“Must be best value in Vilamoura”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

Ate here 4 times in 7 days last week, the grilled lamb chops are to die for, the beef medaleons superb and the T-bone was a RARE delight. Ceasar and Daniel are nearing perfection as hosts.
Just wish we had had time to have tried more of the delightful menu choice. Will have to wait until next march !!!.

“Fantastic food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013

This is one of our favourites. We've been many times. Food if really good and lots of it. Very busy at times in evening but they never rush you or keep you waiting. Very popular. Fish is delicious and the fillet steak medallions with mushrooms was divine, melt-in-the-mouth! Prices are so reasonable compared to marina. We will be back!

“If you want quality go to the Marina”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013

Went here on recommendation and what I read here. Probably one of the worst meals I have had in all my times in Vilamoura. To start I had the Algarvian fish soup which was ordinary and my wife had the mushrooms and bacon which were tasteless and uninspiring.

For main I had the Portugese fillet steak which never had a chance in the terracotta dish which had been heated up to nuclear fushion temperature. My wife had the sea bass and asparagus. She reckons the fish was frozen and the asparagus, being white asparagus, was out of a pickle jar.

If this is the standard, and from what I saw being served, it looked like it was, (someone on an adjacent table sent their soup back to be reheated) avoid the place if you enjoy good quality food because you wont get it here and there are many quality restaurants only 50mts walk away.

“Excellent Fish”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013

Had two fish plates and both were excellent; service is friendly and quality price the best in Villamoura, away from the bay crowds.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013

A real local restaurant ,good food ,service and value. Ceseare ,the owner is a great host and you can guarantee a good night out . The chateaubriand was fab and one of our favourites ,tucked behind the marina this is a real gem.
Deserts always look inviting though a new trolley wouldn't go amiss !
