We were sent here as a surprise from our children for our silver wedding anniversary. It was amazing. From the minute we arrived we were treated to champagne cocktails, a golf buggy took us to the ocean restaurant, and we were seated on the balcony overlooking the amazing Atlantic. Our food was served with such imagination, beautifully presented, and the... More

So finally after escalating to senior management somebody called us back to confirm our reservation. Yes we can have a table on the terrace (months earlier when we first booked that would have been good to know) and as it was a fixed menu what don't we eat, no pork please. Buggy to the restaurant, many apologies for the confusion... More

We chose the 5 course Culinary Moments with wine flight and did not regret a single choice of this total dining experience. The food, where to begin? Intensity of flavours, ingredient combinations, presentation it was exquisite and truly enhanced by the sommeliers selection of wines. From our arrival at reception to our evening farewells every member of staff displayed truly... More

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 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.

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
