We visited on a cold wet February evening after it had just reopened from the Winter break. A warm welcome awaited us, we asked if they could do us a tasting menu and as they were quiet they obliged. Had 9 courses which were delicious notably the signature dish of sea food ravioli and the foie gras dish

We stayed in Hilton Vilamoura for a week and tried several Michelin star restaurants around. Willies is by far the best. It is not cheap but overall value for money is great, given combination of the perfect food and service.

Loved this restaurant so much. We ate in the garden and the atmosphere was fantastic. A lovely relaxing atmosphere. The food was out of this world. It was up there with the Lady Helen in Mount Juliet as one of my best meals. The ravioli stood out as the best. Every mouthful I ate that night never disappointed. The wine... More

We have dined at Willie's several times and know quite an amount of other superb restaurants at the Algarve. A simple rating - this is definitely one of the best restaurants around. The seafood ravioli (and sauce) are out of this world. Sure, it's not cheap but what would you expect from a 1* Michelin restaurant. It is not an... More

Willies is a Michelin Starred establishment and it thoroughly deserves this accolade. The atmosphere, service and quality of food are second to none. We have been there three times now and have never been disappointed. Each time we visit, we are treated as old friends and always made to feel comfortable and welcome. All I will say about the food... More

I took my wife out for her birthday- we'd been to willies before . Service was friendly and relaxed. The menu hadn't changed massively in the last year and was accessible . My wife's preferences lean towards vegetarian and they were very accommodating adapting several dishes for her which she enjoyed. The wine list was very heavily Portugese- perhaps foolishly... More

Great food, great service and we will return. This is a top class restaurant and well worth a visit if you are in Villamoura.
