When we arrived at this restaurant the first impression was good. We were seated outside in the garden which was lovely. Unfortunately, we were seated next to a table where the owner was entertaining his dinner guests, loud mouthed and swearing. When we asked if we could be moved to a quieter table, we were shown to a table for... More

Restaurant Florian is run by a very gracious Dutch woman named Karen who welcomes you when you arrive at a lovely interior space and beautiful courtyard where the tables are widely spaced for privacy. The service is also gracious, and attentive without being obsequious. We all tried the special Florian cocktail with white port and loved it. Amuse bouches were... More

Florian is a must visit whenever we go to the Algarve. It is the best dining available, with delicious, sophisticated food and great service, led by the lovely Karen. Highly recommended.

This was our second visit, and it is now a staple for our annual trip to the Algarve. Excellent food and service and a lovely setting. The staff are attentive and help make the whole experience a pleasant one.

A thoroughly enjoyable experience dining at Restaurant Florian, with a professional but relaxed approach to service. Fillet steaks in particular were excellent.

Very good restaurant top class food . Not the cheapest place to eat for food but the wine isn't over the top in price . Another place that I find it hard to believe isn't rated higher on this site .

This restaurant is a real gem. We visited last year for the first time and it was one of the first places we booked on our return to Quinta do Lago. Karin the host is lovely and makes you feel welcome from the minute you walk in to when you leave. The waiting staff are professional, attentive and very friendly... More

We hadn't been to Florian's for a few months as we haven't been in Portugal since the spring. However the food, wine and service was as good as ever. We had the seafood ravioli from the specials and then the pork and the lamb, followed by apple tartlet. We sat in the wonderful garden. All in all a great evening.
