Wow!

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.

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...

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. The staff were brilliant, the service superb and the atmosphere amazing. We ate here 3 time in 9 days and have it definitely on our... More

We found this place by mistake as our hotel did not tell us about this gem. Returned four times in ten days. Being disappointed with the pool where we were staying, we were delighted to be able to spend the day relaxing by the pool at O Pirata sipping cocktails and enjoying an amazing lunch for good value in beautiful...

Great food, really well prepared and cooked. I would recommend this to anyone staying in vilamoura particularly if you're staying at the Hilton as it is literally round the corner and the Hilton food is under par. We've eaten here several times and every time the food and service has been superb. Lovely and welcoming staff, very clean place. Very... More
