“Overrated on Trip Adviser”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013 via mobile

I had the lamb stew which was tasteless and very watery. Husband had steak on the stone which was very nice but pricey. He had a dessert which was poor. Give it a miss. It's really not that good

“Doesn't merit it's trip advisor status”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013 via mobile

Having read tp reviews added this to my list if places to eat while visiting vilamoura for the first time. Ate here a couple of nights ago. The food was ok and the service slightly better. Give the deserts a miss as not very good. Ate around 7.30 and the restaurant was almost empty although did become busier before we left. The bill was almost 100 euros for 3 courses plus drinks for 2. I hope there are better places in vilamoura than this.

“Great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2013

This restaurant was great, the staff were friendly helpful explaining the dishes, food portions are very good, if you go for the paella its enough for4 people to have, the portuguese steak is the best I have had, the lamb stew is great too, they allowed us to have half/half for dessert to try, the selection was amazing and best we have had, I would recommend this restaurant to friends and family.

Restaurant is good for family get together or party, would go back to this restaurant.
