“Best little bar in Vilamoura”
Reviewed July 2, 2014

We first visited last year soon after it opened.
Very friendly young Portugese owners. Very very reasonably priced drinks.
Proper Guiness properly poured!
Well worth a visit.

“Genuine friendly Service”
Reviewed June 27, 2014

We visited this bar on a few occasions. Prices are very good 3.50 for a pint and a glass of wine and the owner is very friendly and genuinely makes you feel welcome. We watched football and were offered 241 when a goal was scored and had to turn this down a couple of times as we could not keep up! please try to visit this bar as you will receive genuinely friendly service we look forward to visiting again later in the year with our family

“DON'T GO ANYWHERE ELSE”
Reviewed June 17, 2014

Vilamoura has lots of big bars, mostly around the harbour, that charge a fortune for everything they serve, are completely out of touch with the Portuguese people and are mostly just in it for the money! If you want to meet some really lovely, genuine Portuguese people, who just want to ensure that their customers get excellent value for money and can have a great time, then go to Champions Bar instead! Joao and Fabi are just perfect, a lovely young couple, just starting out in the big wide world of running a bar and really deserve to become successful. If only more bars had the same outlook or were run by such genuinely nice people! The cocktails are all hand made with fresh ingredients, half the price of those on the harbour and are the best I have tasted! Whenever I go to Vilamoura this will absolutely be the bar I go to before any others.

“Hidden gem”
Reviewed May 20, 2014

We found this place when we we're walking up through the back streets and resturants and went in for a few drinks. The owner and his family we're having a meal which gave a nice feel about the place. Nothing was to much for them, they we're very attentive and even give us a complementary cocktail which is hard to beat. Well priced drinks and great variety.

“A lovely bar - definitely worth a visit”
Reviewed April 24, 2014

We have been coming to Vilamoura for nine years now but only just found the Champion Bar. Perfect for a pre/post dinner drink, the owners are very friendly and accommodating. The drinks selection is varied and very reasonably priced. I like the décor, with the bar being the main focus with stools the whole way around it. The darts board brought some competitive fun to our evening.

Highly recommend a visit and supporting this great little find.
