“Give it a miss”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013

Great location to catch you if you are walking from the Lake Resort but really you can give this a miss and not feel like you are loosing out. Boring menu and not great but passable food.

“Avoid”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

Horrible false staff. They just want to churn people in & out quickly like a McDonalds. It looks nice and their location ensures enough tourists will always stop there and most will be gone home in a few days so they do not worry about customer satisfaction. They would never survive in a real city where repeat custom would be important. Food was very average for the marina but I felt like I had intruded on their space and they were doing me a favor by letting me eat there. My wife had cod in oil and it nearly burned her tongue off. Bread we did not ask for but ate (cos we were hungry) and paid handsomely for was stale and hard. Stay away.

“The perfect meal in an incredible setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013

I have visited this restaurant many times and I highly recommend to anyone who is looking for an unforgettable foodservice experience.
The service staff is incredibly friendly and efficient giving out a cool vibe and friendly atmosphere which goes perfectly together with the "cozy" and tasteful decoration of the restaurant. If you prefer, ask for a table outside on the deck and enjoy the vibrant atmosphere of the marina, while sipping on some delicious cocktails and enjoying trendy music. In any case, you will not be disappointed by the food. Everything is cooked to perfection! I have tried many dishes from News Café but I can point out the Chateaubriand and the Steaks as my favorites. The meat is simply incredibly tender and the accompaniments won't let you down. You will also find that News Café offers good value for money! I can recommend this restaurant for any occasion but specially for hanging out with your friends or having a romantic night out!

“Unforgettable Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

Incredible location, food and service! This restaurant has it all! We came hear 4 times and each one proved to be exceptional. The meat in particular was sensational and above it all the chateuabriand is a must try.

The restaurant caters for all taste buds with a hugely diversitile menu; serving everything from breakfast, snacks, lunch through to dinner.

If you visit Vilamoura this is the place to go!

“Accommodating for any occasion”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

The high quality in freshly prepared foods, extremely inviting staff and unforgettable scenery combine for the prefect dining experience! This restaurant caters for all your needs and requirements, providing a wide variety of dishes to suit any guests desires. Children's menus are available if visiting with the family, while the freshly cut flower arrangements and candle lit tables provide it with a touch of romance.

Open throughout the entire day starting with breakfast at 9:00. Serving a combination of traditional and alternative snacks, outside of peek hours, with a more composed lunch menu and extremely elaborate dinner selection. The house specialty, Chateaubriand, is definitely one to recommend.
