A warm and friendly family run restaurant that serves the better food in the town. Steaks are good quality and always cooked correct to order. Always one of the first restaurants we visit on our frequent visits to Vilamoura.

We ate at this restaurant three times during our holiday and every meal was first class. The atmosphere was so friendly and the service great. The quality of the food both was very good.
The fish was filleted at the table with expertise and was beautiful. The fillet steak was also very good. The wine that was recommended both white and red was excellent and reasonably priced and certainly showed the owner of the restaurant knew what he was talking about. They certainly deserve to be the success that they are.

We found this gem , due to the fact that on the Sunday we visited, the restaurant we intended to visit on the same Plaza was closed. We were initially attracted to it by seeing the refrigerated display stand outside, full of so many different varieties of fresh fish. On entering the establishment we were warmly greeted by Ceasar, who during the course of the evening made our visit both memorable and enjoyable. We chose a bottle of the house "Rose" and found it to be most agreeable. For our main course we both chose one of that nights specials ie "Grilled Sole" with vegetables and were asked whether we wanted it on or off the bone, we both requested "off". When the meals came the fish was taken off the bone at another table in front of us, mine being done by Maria and my wife's by Ceasar ( not without a bit of a laugh caused by him presenting her with the bones instead of the fish) Our desserts were both fantastic and rounded off by the almost obligatory glass of Port (on the house). All in all we had a great night and were very lucky, as it transpired, that our original choice was closed. Maria and Ceasar really make this place buzz and I would thoroughly recommend it to anyone, you'll be spoiled for choice.i We certainly be returning.

We ate there last night (04th May) and would without a doubt say it was the best meal we had during our week in Vilamoura,
It is located about a 5 min walk from the hustle and bustle of the Marina but offers exceptional value for Money,
The staff are friendly without being pushy and they really made of our two year old toddler, we both had fillet steaks ( my own being done on hot stone ) which were absolutely wonderful,,( they have a large choice of daily specials which all are very reasonable priced)

Tucked away behind the marina, this restaurant is definitely worth a visit and we eat here at least once on each trip. It and its neighbours offer much better value for money than those on the marina front.

We usually select from the specials board or have the fresh fish which is good value with larger portions than many restaurants. The staff are friendly and always make a point of speaking to our daughter as well as us. They will also do small portions of the main menu if you ask (as well as the standard children's menu fare). The dessert trolley looks great but I am usually too full to try anything!
