Superb Quality Food. This place deserves an award it is so beautiful

This restaurant ticks all the boxes for me for a night out to look forward to with my husband. The setting, the food, the staff and the picturesque gardens never fail to impress me every time I come here. We have never had anything short of first class service and great food.

We had another outstanding meal. I love the bar area & the exotic cocktails -so perfectly presented by the ever attentive charming staff. I want to be first on the list to try their new bar & food concept called Cocina Natural which I am sure will be of the same excellent quality as this restaurant and Parrilla next door.... More

We had a very good time at this restaurant, and both tenderloin and sirloin steaks we ordered were absolutely delicious! There is a minus point though: this restaurant is over-crowded very fast that, even if you reserve your seat for 21:15, you will end up waiting for at least 30 mins until you get a table. The staff should organise... More

Wow what class quality and attention to detail. Great quality food the steaks are to die for. The attentive service makes you feel really welcome. Such a great touch to have a live serenade from Uruguan musicians, totally unique. Fantastic ambience would definately go back tomorrow, a definate visit when in the wonderful Algarve.

Beautiful location in a walled courtyard. Took the waiter's recommendation for cocktails (something with mint and lemon, delicious!) and had a very enjoyable time. The starters were excellent and the steak very good. One minor issue was that they mixed up mine and my dad's steaks! But no matter, we loved it.

One of the best in Quinta da Lago and always delivers. I've eaten there many times and it never disappoints.The food and atmosphere is superb and yes its pricey but you wouldn't get a meal like this in Ireland for under €250, its fine dining at its best... A big thank you to Constantin who made the meal and experience... More

Gourmet Natural never disappoints. The cocktails are wonderful, staff are all very friendly, and the steak is amazing! I would recommend getting the seafood platter to start (for 2 to share).
