Reviewed June 7, 2013

After one hour driving looking for a Nice restaurant area, and looking to go away from the touristic restaurants.

We find the very hidden restaurant on our way to vale da parra.

Was my husband's birthday and we had a delicious well served TBone & rumpsteak which was served on a hot stone (too cook to your own prefernce) Mmmmm.. sizzling!
We also had the largest ever chargrilled king prawn which where amazing, all washed down with a delicious wine.

We definitely recommend and will come back on our next trip.

Diner for 4 + 2 bottles wines for 80 euros. Also The service was very good... An all round very enjoyable experience...

Great price also.

“Take a taxi away from the town centre and the second rate eateries.”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

From the outside it looks like a plane white restuarant building but once inside the decor is of a very high standard having been fitted out with very modern/expensive fixtures and fittings. We were a party of nine and sampled a cross section of the dishes on the menu and all were impressed with quality of the food. I personally had the kobe steak, which was OK but I would not say it was the best steak I've ever had, but my expectation was high after reading previous reviews, and at 35 euros it is expensive and felt although is was very nice but felt i had better steaks in other restaurants in the area. We were impressed with the overall experience - food decor, service and plan to use it again next year as this is a very nice restaurant ( although we did not use the cocktail bar which also looked very nice ).

It's worth the taxi fare from the town centre (about 10/12 euros) as the Solar Das Oliveiras is of far better quality than most of the other restaurants on offer in the town centre.

Marks out of ten : Nine.

“Very good food”
Reviewed December 28, 2012

Don't let the outside stop you. The inside is very warm decor, food is great and to all tastes. Large wine selection and really nice staff. We will come back.

I'm a regularly go to the Algarve and I have to visit Solar das Oliveiras on each trip. I've never had a bad meal here and have sampled pretty much everything they have to offer on. The staff are very professional and are keen to help which any questions that you have on the food or wine. You do pay a little bit more for the food here over other places in the area but it’s still not overly priced. Would I recommend this? Without a doubt!!

“Favourite meal ever? Very close”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

I had the Pork fillet with clams here and loved it so much, i had to go back and have it again. It still lived up to expectations. It was April so pretty quiet but i didn't care. Service was excellent, even a joke request for a longer straw with my cocktail produced a whopping 3 foot effort!
