Great food every time day and evening... signature Dish Scabbard (swordfish) with fried bananas and delicious sweet sauce w/almonds. If 65+ ask for your Seniors card 20%off costs 10€.

My wife and I ate hat this place for the first time recently whilst staying locally. We found the food to be very freshly prepared to order and served by very friendly, attentive staff. This is not a huge establishment and lies back off the main promenade but is well worth visiting either for full meals or just snacks. The... More

Loved it in March 2015, a bit disappointed in May 2016, redemption now in November. Had a lovely light lunch salads for both of us and had their English breakfast yesterday. Very good on both occasions

We ate here on our first restaurant, children under 12 eat free before 8.30 which is a great idea, the food is nice and simple, we ate outside but it's lovely inside as well and very clean toilets.

Can't speak highly enough of this place! Staff are top class and child friendly to an almost ridiculous degree. I had as good a steak as I have ever experienced. The rest of my family were equally impressed. We'll be back hopefully!

During our short stay in our favourite resort in the Algarve we dined every night in Café Restaurante Girassol; as we have done previous holidays. Again we were not disappointed. The staff are very friendly and there was a wide menu choice. My wife and I were pleased with our choices; in particularly the rib-eye steak which was just mouth-watering... More

My wife and I are here enjoying the garlic bread with cheese followed by piri piri chicken and a crepe for dessert. The portion sizes were generous and all three courses very tasty. The chicken wasn't over spicy and they provided extra sauce to make the dish hotter as desired. Wine was great value - we will be back.

Very relaxed environment, reasonably priced and children eat for free before 8.30! What more could you ask for.

My partner and I discovered this little Gem last June 2016 and re-visited for a week just last week with a friend. Almost afraid to tell about this place, it is so relaxing, quiet, food superb. The food surpasses all the restaurants in the Marina area of Vilamoura and Quateria. The staff are so professional and beautiful people. Wonderful and... More
