Have been here a couple times: some very agreeable meals, some very poor ones. Same goes for the service. Can be excellent but should be much more consistent.

It's not my first visit to vimar - it's a favourite of my in-laws when they come to Portugal. I think it's pretty good value for money if you drink light and stick to the set menu. Our choices tonight were kid friendly and none adventurous. Tomato soup and tenderised steak in a mushroom source. Both were tasty and went... More

Friends who live in the area took us to the Vimar. My food, Suckling Pig, was first class, everyone else had the Sole which they raved about. Topping off an excellent evening was their singer who provided really good background songs all at a sensible, unobtrusive level.

Enjoyed the cheapest meal of the week here -39 euro for 2 people with starter, main course and drinks. The singer was very good and on twice a week. A typical Portugese restaurant and good value overall

We ate at Vimar twice during our 10 day holiday and enjoyed swordfish steak, fish soup, prawn cocktail and some of the best chocolate mousse. It's a big restaurant and has some seating outside, as well as a singer on Thursday and Sunday nights. Prices are very reasonable and service is friendly and unhurried. Next time, it will be cataplana!

We ate at the Vimar 3 times, and each time our food was very good. The staff were very helpful and friendly. Their Pulled Pork was delicious, fresh fish - excellent, washed down with some very good wine and complementary Port. We will definitely go back when we return to Carvoeiro

Have been enjoying visiting this restaurant for five years but was ripped off last night and won't be back....our waiter recommended clams to start and then bream so we ordered and didn't ask price as everything on menu is fairly reasonable and bream was advertised at €8.50. When bill arrived clams were €13 and bream €22 each - I queried... More

We had a great time here with the staff However sadly the food was not great and took a long time to come. There was a hair in my food which put me right off. Cannot fault the staff
