As said in a previous review this is indeed a "hidden gem". We stumbled upon it when we were trying to find our accommodations and Jose & Zilda were so kind and helpful that we just had to go back and ended up enjoying two evening meals with them. The food was wonderful, the desserts superb and the service and atmosphere unbeatable! From the first moment we arrived we were treated as though we had been friends for years. Thank you so much for the experience and we are still talking about you & your wonderful restaurant after our return home to Canada! We definitely would recommend it as the best place to eat in the Vilamoura area that we experienced! Best wishes and all the best in the future!

We cannot believe there are 25 better restaurants in Vilamoura than Oliveira Dourada, it's no. 1 for us. Beautiful tasty food, with unique little touches, and served by Jose and Zilda, the proprietors. They are so attentive and eager for you to enjoy your experience with them. And, when you get the bill, you have to look twice, because it is so reasonable. We have recommended Oliviera Dourada to numerous friends, and they too, keep going back. Jose and Zilda, if you're reading this, we look forward to seeing in early January 2013, can't wait. Hope you have a great Christmas and New Year.

What a delightful experience..a semi rural setting, Owners who personally serve you some of the best Portugueses wines we have ever tasted + Signature dishes from around the World.
You have to go there to appreciate fully the joy of returning to a Home from Home feeling created by Zilda & José.
Cost for all this....modest prices that are a surprise & a pleasure to pay.
This visit from Ireland was with a group of Golfers/ Wine Tourists in Nov 2012. When i introduce them to this Restaurant they were so thrilled with the experience..i had to Book them in 4 Nights out of 8 we spent in Albufeira.
You can Book your meals in advance from a Selection on their Menu..or you can just arrive and chose from that Days Menu.
Our dishes varied from fragrant Prawn Curries, Wold Boar, Lamb Tangine( Morocco), Black Pig...
The wines...the BEST.
Looking forward to returning again asap.
Thanks so much Zilda & José...you deserve all the success pssible for creating an experience for Food & Wine lovers.

This restaurant was a pleasant and very welcome surprise. The food was superb and the hosts very pleasant. Because it was so good we spent a long evening there . We were based in Praia Da Oura so you need a car to get there but it is well worth the visit. The final surprise was that it didn't cost the earth. A must!
