We visit Vilamoura on a regular and this restaurant is always our first and last night venue. The fish and seafood are of the highest quality and the price is cheaper than on the Marina. The staff are friendly and make you feel welcome. Never been disappointed.

We can thoroughly recommend the food here, but you need to be aware that it is frequented by groups of British golfing 'blokes' - which can be off-putting if you're out for a quiet evening meal - and also by scantily-clad local prostitutes who apparently work out of a nearby bar called Cats, and dine here with 'clients'. However, with... More

Can see why this poorly situated restaurant has received good reports and probably will be worth a revisit . Believe that booking is essential as we called on spec on a busy evening with lots of tables pre booked. The hosts were able to find a table in the outside area and others joined. Probably preferable in fact as a... More

We discovered the Fisherman's shack tucked away in a quiet shopping area away from the main by chance 10 or so years ago. Each year we go back and the food, service and wine are always fantastic. Welcomed back by the mad and lovely Carla, we had 2 meals this time. Monkfish Fisherman shack style, with a slight chilli twist,... More

We found this on Trip Advisor and were not disappointed! The food was great, the service was incredible and the atmosphere was perfect. We went as couple but there were singles and groups there, also people from all around the world. The waiter who wore glasses, spoke a variety of languages which was admirable and gave us a huge welcome.... More

If it wasn't for TripAdvisor we would never have found this great little restaurant which is hidden away up a small arcade. The service was great with friendly smiling staff, food was very good as was the sangria 😄 The only problem was that it was quite noisy, as it's a small restaurant and it was full with two big...

We had the most delicious fish in Vilamoura. we were a bit reluctant to dine in there, because it was just us in the restaurant. The staff were very friendly, and we did not leave disappointed. Also, the value for money is much better than other restaurants, because it's not in the port.

A group of 9 friends stayed in Villa Gale Marina and they recommended this restaurant which was excellent with fantastic service and absolutely fantastic Fish Dishes. We actually dined here 3 nights out of 7 as it was so good and friendly
