Visited Cesar’s amazing restaurant on a friends strong recommendation. Well, what can we say? All these reviews can’t be wrong! The food, service & ambience can’t be beaten. We immediately booked for a return visit, again, unbeatable. Cesar was certainly a great character, full of...banter & very attentive to our every need. If you only visit one restaurant in Vilamoura, make sure it’s this one.More

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!More

Have been coming here for many years and due to Covid have not been since Nov 2019. Back for the bank holiday weekend and this was our first dinner spot. Great to see all the friendly faces (being masks of course) and still great food....Thank you Cesar and staff; beautiful female waitress & friendly male waiter who makes sure you get to see all the desserts on offer. Lovely steak, fish, skewers and great choice!More

Amazing restaurant, a few streets back from the marina but easily competes if not outclasses the majority of the food served on the marina. This restaurant was recommended to us in 2012 by a local and we always make sure we have at least one...meal here. Meat and fish based menu, everything is perfectly cooked and extremely tasty. Always happy to accommodate and they also covered our gluten free dietary requirements. You must try this place when visiting Vilamoura. Great for kids and very reasonably priced.More

Stopped for an excellent dinner at Braganca Mar in a square behind the Vilamoura Marina. It wasn't touristy, but many of the customers were inevitably visitors to Poertugal - this during the first fortnight of the return of the British to Portugal. Atmosphere was friendly...and fun, more than half the tables were taken and everyone was in a positive mood. Our two main dishes were excellent: tuna cooked in a tomato sauce, and an interesting Portuguese lamb casserole. Service was good, the house wine was reasonable and the bill was surprisingly modest. Would return again ourselves and would happily recommend it to others.More

We have visited this area for over 10 years and tried out many places to eat with varying levels of success. On our very first visit to Vilamoura we stumbled across this place and were amazed at the quality of the food and, despite 10...years of diligently eating our way through our holidays, have never bettered it, The food is good quality, fresh ingredients simply and well prepared and the staff are brilliant, friendly and funMore

We always visit Braganca Mar when on a Vilamoura trip, and it always delivers. Great food and staff, fresh fish a speciality, so much so that I now struggle to order anything other than Dover Soul as it is just so good! Portuguese Steaks and...Surf and Turf equally good, never had a bad meal here in 10+ years! If you haven't been, make sure you visit Braganca Mar, in the square behind the Marina!More

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.More

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