Food was average at the Lemon Tree. Staff were attentive and pleasant. The outdoor seating area was a little disappointing with washing on the line outside. Won't return.

Thank you Sanroc2 for your comments on the Lemon Tree about your visit in September 2015. Just to let you know from January 18th 2016 we became the new owners of the Lemon Tree. Since moving in we have rejuvenated the garden area and indoor dining area as it was in need of some TLC. Should you visit the algarve... More

My husband and myself have visited The Lemon Tree on several occassions when Robert was chef. We were very surprised to find that he had left , but decided to go and have dinner anyway. As it was January we didnt expect it to be too busy, but there were another 2 tables dining as well as ourselves. Having been... More

We were sadly disappointed with the visit as there was no atmosphere or anyone else in the restaurant. Compared with true Portuguse cuisine we had experienced during our visit to the Algarve, this was very poor and over priced. The waitress service was over fussy, as we do not require interference every few minutes topping up our glasses? The salmon... More

We are sorry to hear that you were disappointed with your visit to O Limoeiro. Unfotunately, at this time of year it is very quiet all around Almancil. It has also been a challenge starting in a new business that has been closed for 2.5 months. Comparing us to true Portuguese cuisine is a little unfair also, as we are... More

Just had Sunday lunch at the Lemon tree on the first Sunday under the new management. Food and service first class have already booked in for our next visit to Almancil. All the food was cooked just to our taste and more than enough for the two of us.

We went to the Lemon Tree as we have done many times in the past whilst we are in the Algarve. The food was as good as ever although despite it being a Friday night a number of main items were not available. The real difference from our previous visits though was Anne not being in front of house. As... More

Jim S Thank you for your review of the Lemon Tree. We are the new owners having take over in January 2016. We are sure your review would have been quite different if you had been made aware of the circumstances. We believe Anne hasn't been in the Algarve for nearly 3 years now, and the previous owner was in... More

This is no Michelin Star restaurant, but the food is exellent for an everyday lunch with a friendly service. We visited at least once a week from Vilamoura. The outdoor terrace is a bit gloomy now that the big Lemon Tree is cut down. All fish courses are recommended. And the liver.Yummy. Mr.Timo

Excellent restaurant best food we had all holiday. I have been before earlier in the year and the place was buzzing. We were the only people in the restaurant so the ambiance was missing. We had a lovely waitress and we enjoyed our private dining experience!

Visited here whilst holidaying in almancil. Reception was very good and friendly and made to feel at home. Good food but not amazing for the price. Enjoyed the experience and would recommend if you are concerned about the budget. I have been to better and cheaper places in the algarve but the ambience and hospitality is very good.
