Went here twice in oct. Surroundings are superb and the food is mainly steaks. They are cooked to perfection but I do object to charging for all the extras in particular your choice of sauce. This should be included in the basic price. The staff are good and helpful. We had a prawn starter and ribeye steaks. Could not fault... More

We visited on a wet October evening so it was quiet. When I have visited before its always been busy. As ever the food was good, but its way over priced €28.50 for a steak, with sides extra, is a bit much, even for that part of Portugal. A big tick for the restaurant was their excellent service and attention... More

We had dinner at this fabulous restaurant. We sat outdoors, the restaurant has a great ambience and excellent service. The food was fantastic. Our steaks were cooked to perfection. The salads and sides were extremely delicious. I would highly recommend eating here while at Algarve.

Visited in early September. Was told it was very good if a little pricey. As it was a friends birthday we decided to give it a go. Fabulous evening, Staff were excellent, food and wine were of the highest order. Sat outside on the large terrace. Really could not fault the experience. Not the sort of place to visit every...

We ate here on a beautiful summer's evening. We shared the tiger prawn starter, thankfully, as it was huge and more suited for a main course portion. Our steaks were cooked to perfection, medium rare to rare, just the way we like it. We shared an apple crepe for dessert, with caramelized sugar. I don't know what happened to the... More

We went to Gourmet Natural for the last meal of our holiday in Portugal - and really wished we'd ventured there earlier! It was fantastic. Slightly out of the way (although walkable form the villa we were staying in - perfect!) The evening started with pre dinner cocktails for both us and the children (non alcoholic for them!) and the... More
