“Vivendo restaurant, a must visit. SUPERB culinary experience”
Reviewed October 30, 2011

After having looked for a restaurant that would prepare and serve nice fresh locally sourced food in the Algarve, I found the Vivendo restaurant, part of the Vila Palmeira hotel complex.

Of course, I was a bit skeptical as I would not have chosen a restaurant located in a hotel, but I must admit that this was a great exception.

Great welcome to start with, a choice of a degustation menu (35€) or à la carte (main course average 11€) We tried both, on two separate occasions and both were simply succulent.

Obviously, kitchen staff and his chef were highly trained and skilled, same as the service team.

Pure delight!

RIght portions, not too big, not too small. Sautéed calf liver in a creamy sauce flavored with French spirit, truly excellent! The fig tart, another delight as well. But please let yourself be guided by the lady in charge, she is totally in control and this will run as smooth as silk.

Bravo again to you all at Vila Palmeira! I shall return.
