Arriving the concierge treated us as if we were the only people there, by our last name. We had a drink in the courtyard bar to start were Portuguese Fado, and barbecue sardines were served to a private party (a good Portuguese touch). A golf buggy was waiting to take us to the restaurant. I picked a different table than... More

I would love to write a review of this restaurant but have waited 2 months for a confirmation of our booking. This is after 'phoning them 5 times and somebody is going to call us back! I wouldn't mind we cancelled our booking at Vila Joya. WAKE UP MANAGEMENT!!

We didn't stay at the hotel so booked through E-mail a couple of months before our visit. We got a reply promptly and was asked about allergies etc. When we arrived we jumped on a golf buggy which took us to the restaurant. We had asked for a table on the balcony, which we got. Your missing out if you... More

I don't understand why Ocean still didn' receive a third Michelin-star. It was our third visit to Ocean. In no other restaurant you will find this spectacular view on the ocean while enjoying Hans Neuner's dishes. "This is yous space", the staff said. They are right! When you are already in the mood by the fantastic atmosphere en service at... More

Third visit to this two Michelin star restaurant. We sat on the balcony overlooking the Atlantic coast and let ourselves be spoiled. The food is inventive without being pretentious, staff understated but extremely knowledgable when questioned, the sommelier brilliant when explaining details regarding the production of Portuguese wines and others around the world. The focus as always on products from... More

The setting is beautiful, the presentation creative and well-adapted, the subtle balance of flavors and textures extremely deftly handled. We chose the 5-course tasting meal, and I added the wine tastings to accompany it. There is just enough theater to add interest (such as the variably sized goat milk butter pearls served in an oyster shell) without ever turning into... More

I am not a great lover of fish due to the dislike of bones. The stone bass I had tonight was delicious and utterly bone-free, as was the sea-bass that the children ate. The staff are friendly and patient, the setting is lovely and, unlike other reports, we had no mosquito bites!
