My boyfriend and I visited here for a tea whilst in the area. It is a lovely place to visit with a little shop selling local produce. We bought a bottle of red from Sir Cliff Richard's vineyard which was delicious. I had a lavender tea whilst admiring the amazing views which was lovely too. I cannot comment on what... More

Well worth a visit if you are in the area. Went to check out the honey and the chutney plus have a milk shake and enjoy the view. Understand that it is a hotel as well but we didn't go there for that. The ship also has some gifts and various wines in sale.

This is the second time we've been to this restaurant (no idea why they don't have a Tripadvisor page for the restaurant!) and both times have been excellent. The setting is very beutiful, very different to 200m up the road with the more touristy restaurants. The food is an excellent take of tapas...most you recognise but a few are quite... More

Family and friends cycled from Vilamoura to Quinta do Mel for a well deserved lunch, dessert and coffee. The food was delicious, my favourite was the lemon cheesecake. We also tried some Meade, which we would all recommend. We bought a few jars of the Lavender Blossom Honey, also delicious. This is a lovely place away from the hustle and... More

This little oasis of calm is just a short distance from Falesia nestled amid a few fields of grazing goats and kitchen garden plots. The sign for agri tourism says it all. Home grown local produce made to finger licking perfection! We have been there twice for lunch and it just gets better. The tapas selection is great. We particularly... More

The coffeshop is well worth the visit. We were taken here on a guided walk from our hotel and enjoyed it so much we paid a return visit at our own pace. To say I had one of the best sandwiches ever sounds as if I should get out more but the simple pork sarni was excellent. Just rustic bread,... More

A high end boutique hotel which has a very nice coffee shop attached open to non residents. Cakes are to be recommended but beware the scones they leave a bit to be desired...... But well worth a visit on a sleepy afternoon

Off the beaten track a great place to stay and try great local delicacies! If you happen to be by the nearby amazing beaches go for lunch at Quinta do Mel and enjoy a well deserved break from the sun.

Booked via Eliza Was Here and this is another great location. The appartment was very clean and the staff and owner really did a great effort to make you feel at home. The pool is very nice (no chlorine) . The restaurant has great tapas and plates. Nice breakfast. Some other tidbits: fast internet speed, good shower.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Quinta do Mel is small peace of countryside near Algarve's best beaches. With 10 rooms and 1 apartment, results from the recuperation of an old farmhouse respecting architecture and materials. Most of the products we serve are from our own production. Besides vegetables we produce strawberries and aromatic plants. At the Quinta there's also a Tea room / Restaurant, open to general public, where is possible to taste several traditional products and mediterranean recipes. At only 1,5 Km from Praia da Falésia, Quinta do Mel still preserves the countryside quietness and spirit. Close to everything, away from the crowd ! ... more   less
