Just an amazing 'Portuguese restaurant. I have travelled all over the world and I love to eat fish - but Vilamora became my benchmark. Extensive selection and very good wine list too. Professional and helpful service. I was very fortunate as I was staying on business at the Sandton Sun Hotel l where the restaurant was located on the ground... More

This exclusive restaurant has not lost its touch and has not dropped its standard. The service is still of the best and so to the quality and freshness of the food be it a green salad or seafood dish.

It is obvious from the moment you enter that the service levels are high and that the restaurant makes great efforts to train their staff. The warm welcome and the slightly private dining area that we had made for a relaxed and enjoyable evening. And the food....absolutely delicious and beautifully presented. I started with Springbok carpaccio which was a large... More

We hosted my friend's 50th birthday party. They travelled from Ghana for the occassion. very embarrasing that his wife found a massive metal staple in her bread. The staff and management were very luke warm about it...blaming the supplier.

My first experience was on my birthday, courtesy of my husband. It was extremely special, received a birthday card , and although my husband made the booking well in advance, the staff and manager gave me birthday wishes when I arrived. The prawns platter was divine and well worth the money spent, my husband had equally good things to say... More

I had the fish platter which consisted of Kinglip, baby lobster and prawns, preceded by mussels in a peri peri sauce. Colleagues who were also at the restaurant had seafood platters or ostrich. We were a party of 11 people from various countries and without exception all thought the food to be excellent. Well prepared and well presented. The wine... More

Vilamoura continues to deliver special meals. Seafood is their speciality, but they do have an extensive menu. They have a really great wine list and serve some of South Africa's best wines. Well worth a visit when you want to ensure you need can be guaranteed a great meal. They have private rooms for those celebrations or business dinners

We had dinner at Vilamoura after a customer recommended it as THE place for Seafood in Joburg. The setting is not really my cup of tea - but my boss loved it. It is very oldfashioned and dark. But the service is really outstanding. Our waitresse- I think it was Patricia - was just lovely. The food was great -... More
