We were in Vilamoura for 5 days and ate at Cais i on 3 evenings That should tell you something! The fillet steak was cooked to perfection (mine medium to well done and my wife's medium). I tried one of the burgers one evening and they live up to the hype, they are the best in the Marina area! Hand... More

We have very high standards and expectations and Cais I certainly fulfilled them. We were not offered free wine or port but everything we ate was lovely. Burgers are the highlight of the menu but there were other options such as steaks mixed grill and pasta. We thought being on the marina it would be very expensive. Not much more... More

Been looking forward to trying here with two burger enthusiastic children. Found the menu underwhelming if you weren't into burgers. Starters a little boring and stodgy. Ordered the classic burger which was tasty and huge, couldn't even come close to finishing. Wedges that came along side were cooked to perfection and tasty also. Staff polite and helpful. Overall it was... More

We always pop into Cais I when we visit Portugal. We only came for a meal once this time and unfortunately it is getting very quiet there but I cannot recommend the food and service enough. The staff are very friendly and helpful. I recommend the mixed grill it is absolutely delicious.

We were just about to walk in when we saw a member of staff pick up ornament type things from the floor and put them on dining tables. The same member of staff was smoking inside the restaurant. We walked away to find somewhere more hygienic.

Good food and service, ordered mixed grill which was huge, chicken, pork, steak and different sausages. Burger was homemade. Apple pie was delicous, finished off with a small thimble of port

I ordered fillet steak medium rare but they served a well done sirloin. When I pointed this out to the waiter the food was removed but was returned by the kitchen a few moments later with the chef apparently insisting that I was wrong and that the sirloin in front of me was in fact a piece of fillet.
