Good food, lovely setting, possibly a little over priced. However had to wait 50 minutes from finish of starter to main course. Crazy. Our evening was ruined because of this. There are so many others options in this area. We will never go back.

We visited Florian earlier this month during a family vacation in Quinto do Lago. The service was impeccable and they made us feel very welcome! Our children are 11, 9 and 5 but we felt very comfortable there amongst the mix of romantic couples, family gatherings and other various types of groups.

We sat outside in the lovely garden with it's floorlamps and many candles and it was beautiful. The food was sublime. The chef came around to see how everyone was doing and overall it was just a lovely lovely evening'

In fact, we enjoyed ourselves so much that we returned for a second evening there despite only having 7 nights in Portugal :)

I would highly recommend this restaurant. My husband and I travel quite extensively and have been to some fantastic restaurants. Florian is definitely one that we would recommend!

Title sums the place up, been there probably 4 or 5 times now, always excellent cuisine in a restaurant tucked away in a residential area so its a very tranquil environment!

Not the cheapest place to eat though!

Florian is located in Quinta do Lago/Almancil, an area where fine dining restaurants are not in short supply. Having tried many of them throughout the years I've become familiar with culinary disappointment: the food is usually presumptuous, conservative and expensive. Not at Florian. Make no mistake: this is a fine dining restaurant, only one that is worth your money - the cuisine is inventive, and pays good attention to detail; the portions are rather generous; the wine list is balanced and with some very interesting choices; the ambiance is pleasant and relaxed (lovely garden); service is efficient, even if a bit sloppy sometimes. Strongly recommended.

We've been celebrating my husbands 50th birthday at Florian with some friends. We were placed outside in the wonderfull garden. Outstanding kitchen and superb wines made it an unforgetable evening. We'd like to thank Piet, Karin and their wonderfull staff. We'll be back in september! Can't wait
