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.

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.More

Having seen reviews for this place and witnessed how busy it was decided to book. Table not ready but offered to go and have a quick drink next door and advised 20 minutes or so later our table ready. Waited ages to order drinks and...food - our starter arriving 1.45 hours after our reservation. Food distinctly average and my husbands monkfish with prawns being dry and unpleasant. Tables quite cramped together but would have been ok with that if food had lived up to expectations. Very disappointed and wouldn’t return or recommend.More

Table booked for 20.30, starters arrived at 22.15 . My main course of monkfish tail fillets with prawns came smothered in a sticky coconut sauce, attempting to disguise the dry texture and lack of flavour. A long a wait for disappointment.

Booked same day as we ate, arrived and cover delivered swiftly by friendly waiter. Good wine list and that too was delivered quickly. Ordered the special of the day Portuguese Tuna and a mixed kebab. Both plentiful and excellent! Very lively and fun buzz about...the place and where it counts, the food, faultless. Thanks very much indeed and we will definitely be back. Cheers!More

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.More

Very good start to holiday. Good service and food. A great ‘desert trolley’. Only disappointment was that the sardines were filleted. Will return

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.More

We enjoyed the monkfish rice, great food and value for money. The host was great and delivered top banter and the relaxed nature was amazing. Within minutes it was half full, showing how popular it is

Visited this as a recommendation and booked in advance. The food was very good but felt the service was very very rushed, the next course out as soon as the last one cleared away. Although we appreciate they were busy we felt like if we...had stayed any longer we might have been manhandled off the table.More

No unfortunately! Best bet is just walking in the night before your meal- as they are not open for lunch either
