Very warm and welcoming staff and lovely location, around a pool. Good menu, served in a very pleasant ambience. A definite 'go again' restaurant for us.
Good to see that this restaurant still warrants all the praise one can give. Friendly staff and nice open setting ,they do not stuff you in with no space to stretch your legs Menu very comprehensive and not overly priced. Ask the boss about his racing pigeons
We spent a week staying at the vila Nova apartments and went to the Vila Nova restaurant on 4 nights as it was so fantastic! The food is outstanding- especially the fresh fish and also the salmon. We have a 2 year old, so we were having dinner at 7 and the service was amazing (I appreciate it might be... More
Having sought this place out due to TA reviews I was expecting some great foodie delighted, while we enjoyed the couvert, my swordfish was of good size and quality, however my partners steak kebab was very chewy and he was not overally impressed. The service was very good and feels another time might make the right choices to really enjoy... More
We've never had a bad meal here. Its a little gem hiding away up the hill past Hibiscus Gardens, Mateoserraeo. Food is excellent and the fresh fish is superb. Friendly staff make this a wonderful dining experience we visit on a regular basis and only wish we had this restaurant back in the UK. Advise to book to avoid disappointment.
Found this hidden gem thanks to tripadvisor, its up near monte carvoeiro but you'd never know it was there without being told. We drove as were staying elsewhere but you could easily walk from carvoeiro for about 15 mins. Agree with others that the poolside location isn't a problem at all, tables dressed beautifully and feels like a nice restaurant.... More
Although the location is a little underwhelming, dont be put off. The food here is so good. Fresh and imaginative without being too complicated. Waiters and staff were helpful and very polite. Portions were big and very good value.
As other travellers have noted, don't be put off by the location of this wonderfull restaurant which is by the pool of the villa complex. We visited on two occasions during our holiday and we were not disappointed at either visit. Booking is essential. The service is very good, with the waiters bring out a display of the fresh fish...
