I've been to this restaurant a number of times and definitely worth trying if you're a meet eater. The steaks are cooked on a Uruguayan grill and are really tasty. They've a nice selection of starters, sides and cocktails and the waiter was happy to recommend a very nice local Portuguese wine when we asked. The only let down was... More

Went to Gourmet Natural with a couple of friends for a birthday treat and, as always, loved the setting. Beautifully decorated courtyard of an old farm never let's you down. The food was OK - my steak was just not right and I expect a steak restaurant to get it right every time. Not sure if it was slightly overcooked... More

You go to this restaurant and you really have a lovely night out. Very friendly welcome with a nice drink at the lounge, following by our meal. The steaks are amazing, although I have had a better Ribeye, but the fillet steak was amazing! The service is very good and the staff walks around with a smile on their faces.... More

Thls restaurant is worth a visit just for the setting, a beautiful restaurant and bar, set in a lovely garden area. Our table was situated under a beautiful white bourganvillea, so lovely. I ate empanadas (up there with the best I've eaten!) and went for the steak as it is a serious steak restaurant. The steak was really good and... More

The welcome was one of the most friendly we have had on this years holiday and the staff really kept an eye on you without you noticing! I was just thinking my wine glass needed topping up, and the bottle appeared - "just like that"! We could not not fault the service, I think it was Natalia who looked after... More

I recently dined at Gourmet and had an incredible time. I wouldn't define it as simply a meal, the whole evening was an experience. As I walked in I was kindly greeted by staff and felt welcomed and comfortable. I am currently traveling through Europe by myself, so was pleased by this fantastic hospitality. I ordered a steak.

I love this place for its intimate stunning seating area in a beautiful courtyard, it's wonderful cocktails, pricey but worth every euro! I love the food, HOWEVER......... I wish instead of charging you 30 euros for a steak, then 3 euros for the sauce, then 5 euros for potatoes and 5 euros for veg, they would just charge you 40... More

Faultless service and great venue. They really can't do enough for you at this place. So genuinely feel bad posting a poor review. Good drinks especially the Gin Mare with summer fruits as an aperitif. The bill for 5 was €218. My wife had sea bass that she tells me was lovely and we had some nice wine recommended by... More

great evening at gourmet natural. one of the orders came under-cooked - but the manner in which it was dealt with was superb. save room for desserts - we tried most of them!!! they were all sensational. great service and once the team had rescued the order, all the food was perfect. would definitely go back and highly recommend.
