“Good honest food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2014

We ate here while on a short break in February, we were approached with a menu and the offer of a free drink while walking around the marina area. The food was good honest fare and I had a lovely steak with an equally lovely bottle of red. To be honest when in another country I prefer to eat what the locals eat but February in Vilamoura made for limited eating options within walking distance of our hotel. However if you fancy some quality "English" food you won't go far wrong here - with friendly unobtrusive service to match.

“Great food and experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2014

As a group of golfers we visit Vilamoura each year and always eat at least once if not more at Rui's Steakhouse.

The food is great and portions a very good size. The staff always make us welcome and look after our every need.

The Restaurant is off the main harbour but worth the short walk.

Would highly recommend and we will return again.

“Nice one! ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2014

We came across this when Jay stopped us and I told him we are on a low budget of €20 for 2 following a really expensive meal from the night before. We got first free drinks. My daughter ordered lasagne and I ordered piri piri chicken. Was very good and atmosphere was nice.

“Fantastic Food and Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2014

We came across this restaurant one afternoon and took away a menu to study. We liked what we saw and went a couple of evenings later. We were not disappointed in any respect. The restaurant was well laid out, pleasant and comfortable.The service was fantastic and nothing was too much trouble. The menu choice was excellent, well cooked and extremely well presented. 2 of us had the steak & kidney pie, individual pies of generously proportions made on the premises. They were very very good and can honestly say the best we have ever had. We found this place late into our holiday and did not have the opportunity to return, something we shall definitely do on a return visit to Vilamoura.
