“Fairly good”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2013

This restaurant is close to Braganca Mar and O Vittoria and is about the same in quality and value. Again a lot depends on what you order and you may or may not be lucky on the night.

“Fantastic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2013

We have been to Vilamoura lots of times but it was the first we have ate here and it certainty will not be the last
We shared the garlic prawns and chorizo for our starters which were so tasty I thought my main can only taste bland after that, but the lamb cutlets where anything but.
My mouth is watering just thinking about them now

“Avoid this restaurant - it is awful”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 18, 2013

Myself and my Husband recently had the misfortune to choose this restaurant.I ordered fillet steak and my husband ordered fish . The steak came floating in a sea of the worst pepper sauce I have ever tasted .It was very tough and tasteless - nothing like a fillet .The fish tasted only of salt and the vegetables were completely bland. I would say it was the worst meal I have ever been served.

“Another great place to eat”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 14, 2013

We've eaten here a few times over the last few years. Very reasonably priced in comparison to the Marina and will eat there again in the future. Staff very friendly

“Lovely Service.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2013 via mobile

Was heading to this place but a nice chap greeted us with a leaflet & showed us in. We received a complimentary drink. Menu was simple & perfect for us all. Steak all good & very good value for money.
Service was very good & the staff all very chatty & nice.
As its off the harbour it is so much better value.
