The whole evening was a delight. Great food, exquisitely presented and cooked to perfection. The staff could not have been more courteous and attentive. Yes, the prices are high, but quality comes at a price. Compared to some so called 5* hotel restaurants in the Algarve, this restaurant is very good value.

Only minor negative is the dining area on the outside balcony permits smoking which was very irritating.

Fantastic lunch on the veranda to celebrate a family birthday. The food was superb throughout. The amuse bouche was a warm pumpkin veloute with beetroot meringue. I chose the tortellini to start, followed by breast of duck. The duck was perfectly pink and served with a Ponzu sauce. A pre-dessert of strawberry and raspberry was next, followed by a selection of cheeses with a cheese ice cream. Coffee was accompanied by three different tuiles, chocolate, pistachio and sesame seed.
The service is also of the highest standard. Everything you would expect of a Michelin rated restaurant.

This was our first visit to this restaurant in the evening and we opted for the tasting menu - we were not disappointed! This really is a stylish intimate restaurant serving great food. There wasn’t one dish we didn’t like and I have to admit we struggled to finish the last two plates! The staff are so friendly and helpful and it all adds up to a special night out. We will certainly be back.

Approaching the building in Almancil, you might just drive past and miss this gorgeous restaurant which looks like an Alpine lodge. Believe me it is worth a visit and more so if you are a bit of a foodie who likes quality. The food is amazing and beautifully presented in every way. We visited here at least 20 years ago at the point we were just discovering this area of the Algarve, and realised it had closed down soon after our first visit but kept the restaurant name. We loved it then so waited patiently for the moment for it to re-open and luckily enough it has (with the same owners). It is a must visit. The restaurant has been refurbished to a very high standard inside. Tables are available on the terrace overlooking the road side which just adds a charm to the place on a hot balmy evening. Absolutely loved it and will definitely return. I recommend for a special night out. It is quite expensive but am a believer in you get what you pay for.

Our friends have raved about the lunch at this place for sometime so we were tempted out of Quinta do Lago for a visit.
The location, by the main road from Almancil to Loule, is not inspiring but just get there as soon as you can!
The seating upstairs above the big bend in the road is fine and the views to the coast are exceptional.
I will use the words exceptional and outstanding for the rest of the whole experience! Staff, presentation, dishes and overall satisfaction with the visit is second to none.
The lunch menu at 18 euros for 2 courses has us raving in congratulations to the whole team.
We will have to go for dinner for the full works on a special occasion soon.
