Loved it!

Visited here twice on our recent holiday....wished we found it soon as we would have home everyday! Wonderful for families with a kids pool and large pool and a trampoline. Fantastic friendly service and the food was the best we had in Vilamoura. The sparkling sangria was to die for!

Great place to go especially if you have children as there is a swimming pool and trampoline which our grandchildren made full use off. Service was very friendly in fact on a second visit the chef showed the children how to make a flower out of a tomato. All food was freshly prepared and enjoyed by all of us. Thanks... More

Really good setting with great pool and garden. Nice trampoline for the kids. We shared a fantastic seafood dish which was excellent value. Very efficient service and very good value particularly compared to Hilton round the corner.

We were recommended to go to O Pirata, by our friends and if it wasn't for them, who live in Vilamoura, we would never have found this restaurant! It's tucked away down a residential cul-de-sac, with only about two signs indicating where they were. But once you walk through the wide entrance gate, you are instantly pleased with the setting....

Decided to revisit O Pirata after a few years. Food & service as excellent as ever, all at a reasonable price. Still our #1 in Vilamoura.

We went here a couple of times. We stayed at the Hilton and prices were expensive and an American couple recommended - very glad we tried it. Only 5 mins walk from hotel. Staff really attentive. Food very good, freshly cooked at very reasonable prices. If you like Sangria try the berry sangria - lovely very refreshing. I was hooked!... More

Food was lovely as is the setting. We were a group of 8 and they forgot one of the meals ordered and didn't realise they didn't have another meal till they started bringing food out. Not the greatest service as we then had to eat at different times but what we did eat was nice.

We walked here from the Hilton. So casual, if you are a family with children this restaurant is for you. A bonus feature a pool and trampoline for children. The tables are around the pool. The food is excellent. Our waitress recommended a fresh fish caught today. The fish was grilled and then the fish was prepared filet style at... More

opposite direction to marina just off the main busy road but glad we sought it out. It was just what we were looking for . A place with a really relaxed ambience and trampoline to keep the kids happy. The food was a very very pleasant surprise as it was for once secondary in my thoughts! I had fillet steak... More
