“Romantic Culinary Delight”
Reviewed January 11, 2011

Dinner at the Villas restaurant is a truly fantastic culinary experience. The chefs always try to create dishes that not only are layered with flavor, but are also plated beautifully! Their wine and cocktail selections are extensive. The atmosphere is romantic and the service is so unobtrusive that you feel like you are the only customers. We have stayed at the Villas several times since their beginning and we are always amazed how each time is better than the last. It's wonderful how they always reinvent themselves to keep the menus exciting. We have tried many other restaurants during our stays, but never enjoyed eating anywhere else as much. We highly recommend the Villas not only for dinner, but breakfast and lunch as well. You won't be sorry!!

“A place that delivers on all expectations”
Reviewed December 20, 2010

We have stayed at the Villas of Trancoso three times. During each outstanding stay, we have ventured off the property to experience the cuisine at a few of the local area restaurants. Although we have had very good meals at these places, none compare to the quality, atmosphere, and service of the Villas Restaurant. Breakfast offers a combination of fresh fruits, pastries, meats and cheeses that would satisfy most appetites, but, if you want more, the chefs will create any fresh egg dish or omelet that you could imagine. Our lunches were also outstanding. The best part of our noon meals was to have them delivered to the beach. What a way to enjoy a tasty meal, with the sounds and sights of the ocean as your table mate! The dinners were the best we have ever experienced. Nothing like a perfectly prepared fresh lobster as a first meal of our stay! Every meal was wonderful, but it isn’t just your taste buds that will be satisfied, but you will be visually stimulated as well. The attention to detail in the presentation and display of food was so much fun. I have as many pictures of the meals as I do of the beaches!! The staff is professional and always offers a smile with your meal. It is a great place with a perfect romantic setting.

We had a nice surprise in this restaurant. We were guests at their lodge and went to have dinner there without great expectations. The food is excelent, the staff is very efficient, there is happiness in the air.

“Truly...an adventure in Brazilian cuisine.”
Reviewed December 16, 2010

It is my pleasure to recommend the charming restaurant located at the Villas of Trancoso, Brazil. I find that part of the adventure of a holiday is to experience the tastes of the local cuisine. The Bahian food will appeal to all tastes, flavorful but not overwhelming. We were delighted to experience their signature event, the Churrasco which is a Brazilian barbeque. It is my preference, but the pleasant staff is more than gracious to cater to the yen for a burger or a BLT chicken sandwich. Or perhaps a lobster would be your choice. To dine under the stars at night at poolside, lit by candles with the pounding surf as a background stirs many a romantic heart. Perhaps that is why I always find a way for a return visit.
