Amazing piri piri chicken

Loved this family feel restaurant, set in a little residential area it's perfect for lunch or dinner outdoors - there's even a pool in the middle so you can go for a dip if the algarve sun gets too hot!

We visit vilamoura twice a year and found this place via a taxi driver friend. It is astonishingly good. Don't be put off by the slightly strange location but believe me the food is brilliant. In the marina you will be paying 25euro for a fillet steak, at least. The fillet wrapped in smoked bacon is a work of art... More

If the weather is fine and you have kids, then O Pirata is your place. With outdoor tables, 2 pools and a trampolin, it's just perfect. The food is good and varied, we ate here many times and you can have pizzas, salads or Portuguese food. The fish is fresh and well grilled, pizzas are big enough to share, service... More

I hate walking at the marina in Vilamoura were locals are hired to pull you in the overpriced touristy restaurants. O Pirata is bit different. Different location and the food is much better though not the best you will get, but hey we are in Vilamoura, where they process tourists and locals stay far away. Typical portuguese dishes, I had...

What a little gold mine. Hidden away from noisy traffic and loud bars. In a quiet residential area. Amazing ambience and what a setting! The service was fantastic. Liliana always has a smile on her face and is so accommodating. Would recommend this little find to everyone. It has a pool as well so its a perfect getaway for people... More

Have been here a few times. Has a pool, so u can sip a cocktail next to the pool and catch some Sun. The resturant serves great food from Portuguese style, lamb chops to sea food. A real little gem!

We visit vilamoura every 6 months and pirata is definitely a favourite! We like to go late afternoon/ early evening - usually when the BBQ grill is first fired up, this way it's usually quiet and the kids can have a dip in the pool & play on the trampoline. If there's any dish I would recommend it would be... More

I don't know where Tony H went but this was one of the best eating experiences I have ever had. My Rib eye was cooked to perfection, as were the meals of all my companions.
