We found Iguana Cafe by chance when we walked a street we hadn't visited before and decided to give it a try as we were looking for somewhere for a light lunch and the sea views appealed. A lovely little place, a bit of a hidden gem. We will remember it and return next time we are in Albufeira. Thank you Iguana Cafe :-)

Went to Iguana Cafe for lunch and is was fantastic! It’s a bit further from the rest of the main part of old town but worth going to check out...one of the nicer relaxing and quieter place

Has an outdoor seating area with an outstanding view of the sea and harbour.

The lunch was great! Bruschetta’s and a great sharing platter with some tasty sangria. The best lunch experience we had all trip

Popped in for an early lunch while exploring the Old Town and Marina yesterday. What a delightful place the Iguana is - lovely staff; great food, and a view from the terrace over the wonderful sandy beach! We decided to try the large Portuguese platter between us, comprising of cold cuts; local cheeses; anchovies; octopus; olives, and quince marmalade, accompanied by a large basket of local bread and crostini - a veritable tapas feast - delicious! The House Red is very nice too, complementing the food very well. Felt so chilled sat there, it was great! We would unreservedly recommend it to anyone!

What a fabulous find, It's wonderful sitting out on the deck overlooking the sea, watching the dolphins jump in the water, enjoying a cold beer and amazing food, service is fantastic, the resident cat sleeps anywhere on the floor, please look where you are walking, bless him he was stepped on a few times. Looking forward to going back this week, when the sun comes out again
