What a GEM!

I've been to this restaurant many times and have never been disappointed. Excellent menu - something for every body and outstanding service. If you are ever driving by don't hesitate to try this restaurant as once you've been you'll want to return time and time again! Tristan H

Visited the Iconic Lemon Tree restaurant in Almancil yesterday and was sadly underwhelmed. Maybe it is early in the season and therefore very quiet or maybe it is the the missing icon ......... the new lemon tree has not quite reached its full potential ! We wanted to eat outside which I remember as having a lovely atmosphere, but the... More

Have visited many times and always for lunch in the rear open terrace...always had good food from the reasonably priced menu......but the terrace needs some t.l.c....and quality of the calves liver needs addressing........but well worth a visit

We stumbled into The Lemon Tree not expecting much but were blown away by a delicious fish soup served piping hot. (By the way - see earlier reviews - if it was out of a tin, please could we have some tins to take home. ;-) ) The soup was followed by an excellent poussin in tarragon with a mushroom... More

The ingredients are fresh and of the best quality and always value for money. I lunch in Almancil regularly and lunch at the Lemon Tree never disappoints.

I have been going to the lemon tree with my family for years. It's one of my favourite places to eat in the Algarve. We can always rely on there being something for everyone with the menu being so varied. I particularly enjoy the fresh summery salads and the comforting potatoes and chorizo. The staff are so welcoming and the... More

Visited this restaurant after reading many positive reviews on TripAdvisor. From the minute, we crossed the threshold, we were made to feel welcome by the front of house staff & also later by the restaurant owner/chef, who made a point of visiting each table and ensuring that all had been well with the food. We both had starters, main courses... More

Delicious lunch in comfortable relaxed surroundings with delightful staff, not overly attentive but there whenever we needed something. Great value meal, three courses with house red wine and a beer before for 52 euros. Easily worth more. Delicious home made pate with perfect amount of salad on the plate and a fish soup to start. Monkfish and sea bass for... More

I note from a previous review sombody wrote about something out of a Tin, well I can assure you if the Fish Soup was out of a tin the guy that put it in the tin would be worth a fortune. Robert's Fish Soup is the best I have ever had and he even gave me the recipe, but I... More

i have read the 4 and 5 star reviews and whilst I agree with parts of them don't get carried away with the fact that the owner and the young waiter are very pleasant and amiable which some times overshadows the main subject which is the food. The mushroom couvert were bland and obviously out of a tin. The main... More

Dear Sir, I would like to thank you for coming to visit The Lemon Tree earlier this year. It was good to note your agreement with most of our 4 and 5 star reviews, of which there are approx 200. I have always used only the best quality produce and certainly not the cheapest, even though it could impact prices.... More
