Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This has to be one of the happiest restaurants in Vilamoura with some of the very best food. Your host, Caesar, always welcomes you with a smile and usually a few jokes too ... nothing is too much trouble and they seem to genuinely appreciate your business (unlike some of the more formal restaurants in Vilamoura that just want to get you in and get you out!). There are too many great options to recommend one but certainly try the hanging kebabs, steaks, chicken in any sauce and the steak on a stone. Very aware of gluten which also helps with my intolerance! Probably 65-75% of the price of the marina restaurants but 100% of the quality and better service! An amazing complimentary glass of port at the end and lollies for the kids was a nice touch too! Keep up the great work! We'll see you again soon!

We ate here early in our 10 days, when we were on holiday in September and both had seafood dishes which were extremely tasty. The food and wine were reasonably priced for Vilamoura and the restaurant was very busy, with what seemed a good number of returning diners. The staff were all really friendly and the guy on the sweet trolley did his best to tempt us!! We decided we would return on the last night of our holiday, so booked, but due to a change, we had to go back in an book a later time and as we went back in to move our booking, my wife was amazed as the owner called her by name as she entered. Very friendly, good food and drink and good value.

Just absolutely superb. Had not been for 8 years and was delighted to have the chance to visit again. Ceasar and his colleagues did not disappoint. Service was excellent, food was outstanding and the wine was very good as well. Also great value for money on everything. Would strongly recommend, if you want great quality Portugese cooking, wine and service, this is a guaranteed winner ! Thank you very very much !!

Based on written reviews and a recommendation at the long term rental we are staying at, I had very high hopes for this eatery. Unfortunately, I was somewhat disappointed. The good wife and I shared a melon and prosciutto stater. The taste was fine but at 5:50€ I thought two small pieces of prosciutto each was kind of chintzy. Next, I had the beef and shrimp skewer. 3 pieces of beef, one of which was very chewy and 2 shrimp. Again kind of chintzy. My partner had the lamb stew which she enjoyed. For dessert, a chocolate cheese cake and a caramel cake. Both of which looked better than they tasted. BTW, my main came with fried potatoes and a salad on the same plate. I prefer hot and cold items to be on separate plates. The service was excellent, but we won’t be rushing back.

Disappointing meal for my other half. He went to order the leg of lamb and was recommended the shank as a special so ordered that instead. It arrived and was the smallest piece of lamb I’ve seen and it was burnt beyond belief. Honestly there was barely a fork full of edible meat. I had the steak on the hot stone, which was lovely; but then I cooked the entire meal (bar the chips) myself as it was three pieces of raw steak on a plate for me to cook. Sauces accompanying them were nice enough and our starters were lovely (prawns in garlic & fish soup). We did say to the waiter collecting our food that the lamb was burnt, but didn’t seem to bother them and still charged €17 for a barely eaten meal. As we were about to leave, I overheard a lady on a nearby table telling the head waiter that her meal wasn’t very nice, I glanced over and recognised that it was the lamb shank. We spoke to her as we were leaving, and she said she wasn’t one to complain but it was awful. We agreed and then swiftly left as the head waiter was closely watching us with a disapproving look. Such a shame as there are great reviews and lots of meals around us looked fantastic.

My wife & I have been lucky enough to visit Vilamoura once or twice a year for the last 20 years. About 10 years ago we found the "Braganca Mar" & always visit a couple of times each time we are on holiday. The cost is always 1/2 of a meal on the marina but the quality is always 1st class. Ceasar & his wife are just nice friendly people always pleased to see you & make every effort to ensure a good evening. WELL WORTH A VISIT

My wife and I were here at Vilamoura for 5 days and each night sought out a dinner venue that was slightly ‘off the main drag’ to experience more local quality and hospitality. We enjoyed excellent meals each and every night, but tonight, our final night, topped them all. The welcome, the quality of choice and then the quality of the food and wine we enjoyed exceeded all the previous great dinners we’d enjoyed. We’d not chosen here cognisant of price or value but only based on reviews. However we were even more delighted to see the value when we received the bill. Really great value for the quality and amount of food. We are already planning a return trip to Vilamoura and will definitely be dining here again. Massive thanks to all serving and kitchen staff. - When I originally sent this review it showed 5*, 5* then 3* for value?!?! …… I don’t know why and want to make it clear …… 5* FOR EVERYTHING !!!

This place was so good we visited for a second time in our last night. Service was great and the food was even better with everyone (in a party of 9) enjoying their meals, even the kids who ordered from kids menu. Standout dishes were the Monkfish Fillets with Prawns, the Piri Piri, the John Dory and the Sea Bream and Prawns. The cake trolley looked amazing but we were all you full to try it. Restaurant is in the square behind the marina but its a lovely spot and the prices are far cheaper.... Most dishes a good 5€ cheaper than Marina prices.

We have been coming to Portugal for over ten years and have always looked for new places to eat. We have found this place and we will be back! In fact, we ate there first on a Tuesday and returned on the Friday it was that good! Fillet steak is epic, dover sole is amazing, lamb chops cooked to perfection and the staff made us feel welcome. If you are looking for somewhere new and somewhere good to eat......this is the place. It's not all about the restaurants on the marina because you have gems like this just a few steps away from the marina which is a tourist hotspot! Go here, try the food and you won't regret it!

Returned here after 8 years away and wow, it is still amazing. We had fillet steak, starters and pudding with soft drinks and it came to less than €70! Great value and would happily pay more given the quality and service. A must visit!!

This was by far the best restaurant we found in Vilamoura - it gets very busy so we usually booked a night in advance. We ate here four times over 10 nights and all had something different to eat each night, sea bass, salmon, mixed kebab, fillet steak, monkfish kebab - the list was endless. A recommendation is the Portuguese steak! It was very reasonably priced too. The highlight was the dessert trolley that came round each night with a ring of the bell 😆. The staff all worked really hard and were all very friendly.

We’ve been to this great restaurant many times over the years and visit several times per trip when we are in Vilamoura. Great food and service always from Cesar and Carla. Hope everyone at the restaurant stays safe and well and hoping to be back in Vilamoura in the near future for a steak & prawn kebab and a caramel cheesecake (best pud ever!) Louise & David x

My sister and I were recommended this great spot. The staff are so friendly and made excellent recommendations. We had the clams to start which were so delicious. Both our mains were perfectly cooked and made for a tasty first stop on our week here in Faro. The restaurant was full of regulars and I can see why, they make everyone feel right at home here.

I and my partner and my golfing buddies found this little gem way back in 2009 and from the moment we ate their we were hooked. The food and service are second to none along with Carla and (Julius) Ceaser who not only run it to perfection but they get the british humour and can give it as well as take it. Wine list superb along with crisp ice cold beers.

Had a delicious meal here with my family. We had the sardines and paella which were delicious and good value for money. The kids were amazed at the sight of the cake trolley and they did not dissapoint. We would definitely come back if we return to the area.
