Food ok. Ambiance good. We had a pleasant lunch but not exciting in any way. Deserts were better than the main courses

If you go nowhere else, visit this restaurant. Fantastic food, great ambience. Wonderful couple now running the place. Best place within miles on the Algarve. Please please visit, you will not be disappointed

This was our first visit to this restaurant and will certainly return next time we visit this area. We were very impressed with the food choices and even more impressed with the vegetables as they don't seem to be offered in most of the restaurants. Great food, great service - what more can you ask for.

We have not eaten at the Lemon Tree for four years and in this time it has changed hands. Naturally we were wondering if it would live up to our expectations. We need not have worried we ate there last night and the food and service was excellent. Large portions and beautifully cooked. I can especially recommend the calves liver,... More

We have visited O Limeiro several times a year over the last 10 or so years and have always been pleased with the food and service. Noting that the restaurant changed hands earlier this year, we decided to see if things were as good as before. In fact, they were even better. There was a much wider choice of food... More

Return visit, it appears the owners have changed since we last visited in 2015. Lovely waitress who showed us to our table was very attentive throughout. I had the lamb chops which were a bit tough for my liking but were ok. Portions were plentiful and we struggled to eat everything. Outside seating area has been improved and looked a... More

We came here for an evening meal based on the reviews we had seen. The starters were excellent ( mushrooms in garlic and cream sauce and salmon fish cakes). We then had lamb chops and chicken in cream and garlic sauce. The portions were generous and accompanied by sauté potatoes and deep fried courgettes as well as a mix of... More

Just a 2 mile drive outside the resort of Vale do Lobo gives you in my opinion a better selection of restaurants and priced meals. None more so than The Lemon Tree, the food and service is fantastic and cooked fresh to order. The service is excellent, they really couldn't do anymore for us and looked after our two children...

Plastic chairs and plastic table cloth set the standard here. Restaurant lacked atmosphere and although waitress worked hard and was very pleasant the food was average/good One of our party enjoyed his vegetable soup but the lamb shank was tough and uninspired. Overpriced for what we got.

Thank you for taking the time to review the Lemon Tree. Both myself and the waitress asked you on the night if everything was ok with your meal you said yes , how can we put anything right if you say it is ok when it isn't? As for the plastic chairs they are garden furniture and was the furniture... More
