“Impressive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

This is a delightful restaurant and bar, which is beautifully designed and decorated and gives a real lift to the area around it in Vilamoura marina. There is a great menu and the staff are welcoming and attentive. This restaurant was highly recommended by an expat and we can see why!

Was recommended to this place a local chap. It was great advice. So good to get super fresh food that was not only hot but served on lovely hot plates.

“gourmet”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

A very good place to eat, fabulous John dorey, locals eat here too, not the cheapest but worth it, been going since it opened. Very good service and best to book, it's always busy, the outside cafe area great for coffee after a morning in the shops.

“Excellent, try the salt cod casserole, epic !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013

Hard to fault this place, great location on the Marina, weather was raining outside so the deck not working but we were seated (without reservation but would recommend you make one) quickly at a window table.
Had the gravadlax starter, excellent but wish i hadn't as there was so much and i struggled with my main course ! I had the salted cod casserole, really really good. My wife had the grilled sea-bass which was cooked perfectly and came with saute potatoes.
Service was excellent, in the 4 days we were in Vilamoura it was by far the best restaurant we ate at. Would definitely come back !

“Best restaurant on the marina!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

This restaurant has a great atmosphere. The location on the marina with the possibility to sit on the deck is perfect. My family love this restaurant as it offers a selection of food to suit everyone. The staff always makes you feel important and are very professional
