Excellent: this is a high end restaurant but has a relaxed & comfortable feel to it. Four couples having a cheeky break in Vale do Lobo, all organised by the gents of the group. Needless to say, using their experience of many golfing breaks spent in the area! This restaurant isn't low cost but it is good value for money... More

A lovely setting with very attentive staff. Food also very good. House wines are decent, and good value. I guess you are paying for being in the QDL/VDL area, but overall it is quite expensive compared to other restaurants nearby in Almancil. But for a special night out I think this would be a very good choice.

We have eaten here a few times eating outside is a real pleasure very nice outside area gets a bit hot inside at times the owners and staff are great I think the wines are well overpriced and the food isn't that wonderful but if you want to eat outside in great surroundings this is the place for you

We visited this restaurant on our last night in Almancil. It had a lot to live up to. The setting was lovely. It was quite busy and had a lot of ambience. I had the monk fish curry for a main course which had a lovely flavour. Service was excellent. It is expensive but I would return.

Been on many occasions and never lets us down. The owner is great fun and so are the staff! Always have a smile on their face. Food is extremely delicious and we have tried many different meals.

We visited on the spur of the moment after my other half had been watching the football and looked very casual......didn't matter a jot. We got a very warm welcome, thoroughly enjoyed our food and will return (minus other half wearing his Crocs!!)
