“gourmet”
Reviewed April 3, 2013

A very good place to eat, fabulous John dorey, locals eat here too, not the cheapest but worth it, been going since it opened. Very good service and best to book, it's always busy, the outside cafe area great for coffee after a morning in the shops.

“Excellent, try the salt cod casserole, epic !”
Reviewed April 2, 2013

Hard to fault this place, great location on the Marina, weather was raining outside so the deck not working but we were seated (without reservation but would recommend you make one) quickly at a window table.
Had the gravadlax starter, excellent but wish i hadn't as there was so much and i struggled with my main course ! I had the salted cod casserole, really really good. My wife had the grilled sea-bass which was cooked perfectly and came with saute potatoes.
Service was excellent, in the 4 days we were in Vilamoura it was by far the best restaurant we ate at. Would definitely come back !

“Best restaurant on the marina!!”
Reviewed March 25, 2013

This restaurant has a great atmosphere. The location on the marina with the possibility to sit on the deck is perfect. My family love this restaurant as it offers a selection of food to suit everyone. The staff always makes you feel important and are very professional

“Not as good these days....”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

For may years this restaurant as been number 1 of my choice in the Marina,for lunch or an Evening meal.
The service as always been good and also the food.

I have found in the last few years from 2010 a decline in service and quality of food...

This seems to ne the norm for the Marina in recent times, dont rest on the good times Akvavit you used to be the best.

Now i would say 2012 average at best....

Improve your staff and quality of food, as your prices are creeping up and up???
