Been coming here for years. The €16 set lunch tempts you in for a great experience which never, ever, disappoints. Sitting out on the veranda on a sunny day with a lovely breeze looking at the Atlantic in the distance and being fed wonderfully cooked, beautifully served and presented, food is one of the sublime experiences in life. Alright, it’ll... More

We had a fabulous dinner with excellent service from friendly staff. Would recommend this restaurant to anyone who enjoys interesting and delicious food. The set menu for 70 euros per person had 6 courses and each one was a delight!

This place is exquisite. From the beauty of the building to the fabulous service this place is one of my finest dining experiences. Visiting for lunch immediately after its Holiday closure, we had the fixed price selection of duck confit following a delightful goat cheese in filo pastry package starter. Presentation was superlative as are my comments on this Michelin... More

Where to start - the tasting menu was stunning – Starter (after the amuse bouche) was a duo of foie gras which was... More

Romantic meal for two. We had the taster menu it was just fantastic . The wine waiter matched every dish to perfection. My desert was the best I have every had,and I have had a few. The caviar in the egg is also worth a mention canto fault anything from start to finish only that it went all to quick.

A very classy restaurant with a set menu to much which at 70 euros without wine is a good deal as you can see the time and effort that the Chef and his team put in to the food . Add this to your list if you're staying near

Wonderful food, service and atmosphere at tremendous value but why on earth does this restaurant allow people to smoke at the table? It's criminal. Not just for other guests who, no matter how far away you sit, there's no avoiding it, but also for the sake of the food which is absolutely fantastic. I've been to Vila Joya twice and... More

Sublime from start to finish. We had the 5 course set menu for dinner every mouthful was exquisite. The presentation the setting the service was elegant and discreet. Not a place to be seen but for those who appreciate cuisine practised as an art form. It is all very good value for money when you consider the ingredients and the... More
