I thought it was my best meal in Vilamoura! Service was great, when though the place was really busy - and like everyone is Portugal - smiling, polite and helpful! Everyone loved their food, but general concensus was that the mussels and shrimp cataplana was just fab - shrimp and clams were sweet... read more

Arrived in Vilamoura Monday night desperate for food. This place, just a few mins walk from our hotel seemed nice as we fancied fish. Busy as it was we were served in a short time and the food was great! Fresh prawns in garlic sauce for me. Fully satisfied we decided we would come back here for the last night... More

We were brought to the place as part of the optional tour. Was looking forward to it but utterly disappointed with the cataplana. The prawns were not fresh, the pork was over cooked. Even a simple vegetable soup was not satisfying. Maybe because we were brought there by tour and perhaps it would have been better if we had walk... More

Tuna salad the worst I ever had, partners chicken salad not much better. This use to be a reasonable restaurant but ingredients are from the frozen variety, floor staff very forgetful. Avoid

Went with family at 12.30 for lunch. Surly waiter took the order fairly quickly and then the wait. At 1.30 I said I was leaving just as one dish arrived . The other dishes took another 15 minutes. It really wasn't worth the wait. I had a chicken salad which had hardly any chicken and the other dishes were lacking... More

Second time here in the past year while on holidays. Both times great food and the staff are so friendly and attentive. Had the garlic prawns for start were delicious and chicken and prawns for main. A little pricey but still nice food and excellent service. Will be back

Great service, good to great food. The staff made each meal special. We dined at Mariscada three times during our stay - primarily because the food and service were excellent and the location was extremely close to the hotel.

We (party of three) were looking for a burger "joint" at the Vilamoura Marina one Monday evening, and this restaurant had a sign up offering "American burgers", so we went for it. First they got our drinks orders wrong, then they got our "American burger" wrong. Apparently the "cheese and bacon" had become "Ham, cheese and a fried egg"! When... More

This was a basic family visit to this restaurant... We had to send an omelet back three times because it was totally undercooked. The waiters/waitresses failed to inform us if certain dishes were unavailable and took it upon themselves to decide on an alternative dish. To top things off much of the food we received did not match the pictures... More

We only went here for lunch but we were very disappointed with the food. Not somewhere I would recommend. The staff were more interested in themselves than serving.
