“Great Family Restaurant in the Praca”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2012

If you are staying in Vale Do Lobo, you will inevitably go to the Praca, there's a great atmosphere there and it's full of families enjoying themselves.

As it's 'on resort' it's a bit of a captive market in the Praca eating out is relatively expensive compared to going out in Almancil. However Amore is one of the less expensive restaurants in the Praca, it's essentially an Italian menu and I would say is good value for money. The food portion sizes are excellent and the quality of the food is good. We often skipped a starter simply because a starter and a main was just too much food.

The restaurant is family friendly with a good children's menu and the staff are really good, efficient and friendly. It's a very busy restaurant but the staff were always quick and the food delivered promptly, there is also no rush to leave your table, in fact I often had to ask for the bill a couple of times.

The restaurant is in the best location to take in the atmosphere in the Praca. If you want romantic and beach front (and expensive) you'll want to eat in one of the other restaurants there.

Tip - make sure you book a table if you want to eat between 7.30 and 9.30pm in the high season. You can book same day.

“Average Meal”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2012

Great restaurant for people watching in the praca but meal tastless and average. However the bill was not average. Ten euros just for the couvert ! Service quite slow. Read other reviews on here of other people who go to VDL every year and think that this is the best restaurant around..........You obviously do not ever leave the praca then, there are loads of restaurants around the Golden Triangle and Amore is far from one of the best. Wont be going back there to eat again.

“Wonderful place for pizza and pasta in Praca”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2012

Great pizzas and pasta, friendly and attentive service with easy going atmosphere, altogether a good experience and not too pricey. Only downside was the music in Praca which was children's entertainment while we were there, not quite what we were after.

“Always good!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2012

I go to VDL every year, Amore is the best restaurant around for sure!
Not only is it great for families its also great for coupes with a wonderful bar with views of the beach.
The food is good, the atmosphere is great.
The only negative is sometimes the restaurant staff are slow, and take a while, and one year they messed up my order (but i liked what they brought out, so they were forgiven).
All round a very nice restaurant with a great location, food at atmosphere.

“Great restaurant in the heart of the Praca”

Great restaurant in the heart of the praca. Recommend going on a Monday when "The Busines" play live in the square. Gets busy very quickly so worth popping in to make a booking.
