The restaurant is in a delightful setting and we were entertained by a very capable singer on the poolside. The dourness of the receptionist was offset by a friendly and attentive waiter. The menu looked quite exciting but it was pricey. The melodious tones of the vocalist helped us endure a twenty minute wait for drinks. We waited for about... More

This is not a bad restaurant by all means but I think it has pretensions to being better than it actually is. When I visited, the food was fine (I had fillet steak in Gorgonzola sauce, which was very nice) but the service wasn't as good as it might have been. It was the most expensive restaurant we visited during... More

When we walked in we thought the we would be in for a real treat. The ambience and setting is really nice and there was live music. What a disappointment therefore, to receive such poor service. There was a long wait for the drinks and food and when it finally arrived it wasn't hot, I had to send mine back.... More

The ambience of the restaurant was high end, with comfy sofa's, a cosy fireplace, a champagne and cocktail bar area, a dress code sign on the wall and very smartly dressed waiters. I walked in thinking, oh god, were in for a very special treat tonight and instead received a really poor service, our food took an hour to reach... More

I am shocked by some of the reviews made here , especially the one from the person who stayed at terrace club. I loved the answer from the management though. We only ate here for lunch on a couple of occasions during our 7 days stay and we absolutely loved the food. The lady taking our orders seem very professional... More

Hello, Thank you for your review, especially coming from a person of good sense. We were happy to have given recognition to an employee who works with us for eight years, of which we are proud. We also felt shock when reading some false reviews about Belmondo. This is due to two things: unfair competition and badly intentioned people. We... More

We only visited this restaurant once as the waiting time was unbelievable. The food arrived an hour and a half after we ordered it despite several requests as to its whereabouts. Many other diners were also left waiting for ages even with small children who were very hungry. Once it arrived the food was actually delicious however this was not... More

Hello, Thank you for your visit and compliment about our food. In Belmondo we always do our best to satisfy our guests. In August, we are faced with hundreds of guests who visit us without reservation, that difficults our work in this very busy month in the Algarve. Being our freshly prepared food with the freshest market products, sometimes to... More

We went here on our last night before leaving Portugal. Warm welcome and quickly seated. The food was amazing however a bit over priced and one waiter was rather abrupt and rude to use but another member of staff was lovely and made up for his rudeness.
