“Best kebab ever!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2012

Kebabs aren't usually my thing, but these looked great. Wasn't disappointed they tasted as good as they looked. I had the king prawn and scallop kebab, with the biggest prawns I've seen in a long time. Really succulent and tasty. Service was good too. Would definately visit again.

“Don't bother.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2012 via mobile

Poor food, badly cooked, overseasoned and overpriced. Topped of with poor service. My daughters spag bowl was grey mince in water. Peri peri chicken a local classic was the off cuts overseasoned and dry. Save youself some money and go to the chicken shack at fonte santa and enjoy real good food cooked well.

Dear Mr P_Business_Traveller.

I agree with you in one point, if you want a good chicken Piri-Piri , you should go to the Chicken shack, O Marufo in Quarteira.
The thing is, in our Restaurant, O Marisco we don´t have Chicken Piri-Piri in the Menu and we don't do chicken Piri.Piri even per request.
We just work with the breast of the chicken, which we use it to do a cream and mushroom sauce chicken breast.
I have sent you an email to clarify these review with no success.

Kind Regards,
The Manager.

“Great value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2012

During our week stay in Vilamoura, we ate at O Marisco twice, average bill around €55 for two people for 2 courses including drinks. The menu is varied and provides a good selection to suit most tastes. The food was cooked very well and the service excellent. My favourite dish was a carob and lemon torte.... simply delicious! Definately not one to miss.

“A gem not to miss”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2012

There are so many good restaurants on the Marina in Vilamoura but this one has everything. It is family run so the service is excellent the food is also excellent lots of fresh fish caught overnight locally and the stakes are cooked to your requirements. They are happy to vary the menu if you want something exactly to your liking just ask they are good at many languages too. Best of all are the prices for this quality on the Marina so go early or book in advance. Brilliant.
