We visited this restaurant last week. When we arrived we were 'greeted' by the manager? (I think) she didn't really smile and reminded me of a school head mistress. Were we offered bruschetta to start with and felt awkward saying no so agreed to this- of course we were changed which I find quite naughty seen as we didn't ask... More

very nice food and service with gorgeous view overlooking the sea. The food was lovely, a little more expensive than othe local restaurants but worth it for a holiday treat.

Belmondo, after all these years, continues to be my favorite restaurant in Portugal to eat italian food. The pasta's and the pizza's are delicious with the true italian flavour! The wine list has a lot of different wines with a lot of exclusive wines. The belmondo's pannacota is way better than a lot of pannacottas that I ate in italy!!... More

Food was good but service was a little hostile. Also the setting was slightly odd with a pool and sunloungers right next to where you eat. Thankfully not many people still there when we arrived. Walkable from Vila Vita. Not overly inspiring....

terrible place me and my boyfriend came in one night for a few cocktails and were made to feel unwanted and out of place. we got seated around the pool area near the exit and the staff ignored us to the point we left the restaurant. They think its a posh place when really they should be a 2 star... More

Belmondo brings me good memories since I visited the 1st time in 2013 The food is delicious and the magic of the place is something you never forget. We were very well served by a very professional and friendly staff who always made ​​us feel comfortable and welcome. It seems that each passing year this restaurant is better. Highly recommended!

Loved this place so much we went twice in the space of a weeks holiday. Beautiful bruschetta to start, the 'American Hot' pizza was easily one of the best I've ever tasted, and the panna cotta was by a mile the best desert I've had in Portugal... amazing. Waiter we got both times was extremely friendly, lovely place to sit... More

We were staying nearby and saw the numerous signboards around Armacao de Pera for Belmondo Italian Restaurant- we booked a table to make sure we could get a good table for the evening entertainment . When we arrived the welcome was unsure as to whether we had booked and suitable to enter - we were smartly turned out - a... More

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
