“Flatters to Deceive”
Reviewed February 11, 2013

location somewhat remote from main restaurant area. Luch quality varies and cannot cook scallops - overdone- a crime for a seaside location

“Average”
Reviewed October 27, 2012

Fine if you want to eat near the marina with a view but the food very average. No fresh basil in the caprice salad.
Staff pleasant though

“quality”
Reviewed October 27, 2012

A lovely restaurant over looking the marina, staff were very friendly and happy. The food was wonderful from their wide choice of breakfasts to their evening meals. The restaurant was very clean and the decor was neat. The tables were set to a high standard. Loved this place.

“What's in a name”
Reviewed October 26, 2012

One of the better restaurants in Vilamoura with a chic ambience and great to watch the comings and goings of the marina in its corner location. Just as good for lunch as it is a dinner. Personally we went as a group of sixteen celebrating a birthday. Ideal as a party venue or simply a romantic meal for two. Seek this restaurant out and do not be put of by the name - a cafe it is not.

Watch out for the cover charge. Return them if you don't want them - simple.

“Pinky at The News Cafe”
Reviewed October 17, 2012

Booked with no idea what to expect, but we had no worries, service, food, atmosphere 1st class.
Big thanks to the resident singer Stevie who adds that cabaret touch and did a 4hr routine that made the place rock (not in a loud raucus way) but in a tasteful proffessional manner.

I was with a party of 9 golfers who were out to entertain and we did just that getting almost everyone up for a dance and a good time. The place was buzzing and was defo the place to be.

We ate there on 3 nights and every night was just a blast.

The owners and staff were great, big shout out to Jenny top waitress.

I could go on and on and may post some pictures later.

Not sure if the News cafe read these reviews but if they do then I am sure they will no who has written this, if not then it is from Pinky and Mcvicar !!!!

You can not fault this place best steak I have ever had
