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.

Hidden gem . Absolutely the best steak ever, cooked to perfection. The rump and fillet to die for, served with rice chips n black beans. The chicken pate to start with was beautiful. Huge portions , lovely attentive staff . Would definitely recommend 100%

We ate here twice during our holiday and both times we were really impressed. I really highly recommend the Picanha steak, it’s cooked on a skewer and carved periodically onto your plate, simply delicious! The accompanying dishes of black beans, salad, fries, bread basket are...huge. The restaurant is popular with Portuguese and does get busy but the friendliness and efficiency of all the staff is second to none. Best to make a reservation ( especially if you want to go at the weekend). If your looking for sea views or similar you won’t get it here as this restaurant is a couple of streets back from the sea but they do have a pleasant courtyard that they make the most of. This restaurant is definitely not a “tourist trap” and the food and service more than make up for its location.More

This is how restaurants should be. Service great. Food great. Going to return, yes. I can understand the draw of restaurants on the marina in Vilamoura, the setting is what you pay your money for. But, at Quarteira you just find this type of eatery....It is worth the walk.More

We were excited to visit after we had been given high recommendations from my friends. I ordered the Rizzo ? The meat on skewers . My husband had the steak and peppercorn sauce . Within an hour of being home he was throwing up all...night and extreme diarrhoea. He spent all day yesterday in bed . The vomiting has stopped. We never ate in the day as we wanted to save ourselves for this feast ! The service was awful we arrived at 7pm and never got our meal till nearly 10 pm . They were attentively serving the regulars Portuguese but we were like the last resort . I certainly didn’t get all the meat that was being given to the other diners . Poor service poor hygiene and contaminated foodMore

Had the most amazing experience at this restaurant. We had actually found the restaurant through trip advisor searches for steakhouses in Vilamoura. If you’re staying in Vilamoura it is about a five euro taxi from the marina to this complete gem. We both had the...fillet steak (medium rare) with peppercorn sauce and rice, chips and salad as our sides. The portion sizes are extremely generous and the steaks themselves were to die for. Service was tremendous, all staff members were so friendly and the chef came out to ensure we enjoyed our meal! We will most certainly be back on our next visit to Portugal.More

If you love meat and good service you have to visit. They went out of the way to make sure my grandchild was looked after food-wise (she can be a bit picky) and let her have a small steak with loads of chips, rice, and...broccoli (oh, and slices of lemon) as she did not like what was on the children's menu. The food for the adults was amazing - we want their Pir-Pir sauce recipe! If we had bellies big enough we could have eaten all night long but my god the quality of the food and flavour was great and we soon filled up. If you are in town you have to try it if you love meat! They were also great after we had left and were very kind and understanding and checked if my granddaughter had left her favorite thing (which we found on walking rewalking the return walk back to where we were staying) even though they were very busy! Great people and food!More

We adored this family run restaurant! Paula, Marco and Rui were wonderful and gave us a warm welcome each time we visited on our holiday. We’d recommend trying the beef spit or the Rodizio if you enjoy eating meat they were absolutely delicious together with...the house red. Can’t wait to return it was that enjoyable!

OMG GUYS! This is the must come restaurant! specially if you like meat! I have had good stakes and meat. I even tired most expensive stakes at Gaucho restaurants. But this one is second to none. So tasty and sooooooooo soooooo sooo goooooood. Only for...€19 you can try unlimited meats and stakes. Everything is so gooooood and tasty. It definitely deserves a Michelin star for the food quality and taste. Nice and friendly staff. It’s whole experience! Guys if you are in the area this is a must visit place. Vine is also so good. Well got a bit drunk here but Jeeezzzz everything’s sooooooo amazingly tastyyy.More

We really wanted to try this place as couldn’t get in last year. They were full again! (it’s very popular) Spoke to staff to say we’d tried to book through trip advisor but they don’t get the messages so call them if you want to...book. It was husband’s birthday so they managed to squeeze us in. My god we weren’t disappointed😀 The meat was so tender and flavoursome, 17 different types are brought around, they slice a piece and you take it with a small pair of tongs you are given. You have a dish of chips , rice and black beans with small dish of dried tapioca you mix it all together on your plate. Outstanding staff always checking on you and that you’re happy with food. For 2 meals bottle of wine & large beer 51 euros and we were full to the brim!More

Went on a recommendation. The waitress seemed a bit disinterested when we arrived. People were standing around for sometime before being seated. The food we ordered was nice but wouldn’t rush back.
