“Highlight of trip!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2013

We returned with your 3 small children to see the parrot and receive the warm hospitality we felt earlier this year on finding this 'little gem'. Would not come to Vale do Logo without paying A visit to Don Camillos. Staff are exceptionally friendly and the food is superb - you must try the lamb stew or the salmon in cream sauce. Accompanied by lovely vegetables. A must if visiting this area. Could not do enough for us. The owners treated us like old friends. You will not be disappointed!

“Don Camillo, as good as ever.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2013

We always use Don Camillo when we visit the Algarve. The restaurant sits on a hill with lovely views of the countryside and town of Almancil, especially beautiful at night.
The owners, Flora and Jorge are two of the nicest and friendliest people you could wish to meet. There is always a special welcome for customers old and new, with a friendly family run atmosphere.
The food is always very good, beautifully cooked and presented.
Will be back as soon as we can.

Terrible food - but cheap I really wouldnt unless you are on a seriously tight budget! There arent many places to eat cheaply that close to Vale do Lobo - just drive to Almancil

“Friendly Italian restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 16, 2013

Six of us had dinner there last week - to celebrate the birthday of one of our party who eats there regularly. Perhaps because they were known, we were treated specially, but having eaten there in the past, we remember similar friendly and attentive staff and family run atmosphere. The food is very good, the cover items different (garlic pitta bread, bruschetta, instead of the usual Algarve sardine paste etc), and plenty of choice - mainly Italian but not all. The honeyed duck was particularly enjoyed by 3 of our party.
We sat outside on the covered terrace, with views across Almancil by night.
All in all, a very enjoyable evening.
