This was our second year in the Algarve and on our 7 night holiday we ate 5 times at the Xenia restaurant and had lunch at the pool bar once. The staff, service and food was first class on every occasion, our party of 2 couples could not fault this restaurant for the menu choice and value for money. The barbecue evening with a really good band " Neverland" was outstanding and provided a great holiday atmosphere not to be missed.

The owners of the restaurant and staff made time to talk and get to know their clients, whilst keeping a good professional level of service.

Our party of 4 are strongly considering a return to the "Villa Albo" situated next door to the Xenia restaurant for next years holiday.

I have been coming to the Algarve for over 20 years and have seen restaurants come and go. Thankfully Xenia's has been consistently reliable over the years. The service is slick and the food reliably good. Over the years, as a family, we have kept going back to Xenia's and witnessed the changes as they have successfully evolved in line with the ever changing economic climate. It is very family friendly.

Headed by the effervescent Gay, who has been at the helm for many years and now assisted by the affable Ronnie, you are made to feel incredibly welcome. Members of staff, such as Flavio and Nuno, have been part of the team for several years and are both integral parts of this tight knit and well organised team.

The Pool Bar/Restaurant offers a reliable and affordable menu from 10.00hrs to 19.00hrs in a relaxed and informal setting, overlooking the stunning pool. Or, the main restaurant offers more fine dining. During the season, Xenia put on Curry Night and a Barbecue Night every week which is excellent value and both nights feature live music.

From a teenager's perspective, there seem to be Internet connection everywhere! So, this is fun place to be for all the family.

We started coming here around 7 years ago and have kept coming back since! The food is always excellent, particularly at the pool bar during the day. There's always a great atmosphere in the evenings, notably the curry and barbecue nights with live music. The really friendly staff behind the bar ensure its always a good time!

We've been visiting Xenia for more than 10 years each Summer. It is consistently good quality food, well presented and you always feel welcome. They do a brilliant BBQ night too. Can't recommend highly enough!

We returned to Portugal yet again and also visited the cafe bar at Xenia for lunch and also the restaurant on two evenings. You cannot fault this establishment, with it's crisp white table linen and dainty shiny cutlery. Mine hosts, Gaye and Ronnie make you feel very welcome. The menu has a excellent choice and the food is beautifully presented.
