25th Wedding anniversary year is a big one; a special venue was required and I remembered Willies from a few years back. Although pretty quiet; early in the season and the week; it had lost none of its charm. The ambience, the staff and the food were as expected and top notch. We had one concession to the evening, my... More

I celebrated my birthday on 4th April in Willies. This was a deliberate choice of restaurant for a special birthday as we have dined there many times over the years and always found it superb. The restaurant was very quiet with only another couple and their son in the restaurant. This didn't affect the enjoyment of the evening as all... More

We were staying at the Hilton and decided to try this restaurant on our last night. We did not realise that it had a Michelin star until we got there! It is, however a charming local restaurant in an intimate setting. The food was not cheap but it was top class and the service staff could not have been more... More

We visited on a cold wet February evening after it had just reopened from the Winter break. A warm welcome awaited us, we asked if they could do us a tasting menu and as they were quiet they obliged. Had 9 courses which were delicious notably the signature dish of sea food ravioli and the foie gras dish

We stayed in Hilton Vilamoura for a week and tried several Michelin star restaurants around. Willies is by far the best. It is not cheap but overall value for money is great, given combination of the perfect food and service.

Loved this restaurant so much. We ate in the garden and the atmosphere was fantastic. A lovely relaxing atmosphere. The food was out of this world. It was up there with the Lady Helen in Mount Juliet as one of my best meals. The ravioli stood out as the best. Every mouthful I ate that night never disappointed. The wine... More

We have dined at Willie's several times and know quite an amount of other superb restaurants at the Algarve. A simple rating - this is definitely one of the best restaurants around. The seafood ravioli (and sauce) are out of this world. Sure, it's not cheap but what would you expect from a 1* Michelin restaurant. It is not an... More
