I don't know where Tony H went but this was one of the best eating experiences I have ever had. My Rib eye was cooked to perfection, as were the meals of all my companions. The staff were brilliant, the service superb and the atmosphere amazing. We ate here 3 time in 9 days and have it definitely on our... More

We found this place by mistake as our hotel did not tell us about this gem. Returned four times in ten days. Being disappointed with the pool where we were staying, we were delighted to be able to spend the day relaxing by the pool at O Pirata sipping cocktails and enjoying an amazing lunch for good value in beautiful...

Great food, really well prepared and cooked. I would recommend this to anyone staying in vilamoura particularly if you're staying at the Hilton as it is literally round the corner and the Hilton food is under par. We've eaten here several times and every time the food and service has been superb. Lovely and welcoming staff, very clean place. Very... More

Very friendly waitress but needed help looking after food and drink service for 6 tables on her own - had to remind her about drinks we had asked for on 2 separate occasions. Food was nice, nice setting and reasonably priced, just a shame that the service let it down. Dreadful Carte d'Or dessert menu rears its head again in... More

Though this years trip was my first to see George and Monica at the O'Pirata, it was just as good as I remembered when they were based at the Mar... More

We have been here for late kunch. Even it is inside the residential area, we had no problem to find it. The staff is very nice and we ate there one of the best cataplanas. Do not miss it.

Unusual location, situated in the middle of a residential area but great food at a great price with a lovely relaxed atmosphere. We don't usually go back to the same restaurant but one lunch and two dinners later and each time has been very tasty food and well priced. The Tuna Al Pirata and bbq'd sea bass are both highly...
