Visited on a Saturday evening Stylish decor with Helpful and Attentive staff, but excellent food at a reasonable, though possibly slightly more than normal price, excellent choice of Wine, with a varied Menu. Highly Recommended.

Chef/owner is both witty and creative. Staff is friendly and efficient. Had not been back to Portugal for ten years and found the experience at Vila Velha just as wonderful as we remember. Start with the homemade bread and olive oil. Try the curried prawns.

Great food, great service, comfortable but classy decor - what's not to like? We had a couple of the prawn dishes, plus local salads and veggies - all were perfectly prepared and delicious. The servings were very large too. Not the cheapest of the restaurants...More
