Everything about this restaurant was wonderful.
Simple and beautiful, also great value for money.
Fresh organic tastes to the food, it just melted in your mouth.
The ambiance to this restaurant made it for me.
Three persons -3 courses each -including bread, water and 2 bottles of wine
81 euro. Cannot wait to return.

“The best food in Vilamoura!”
Reviewed June 7, 2014

The food was outstanding and was the best we had all week. The staff were very friendly and the chef took time to explain the menu to us which all sounded lovely. It was difficult to pick our main courses. It was nice to visit somewhere away from the marina which served traditional food. Well worth a visit!

“Definitely worth a visit!”
Reviewed June 6, 2014

We have visited Vilamoura a few times and tried many great restaurants around the marina and in the Old Village. This visit we wanted to try somewhere different and had seen this restaurant listed number one on Tripadvisor for the Vilamoura area so thought we would give it a go. We were staying in the Old Village and the restaurant is about 7 or 8 minutes from there via taxi. It cost us 8 euros. We had initially thought about walking, but this is definitely best accessed by taxi. The restaurant is located on the outskirts of Vilamoura and has a lovely rural setting, on a small country road surrounded by orange trees. On arrival we were warmly greeted by the patron and shown to our table. Straight away we were brought a covert which consisted of fresh bread, nachos and dips with carrot and celery sticks which was different from many of the restaurants and very tasty. From reading other reviews we knew that we wouldn't have to pick our starters or desserts as these are chosen for you by the restaurant! We were severed a beautiful tomato and goats cheese dish with pompadours and that was followed by some garlic bread with olives.
A waiter then brought us a menu and went through everything on it explaining what exactly each dish was and what it came with. It was clear that all the staff had a passion about food and were all friendly and very attentive. We picked a seafood cataplana with rice, and a wild boar stew. Both meals were delicious. The portion sizes were very generous and we both had more than enough - but a nice touch was that the waiter offered us seconds if we wanted!
We had a beautiful evening and the friendly staff, setting and beautiful food made it a meal to remember. Price wise, it was very reasonable and a good bit cheaper than the restaurants at the marina. We would definitely recommend it and will be back again on our next visit.

“Rustic and throgouhly enjoyable”
Reviewed June 6, 2014

Go with an open mind. The menu is fairly limited and there are only two kinds of wine - red and white! - but the food was delicious and we found it it be a very enjoyable experience. Well worth the trip!
