We have used this restaurant over the past three years and it never seems to fail, freshly cooked food made to order, daily specials that change regularly, super friendly staff and if you sit in the right place then you get a sea view

We tried the fish and stake, house wine and desserts. Everything was high quality. We visited them 3 times. Our waiter Daniella was very nice and we will definitely go there again.

How good is the food?? The scabbard with flambeed banana was the BEST tasting fish I have EVER had. My better half had a SLAB of salmon which looked VERY tasty. This place is a must try.

Though the food is not gourmet it is fresh and good. Fish is the best bet here. Staff are wonderful. Had two birthday parties here and they put on a great show if you tell them in advance.The bang for the buck is the best in this town.

We were staying in Vilamoura and were recommended this restaurant by friends. It was well worth the short trip to Quarteira. The restaurant seems to be popular with locals - usually a good sign.

Girassol is located just behind the beach, so if you can't find it straight away the just ask in a local shop and they will show you. We had a nice lunch here.
