“Stunning !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

Got home today after a week away. Ate here 6 times, which speaks volumes. Meat & fish both excellent, and I love and know my food. The quality of the raw fillet steak that I had the pleasure of cooking on a hot stone was sublime and looked like rose veal and tasted heavenly.The hosts are genuine people and nothing is too much if you wish to slightly deviate from the menu. Visit early on during your stay and save yourself the bother of being disappointed. Cannot recommend highly enough.

“Fabulous Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

Myself and my girlfriend ate here twice on our stay in Vilamoura. We had steaks on both occasions as they were cooked to our liking as well as being great value. The cost of 2 steaks, a half bottle of wine, 2 beers, one sweet and 2 covers was 51 euro. The service was excellent and the area was buzzing. I would recommend that you visit this restaurant for their hospitality as well as their range of cuisine. They also serve excellent fish dishes with the opportunity to choose your fish you wished to be cooked from the fish on display.

“Gem of a restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

We visited Braganca Mar twice during our week stay in Vilamoura. The service and quality of food are second to none. We would recommend using this restaurant and the ones around the area rather than the overpriced marina restaurants. The grilled sardines for starters are delicious. They do a speciality board which is great value for money. Also try the green wine. Thankyou again to Ceasar and Daniel. You are great hosts and we will visit you again when we return to Vilamoura.

“Wow what a hidden gem!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013 via mobile

Usually not keen on fish we were aprehensive to try any traditional Portuguese restaurants, ones with a lot of fish on the menu. Don't be discouraged, the menu is so diverse and has a option for everyone! The food was well worth the price, cheaper than the marina still, but absolutely delicious, the way the food was presented, the taste, everything was impeccable. Also the portion size was great. The service, well, it was just out of this world, all the staff made you feel right at home and were extremely polite. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone, you cannot miss out on this.

“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
