Was excited to try this place because of the ratings and reviews. However, as a chef I can say I was not impressed. I ordered the clams, really nice sauce however it came with some sand. Furthermore, ordered monk fish as main course and that was alright, nothing special. I think we were just really unlucky. The lamb across from... More

We arrived at the Fisherman's Shack and were treated like long last friends. The food and service are excellent and definitely out best meal while in Vilamoura. Give it a try and you will not be disappointed. We will return!

Visited a couple of years ago. Food still very good although must say that we felt a little rushed, which was disappointing. Probably wouldn't go again purely because there are so many restaurants in Villamoura to try.

Hello and thank you for this review. If the restaurant as many people at the same time we can t stop. We must go on and still we have the feeling that people are waiting too much. If you order starters and grilled fish, for example, the more the fish waites in the kitchen the worst it will be. We... More

Just home from another break in Vilamoura. The Fisherman's Shack is a great restaurant which we always visit at least twice on our holidays. The service and food is wonderful and fresh and the staff are very friendly - particularly Leonel who is always up for a bit of banter. We'll be back again in June and looking forward to... More

Restaurant off the main street but well worth finding.If you are looking for a nice view this is not for you.If you are looking for very good quality and at a reasonable price with very good service then this is for you We had fish on both our visits which was excellent but there are also meat options

We visited as a family. Initially service was good but as it got busy they couldn't care about the earlier customers. If you go to this restaurant, allow yourself at least 1 hour after you have finished your meal to receive the bill and another 30 mins for them to take the card for payment. Disappointed.

I am shure that it didn t took so long to take care of Your bill. When a lot of people come at the door and want to seat and order drinks and food they also deserve a chance to be served. Thank you. Leonel More

My friend and I chose this fish restaurant for a meal, certainly not by what it looks like from the outside, but someone had mentioned it to us. It isn't visible from the street. The resort caters for golfers and there was a party of such people in the restaurant when we got there, as well as other people seated... More
