Strip. Was told this by a previous employee.
Never put off something that you could do today

My thoughts too Nazza. I won't be hurrying to try it. But they probably don't want the likes of me in there anyway... LOL

What a dull &uninspiring over priced menu that is.... no doubts it will be packed with tourists that don’t go off the beaten track to find the hidden gems that Albufeira has to offer 😜

Tourists! Dontcha just hate'em? Albufeira would be better without'em.
Just like schools would run better without kids and hospitals without patients.
