Excellent

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

Strange location out of the centre and based around pool so great for kids. Don't let this put you off though. Tries the Cataplana on our first visit and this was excellent. Second time both had fish but the cod I had was a little crispy on top and served in a lot of butter. With couvert, drinks and 2... More

I ordered garlic mushrooms and coconut/mango chicken. The food really was good! Service was also very friendly, the setting is quite good although a bit tucked away (keep following the signs). We sat outside under the grapevines. I was genuinely surprised that we spent only 50 euro at the end of it. Excellent value!
