Best steaks we have ever had in Portugal WOW. We are a group of 8 golfers who love good upmarket food but we don't want stuffy boring restaurants. This place is alive without being OTT, it has style without being pretentious. The food was delicious plus the servings are more than generous. We tried every starter between us, all were... More

Gourmet Natural ticks all the boxes, fine food, immaculate service, beautiful gardens, delightful atmosphere, it is perfect in every way. My husband is meat lover, he will only eat fish if he has to, I love healthy fresh food and getting dressed up so we always agree on this choice of restaurant. For starters I had giant wild prawns, my... More

Having been to both Gourmet and Parilla Natural for Uruguan steaks now it's clear to see the differences the two restaurants bring. Gourmet Natural is much more intimate and was great for the party of 6 who could enjoy the atmosphere and the food on offer. The staff were really attentive especially as many guests were eating before heading off... More

Can't fault it in anyway - a truly special place for a very special meal. 10/10 on all fronts. The attention to detail at this fantastic outdoor dining establishment is worth it every time. It's expensive - but you get what you pay for ! be sure to book so as not to be disappointed. It should be your one... More

No delineation for non smokers. Coughed our way through an average meal and paid an exhorbitant price for the privilege

When I mentioned that we were off to the Gourmet Natural, I was told it was something "magical"....I have to agree. The garden setting and ambience is nothing short of exceptional and the staff really do care about making your meal more of an event than food alone. The staff are plentiful, polite and extermely attentive without being overbearing. All... More

Basic ambience of the Ermitage retained but completely different concept, excellent service, Great barbecued steaks, complemented by a tasteful wine list, good to sit outside
