From the moment we were shown to our table in the magical outside eating area, we knew that this place was special. The food is amazing and the service is fantastic. Like it's sister restaurant, Parrilla Natural, Gourmet has staff who immediately make you feel welcome and relaxed. Vitor and Natalia looked after us very well and helped us choose... More

This Uraguayian restauran was just perfect, It was recommended by our holiday driver who lives nearby. This is a quality restaurant. Glamourous young staff, courteous,very professional and discreet. The bar staff were smart and informed, great cocktails and the steak was probably one of the best dinners we ever had. We dined outside as did most others, plenty of space... More

Great location, Great ambiance and great steaks! Have been coming here since it opened and the last time the service was poor so we complained and the chef was really upset that we had a bad experience and cancelled the bill so this time we were a little apprehensive. We need not have worried as everything was back to what... More

Myself and my husband have been visiting here for last 5 years every time we travel to Vilamoura, best steak restaurant in the Algarve, but also very special place - fantastic cocktails. If you are travelling to the Algarve make sure to include it in your itinerary!!

A glamorous and romantic venue, with the feel of an exclusive club, where you will enjoy great food along with attentive service. Dining during the summer months is outdoors and there is also a bar where you can enjoy a cocktail before dining. We arrived without a reservation but were offered a fantastic table up on the terrace, next to... More

Last time i came to Portugal i remembered having a fantastic meal at a beautiful restaurant called Ermitage. This is now called Gourmet Natural and the new owners have updated the old villa whilst maintaining the charm of the place. Steak was great. Limited menu so if you dont fancy steak dont go. Great evening.

My wife and I had been to this restaurant when it was the Ermitage a few years ago. We were aware of the change of management but hoped it could/would be as good as it used to be. We need not have worried, of all of the restaurants we visited this week (Maria's, Julia's, Waves, Alambique - all of which... More
