“Good evening meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

Situated on a hill with scenic views overlooking Vilamoura and the coast, this characterful restaurant is well worth checking out. Good choices on the menu, with food beautifully presented "in the style of Van Gogh". Also has a playground so is suitable for families with small children.

“Sunday Lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

Visited Van Gogh restaurant in Boliqueime for Sunday lunch. Excellent value for money and good service with a smile. The food was plentiful and wholesome, a choice of roast beef, chicken, salmon or gammon served with fresh vegetables and yorkshire pudding and stuffing. All for 7.95 euros per person. Try it, you will not be disappointed.

“Warm Cosy Family Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013

Summary and Recommendation:
After dining at van Gogh Restaurant I would definitely recommend this restaurant as a great family restaurant. The prices are very reasonable and affordable so you can actually afford to take the entire family and kids out to eat there. Overall, is a great restaurant choice for any family! Fantastic views great service and found the restaurant to be very warm and cosy even in February 2013. We found the food to be very fresh and the home made bread was divine.
There chicken dishes are very very good indeed, very tender. This restaurant isnt for people who like fast food rubbish, its defintely lovely fine dining.

“Awful experience”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

Restaurant was very cold. Had to keep my coat on. The bread was stale. The chicken was off. The Thai chicken had chunks of carrots in it and was served with naan bread!!! The chicken breast with honey and mustard dressing was just awful. We drank the bottle of wine and left. The waitress said the chicken was very tender because they marinate it in white wine. Yeah, whatever! Definitely will not go back.
