“Fabulous Meal!!!! Came back for a second night...”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

We visited this restaurant whilst on holiday with my family.

Great service - very warm and friendly.

Family style served veggies was a great touch - and very delish.

Beautiful courtyard.

What would I recommend from the menu - the Black Pork was to die for - Mum and I shared Sangria - which we were give then option of white or red wine - we went for white and it was excellent.

We actually chose to come back the next night becuase we enjoyed the first nights meals so much - the second night did not dissapoint!!!

Would thoroughly recomend this restaurant!

“Nice food but expensive, and no credit cards either !”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

Our family group dined at The Lemon Tree during a recent holiday at Vilar do Golf and whilst the food and service were both fine, it was an expensive evening compared to most other restaurants in that area.
The other point which spoilt the evening was that when we arrived we asked if they accepted credit cards and they said that they did, however when we came to pay the bill they said that the phone line was down and that it happens all the time (not something we experience anywhere else in Portugal during our two week stay). It then proved embarrassing when each member of the group had to delve deeply into pockets, wallets and purses to try and find enough cash to pay the bill.
If you are running a business surely you make sure you always have a reliable phone line.
Unfortunately we would not recommend this restaurant to others given that the food is not exceptional, the prices are high and you cannot rely on being able to pay by credit card.

“Very good”
Reviewed July 24, 2013

A small but lovely garden shaded by a lemon tree; on the down side next to the small car park. The service was very attentive and friendly, the food delicious, much better than some of the highly advertised places. The atmosphere relaxed fun and chatty. Would definitely visit again.

“Great find, we will be back!”
Reviewed July 19, 2013 via mobile

Fantastic setting in a lovely courtyard garden. The food is delicious, staff, service and atmosphere top notch. Black pork in Madeira sauce a real highlight of the menu and the goats cheese salad and the traditional Portuguese black pudding and the mango and coconut chicken, in fact EVERYTHING exceeded expectations. We cannot wait to return.

“A gem”
Reviewed July 19, 2013

Was recommended to us for a last meal before coming home- wish we'd found it sooner. Lots of choice, very friendly service and excellent value for money- and we got to sit under the lemon tree
