Ate here on our first night in Vilamoura.

The place has a nice feel about it. The staff were very attentive and welcoming.

The food was good. We opted for fish and steaks in our party and there were no complaints.

The wine (house) was acceptable and tasty.

Prices were reasonable but wouldn't say cheap. However, it was a good dining experience!

Ate here one evening after seeing favourable reviews on trip advisor and weren't disappointed. The place was full, but didn't feel cramped and the staff were pleasant and knowledgable.
Both myself and my cousin had steaks which were cooked to our liking and came with great accompaniments. The creme brûlée dessert was also worth a try :-)

This restaurant is opposite a topless dancing bar, just behind the Marina - you could argue whether or not that constitutes a good view - you cannot see the Marina itself though.
The restaurant itself is a bundle of neon lights, glass surfaces and television screens - it could easily be a London city centre restaurant. The service is average - polite but not exceptional.
Where this place really excels is the food - we had the following:
1) Goats Cheese in filo pastry/Bream with prawns/Cheesecake
2) Tuna Carpaccio/Monkfish Kebab/Cheesecake
The mains were lovely - served with sticky rice, and generous, well presented portions. The monkfish was really tasty, and the Goats Cheese was tremendous.
This isnt a traditionalPortugese home cooking style menu - it has very much a contemporary feel, with emphasis on presentation as much as taste. The location could be better (there are plenty of restaurants on the marina with better views), but the food makes up for it. Decent value as well - around 17 Euros for a main makes it affordable and good value for what you get.
Recommended if you are in Vilamoura..
