As a family group of 10, getting reservations is tricky enough if you don't book ahead of time. What makes it harder is if your concierge service actually forgets to book you in for a meal. This is what we found out on arrival at Gourmet Natural during August. To the shock of the maitre de, a group of 9... More

Tonight we were treated to a gastronomic delight. We were a group of 14 not easy to please on any occasion. Tonight we were served a multitude of starters, main courses and deserts each was better than the other. We started with a selection of cocktails each was stupendous and very creative. This was a highlight of our holiday so... More

Following a massively disappointing dining experience elsewhere earlier in the week we scoured the online reviews for a decent restaurant to provide the antidote. I'm pleased to say Gourmet Natural came up trumps. We booked on line and on the day of the booking they called us back to confirm (nice touch) Tucked away outside Almancil the restaurant is well...

Spectacular steaks from Venezuela in a beautiful setting. Also try the beef pasties for starters if you have a big appetite. Quite expensive but well worth it.

Absolutely wonderful surroundings / food / service and music from a barber shop quartet. Get away from the Marina for a night and spoil yourself rotten

A fabulous restaurant, in a beautiful outdoor setting, perfect for a very special dinner and memorable summer's evening. Attentive service and exceptional food and bar service. Smart-casual and sophisticated, suitable for well behaved children only! Steaks and tiger prawns are grilled to perfection. Vegetarians can easily be catered for, with salad options and several vegetarian side dishes. I reviewed this... More

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. There is no other garden restaurant which comes... More

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
