    The staff and Johnny himself were exceptionally welcoming and we are going back for Sunday lunch. His saxophone playing is brilliant and gets the room going

    Johnny Hoopers is a great set up, with Johnny playing great saxophone and his wife being the cook. The entertainment, food and service are all top notch, everyone recognising the tunes, interspersed with the occasional story from Johnny's musical life. A music quiz and dancing top off the best night out in Albufeira .

    What a wonderful surprise! We were greeted by Johnny himself at the door and he repeatedly checked on us throughout the meal. He was so personable and he really made an effort to connect with the diners. We came on a Monday, so unfortunately we missed his live show and things were pretty quiet. The Jamaican pasta was pretty food, but the ham wrapped chicken was absolutely amazing. Would definitely recommend checking it out while in the Algarve!

    Johnny met us at the door and made us very welcome. Great food, fab atmosphere. Haven’t been to the Algarve for 6 years, so we were looking forward to going back to the bistro and it certainly didn’t disappoint. Music was great

    Absolutely fantastic night at Johnny Hoopers. Great food, superb entertainment from Johnny and an impromptu guest - joining him for a little jam session on the sax. Fabulous ambiance created with good interaction from staff and customers. Dinner, show, music quiz, finished off with a boogie on the dance floor.????????????

    We booked on line looking for somewhere to spend a pleasant sunday afternoon, we were not disappointed. The minute we rolled up Jonny was there, first names exchanged and seated in OUR preferred table under perfect shade. The waiting staff were friendly and efficient and timings perfect. Then the music kicked in with a wonderful singer guitarist accompanied by a 'skiffle' drummer, and chilling on a lazy summer sunday afternoon became where we were. Jonny kept passing by checking everything was ok and it was. Perfect day. We are going back on Tuesday for a different type of night but are convinced it will be top notch, I will let you know either way.

    Thank you for visiting. Glad you had a lovely afternoon!

    Such a fun night! Johnny and his team are so welcoming and the food, music and quiz are all great! Gets a bit hot when crowded and everyone dancing but plenty of outside space to have a breather.
