Description: Cafe Del Arte is a bit diferente then other bars & restaurants in the area, The setting is special as your dinning or relaxing under mature vine trees with relaxing non comercial music, our menu varies time to time and is not large but all we prepare is home made and we use a lot fresh herbs and spieces, we always can make some vegetarian dishes as well, Our tapas can be a nice starter or just a snack with your glass of wine, We sell small handicrafts, art pieces and paintings from local artist, and orginize various theme nights throughout the summer period, For now every Wendsday we have a BBQ with live entertainment. We are open during the day for lunch or afternoon drinks as well and for dinner reservations is highly recomended.

Great to see something nice set up in this location. Great to have somewhere local. The ambience in the place is lovely, and appeared to be many repeat customers on the night we were there. We didn't need to make a booking. The food was tasty and very well presented. Service could have been a bit more structured and perhaps quicker, but maybe that added to the atmosphere.
We were so impressed we thought we'd go for lunch the next day. Menu said it was open from 10am each day. But when we got there around 2.30, there were only drinks available. We went for coffee but no pastries or anything which was disappointing.

Visited here after finding it on Tripadvisor and wasn't disappointed. Had been disappointed with the restaurants around the Marina and the high prices charged for average food. This, however, is the type of restaurant we like to eat in. Superb atmosphere with outdoor tables, friendly staff and lovely food. Not a huge choice on the menu but everything on it was delicious. By the time we made a return visit we had tried out almost all of the main courses! All washed down by lovely wine (Marques de Borba), reasonably priced. Just one word of caution - they only accept cash! Don't know if this is only a temporary thing but you could get caught out!

Found this behind our hotel and were blown away by the level of service and food offered. Restaurant was buzzing and full when we arrived and we were immediately offered a table to be made up for us outside. The staff couldn't have been more friendly, attentive or efficient. It made the night feel very special, topped off by the best food we'd had in Vilamoura by a mile. Try this place, you will not be disappointed.

Found this restaurant after searching Trip-advisor and another great find not far from our apartment. Tucked away in residential area in a beautiful setting, quiet corner. The atmosphere was lovely, candles throughout and great music selection playing in the background. We hadn't booked however staff were very helpful and prepared a table for us when one became vacant. We had a delicious meal, Small choice on the menu however I have no doubt all the food would be excellent. My father and husband had burger ( promise not just any burger), I had tapas for one which was lovely. We had wine, three courses, good service from two lovely staff - must have the strawberry panacotta! All in all a lovely evening, great food and very reasonably priced. Restaurant just behind Wilies Restaurant. We will return. Nick, Bob and Mojo.
