Visited this restaurant 5 times during our three week holiday. Very good value for money. Great food every time. The garlic prawns are an absolute must - the best we have ever tasted anywhere in the world. Great service from Liliana who clearly works extremely hard. Kids loved the pool and trampoline which they used on a few occasions whilst... More

The title says it all. Our 5 year old loved it and met lots of kids and we had a lovely meal each time. Staff are stretched but weren't in any rush and the food was good- biggest steak I have ever seen and really tasty. Waiter who supported Benfica was great and really friendly. Portugese desert was so good... More

We went to O Piranta twice in November 2013 and wrote what a great experience it was so was looking forward to returning in July 2014. Unfortunately the experience was not good with very slow service - 30 minutes to take order and nearly an hour before starter arrived. Yes they were quite busy but only two staff serving! Food...

What a great combination.....a pool, trampoline, ice creams and proper food for the adults...a delight to watch the kids swim whilst you eat ...its like someones back garden so you can keep an eye on the kids whilst you eat and drink....for us the perfect combination

O Pirata is the ideal restaurant if you have young children, delivers great value with good food. We went there twice and was a winner on both occasions. The Steak was the size of the plate and the fish fresh and served with no fuss. Would definitely go back with kids, but possibly not a couples venue.

We visited this restaurant and we were not disappointed by the food. As we arrived at the restaurant I was unsure about going in but once I had seen my starter I was delighted. We had the monkfish and prawns for mains. Cooked so well and very tasty! If you are staying in vilamoura I would recommend that you try... More

Last year we ate here 3 times and thoroughly enjoyed it, excellent food and a warm welcome from the manager and his staff. This year we were looking forward to seeing Jose and the staff but to find he was not there and all the staff had changed. The service was very slow, no attention to our table at all,... More

Excellent atmosphere for lounging around the pool, delicious lunch menu and staff friendly and helpful! My friends and myself have spent a whole day of our holiday here. Pool very clean and surroundings immaculate. Food very cheap and excellent value for money. Will return every holiday!

We visited O Pirata while in Vilamoura and it was excellent. Much more relaxing than the restaurants down at the harbour and better value. Looking forward to returning and trying a kebab after someone at another table ordered one while we where there and it looked awesome. Note: from the marina it's about a 15 minute walk to this restaurant... More

Really pleased with this place. Steak was amazing given that every other joint on the marina give you bad value for your money. Service was great and all other dishes were great also . Best places are always away from the marina. Hope these guys keep the standards up.
