Description: Lakhsmi Restaurant is serving Indian Cuisine to the food lover since 2008. It is located in the heart of the Marina of Vilamoura. Our food is sourced from top quality seasonal ingredients, featuring a high percentage of local and organic products. We offer a mix of new and signature dishes. We consider Lakhsmi to be a truly "Indian" restaurant honouring many different cooking traditions and interpreting them with our unique creative vision. The restaurant offers a sophisticated fine dining experience with effortlessly charming staff, discrete service and tantalising food that few can compete with. That is the combination to ensure guests come back for more.

Just back from Vilamora and ate at this restaurant 2 nights. The food was fantastic, kept warm throughout. The staff were very friendly however on the 2nd night they were very busy and I could see staff telling others to clean tables faster so this was a bit off putting as if we were being rushed. I ordered a dish not on the menu and they made it for me. Any dish can be set to any level you like mild,medium or spicy just how you like it.The only problem I had with this restaurant is the cost of kids meals are very expensive at €8.50, however it is an extremely large portion and there's no way a child would finish it. I will certainly be returning on my next trip to Vilamoura, almost go back just for this restaurant!

We wanted to have an indian meal and chose Lakshmi as it had a good view over the marina. The food was good and the service was as well. However the only down side came when the bill arrived. It said we were table 8 and that we had a bottle wine (we only had beer). so the waiter apologised and re-did our bill and we became table 7 then. The bill was correct this time after having 17 euros taken off. So we paid cash. however when they brought the change back it was 4 euro light. We did not bother to question again we just left and dod not leave a tip. Apart from that it was a lovely meal and cost 69 euro.

We were really disappointed with this restaurant. It was the most expensive and poorest quality meal that we ate in our time in Portugal. The meet and greet gentleman on the Marina confidently informed us that the restaurant was in the World's top 5 Indian restaurants. Sadly it didn't make Vilamoura's top 5 Indian restaurants. What really angered was the hidden costs on the bill and the appalling quality for the high cost children's meals. There is much better quality around.

This was the only restaurant in the 2 weeks in vilamoura that we wouldn't go back to. We should have left before we ordered or food but didn't. The staff were rude and unfriendly we were out early so we were the only table at first so they ave no reason for bad service. They just wanted us in eat quick and pay. Which is what we did you would have nothing to stay around for.
The food was bland the rice was cold not good value either popadoms were €1 each and dips were extra on top of that
There are other Indians around try them if you really want Indian food this one will disappoint you
The high chair was dirty the straps were disgusting so we should have known from the start but at least we can let others know (the one positive was the guy on the road to get you in to the restaurant but it ends there too)

We were met on the street by a lovely man and given the most friendliest of welcomes however that's where it ends.

Poppadoms came with an array of different sauces and pickle dishes, (all sneaky hidden extras on your bill) very quickly followed by the starters.. My wife noticed the staff kept watching us to see if we were finished our starter which had only arrived. Literally as soon as we finished our starter our main course was placed in front of us.....all very, very rushed.

To cap everything of we met a family in the restaurant that were staying in the same hotel as us and were having a quick chat about the evening... One of the most rudest and downright ignorant waiters I ever met told the family to go back to their table and finish their meal and then immediately turned to me and asked me for the money.

We ate here earlier in the evening and there was lots of free seats / tables so no excuse for the rude and rushed atmosphere..

There are much better and friendlier Indian restaurant in Vilamoura, Stay well clear of this one..
