After looking around this place looked good from the outside and met by a very pretty and bucksom young lady my wife and I chose here. There the good experience ended. Our waiter needed a bath, the menus whilst once impressive were tattered and showed an impressive choice. Starter to be fair was good but prior to that the olives... More

While waiting to check into our hotel when we first arrived to Vilamoura, we stopped here to grab a coffee and a bite to eat. I ordered a smoked ham roll, which in the picture looked like Parma ham and salad. My roll came as just your average sliced packet ham in a baguette, no salad. We decided to give... More

We had a very disappointing meal which was hardly improved by the complete lack of interest showed when we voiced our concerns. There were two stand out problems. Food and service. Our first choice of main course was off the menu but they did not tell us for fifteen minutes. We were recommended the seafood cataplana (42 euros for two)... More

2 meals wrong, 1 bad meal replaced with another bad meal. Never had a steak well done one one side and cold the other before. Only thing which was cooked well was pasta.

After half a day of walking around Vilamoura marina, we decided to have a light lunch here. Whilst what we ordered was basic, it was actually cheap and cheerful for this restaurant. The view was brilliant, overlooking the harbour. Service could be better, the waiter could at least pretend to like what he was doing, but that didn't bother us... More

We stopped in for morning coffee, hot chocolate & cake. The traditional cakes are beautiful & definitely worth trying.

We had a lovely lunch at this restaurant and decided to go there for dinner. However, I ordered medium rare Fillet Steak and my husband medium T Bone and both were so bad. Mine was like a lump of rubber and my husband needed something stronger that a fork and knife to cut through his. The experience also cost us... More

Surprised at our visit. Our main course took nearly an hour - the excuse was "too many customers"! When the main course did arrive a key ingredient was missing (as it had been for a meal delivered to the next table).

Put us off Vilamoura, a very cynical establishment. Dont believe the photos on the menu. My partner ordered Chicken Caesar salad and when it arrived it looked like rice pudding, it was 50% rich sticky sickly sauce. I had a tuna salad which had very little tuna, just shredded soggy lettuce. Really poor food, ignorant service, they could not care... More

Staff is friendly but could do with some 'client' attendance training . Pricey but good seafood . There is a nice varanda with view of the marina . We had the grilled prawns for starters and "Arroz de Marisco' (seafood rice) and waited more than an hour for that rice . We were not told that the rice would take... More
