Really enjoyed this place which is a bit more 'restauranty' than many other places in Sagres. The service was really friendly from start to finish and considering the amount we ate, I don't think the bill was high. Think it came to about 180 euros for 4 people and we had three courses and wine.

Steaks were fantastic and my chicken with peanut sauce and pineapple was one of my dishes of the holiday. The chocolate brownie with cherry was also great. Atmosphere was very buzzy with every table taken.

Stayed in Sagres for 7 days and had dinner at Vila Velha 4 times. The food and atmosphere were great. Recommend shrimp piri piri and shrimp curry. Visited during September so not as many tourists around, but in season definitely make a reservation. Also, the staff is very welcoming. Enjoyed the entire experience. Also good wine selection. My fiancé loved Everything she had and she had mostly non seafood dishes. Chorizo appetizer was only weak dish. Other than that order away.

We ate at this restaurant upon reading these reviews and recommendations by the hotel. Overall the experience and food were average and I think it's overpriced when you can find equally nice seafood in cheaper places around town.

We spent 2 weeks at the nearby Martinhal resort in July. This restaurant was a real find. Better food and at cheaper prices than at Martinhal, we kept coming back. The simplicity of the cooking and freshness of the ingredients were a real joy. Please try the piri piri prawns! Topped off with wonderfully friendly and attentive service, this is a seriously good restaurant. We will be back next summer.
