Description: A series of extraordinary vaulted ceilings draw the eyes upwards the instant you step over Vaults threshold. This ancient former coaching house on the main street of Almancil is an architectural masterpiece, and considered by locals as much tourists as a special restaurant. Hosts David and Katrina make everyone feel at home, while head chef Marco oversees largely Portuguese and Mediterranean menu. On Sunday Vaults puts on a traditional British carvery (with all the trimmings)served for both lunch and dinner.

“fado evening”
Reviewed August 1, 2014

Vaults put on a 'fado' (traditional Portuguese song recital) evening - 30 euros for a three course meal and superb entertainment. Very good ambience, excellent service and the food was of high quality. I am only sorry I found this restaurant at the end of my stay!

“Nothing wrong”
Reviewed July 29, 2014

we found this place after discovering the restaurant we wanted to visit had closed down. It was getting late on a Sunday evening so there weren't many choices. They had a carvery which was ok - can't say that there was anything wrong and was good value. It just wasn't the standard we are used to, but fine for a quick fulfilling meal
