My wife and I are staying in the complex and dined here last night, based on the Tripadvisor reviews.

We had an excellent meal with correct silver service from the waiting staff, but, we found the meal over priced for what it was and our Chateaubriand steak, which was ordered as medium rare was barely pink in the middle.

This is unforgivable for this level of restaurant, thus it does not rate highly for me.

When compared with Restaurant do Fort or Arazem do Sal I would place them well ahead.

Dear Client,

Thank you for the short but rewarding feedback about your experience at Med restaurant.

The meat lovers night is in fact a must. The meat we use is local, matured during 14 days and only after that goes to your plate with the flavors on top after this procedures to make the meat tender and even more tasty.

It will be a pleasure to have you again in our place.

Warm regards,

Muito Obrigado,

We were staying in the hotel complex and came here for an evening meal.
The food and service were excellent, however sitting outside there was little atmosphere made worse by a BBQ night by the nearby pool with African style drumming and shouting which may have been better if we could have seen what was happening rather than just hearing.
The starter was excellent however I found the fish that I had a too large and not complimented with enough sauce or sides, though it was excellently cooked.

Enjoyable evening.

We were staying at the Porto Bay resort, so were keen to give this restaurant a try. The food was consistently good and the manager made a great effort to produce an excellent Portuguese red wine - he clearly knows his wines well and has a passion for them. He also has the sense to seat the families with young children in the outside area.
