The service was good the menu was large but the food was nothing more than run of the mill and nothing more than what one gets in many restaurants in the area. Fair value though.

We went here for dinner and absolutely loved it. The staff were so very friendly and courteous. The food was absolutely delicious and very reasonably priced. It's just off the marina and run by staff that own an Indian restaurant right beside it. We would definitely recommend this place and we returned two nights later. Great place !!!

Lovely place to eat - adults and children's menu. Plenty of choice, much better food and value than some on the marina.

Four of us spent a week in Vilamoura for the new year. We ate dinner here twice, along with the great food the friendliness of the staff is worth mentioning as both combine to ensure you have a great meal. The four of us had various meals each one was very enjoyable.

This is the first time we've eaten here since the new owners took over, so didn't know what to expect. However, we were not disappointed with a great range of food which was very reasonably priced, especially given the central Vilamoura location. Two of the group are vegetarian and there was an unusually high number of non-meat choices which was... More

This place is run by the same family who run the Indian restaurant next door. The food is mainly Italian with a few fish dishes thrown in. All the food we had was very tasty and the service was efficient. We had a mushroom pizza and a calzone, both of which were very nice. Recommended.
