This is a very nice venue for a quiet relaxed dinner. The staff welcomed us at the door as if we were long time friends and treated us that way for the entire meal! The food was uniformly excellent as was the service and we...thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. I’m not sure of the relationship to Fred Astaire but he is clearly the “Freddie” in Mr Freddie’s. His picture is prominently displayed. Our server asked us where we were from and when we told her we were American she said that they used to have Americans all the time but recently not as many. So, if you are an American reading this and you are visiting the Faro/Almancil area of the Algarve give this place a try. You won’t be disappointed!More

We had a lovely dinner for two. Very welcoming, great cocktails, lovely appetizers, steaks cooked in the main room and awesome crepes Suzette for dessert. The staff is so accommodating and very friendly.

Ate here twice this week and it was simply fantastic. A lovely welcome and then the fabulous food. We both had the pepper steak on both occasions and it was excellent. My favourite restaurant in the Algarve. The food is generous and very tasty, try...the flambé steaks and the trilogy desert, you won’t be sorry.More

First time we’ve been to the restaurant and we were made to feel very welcome. Really enjoyed the food. The rack of lamb was described as perfect. The staff were extremely friendly and couldn’t be more helpful. Very nice complementary glass of port to finish...our meal. We will return.More

Food okay, good service but poor indoor decor but the indoor dining room smacks of 1970`s and requires a makeover to justify price

Grossly overpriced. Steak Diane no longer flambé at the table - In fact I do not think that our steaks were flambéd at all. Starter of goats cheese massacred by a heavy handed dollop of honey which was not explained / described on the menu....One of my favourite restaurants in the Algarve now in the reject pile.More

Following a recommendation from our accommodation hosts, we booked dinner at Mr Freddie's and were not disappointed. Sitting under the living, natural canopy, next to the trickling water feature was magical. We had the tasty couverts (bread, ham, peach, cheese, olives) then monkfish and king...prawn kebab with saffron rice (€26, worth it!) and kid's fishfinger and fries (€16) as mains. Dessert was equally delicious (one ice cream sundae and an apple pie that melted in your mouth). The staff could not have been friendlier - we would travel to come back, even if we were not staying locally. Definitely recommend!More

I will keep this short and sweet as no one wants to read really long updates. The place is fab, the noise levels are spot on, the staff are amazing, the food is to die for. Don’t be put off by the roadside location and...the plastic seats. They are unimportant what’s important is the ambience, food and quality service and Mr Freddie’s has them all in abundance I will be back🌞More

Don’t be put off by the plastic chairs (actually quite comfy) or the roadside settings. What’s important is the ambiance, just right and not too loud. The staff and general service - This was exceptional and finally the food and that was a knockout😎 Between...us we tried prawns, Portuguese steaks and I had the fillet in brandy and cream sauce and let me tell you it melted in my mouth. The puddings were equally sensational. Don’t hesitate to book up, take your family and enjoy this fabulous enclave in the Algarve.More

After we nearly took out their lovely potted plants with our stick-shift rental, we didn't expect to be welcomed so warmly, yet Leza came outside to assist us with parking, and cheerfully ushered us in to their pretty & cozy terrace dining area with its...relaxing fountain. Leza was so amazing...the perfect combination of friendly and professional. She expertly recommended a fabulous local wine which we loved. Couvert was excellent and not overdone. My husband enjoyed the steak with pepper sauce and I loved my filet of sole. The chocolate mousse for dessert was the perfect finish. We give this restaurant an enthusiastic recommendation and will rebook this May when we return to the Algarve.More
