We visited twice during our week in Vilamoura. We have been coming to Vilamoura for over 20 years and Pipa Rota was the favourite restaurant originally. A few years later it seemed to go downhill, but more recently has become good again. The manager was very friendly and helpful. The sangria was recommended and was fantastic - so many fruits...

Portugese restaurant with plenty of choices. Lots of fish dishes to select from. Also a lot more reasonably priced as not directly on marina front but only few mins walk back

Had enjoyed this restaurant above all others on previous holiday three years ago to vilamoura but this time were disappointed. The hard working staff ( two) knew that they were not coping on a busy night and mistakes on ordering and delivering both food and drink were acknowledged. But not rectified during the meal. Food was only average and a... More

Spotted this little restaurant on our first day and liked the look. There are lots of beautiful looking restaurants on the marina, but thought this looked friendly and not flash, which more often than not are the best type of restaurant. We had sardines to start, which my husband and I shared which came with a salads with pickled red... More

The staff at this family run restaurant are super friendly, will make you laugh and are happy to get you anything you need. The food is fresh and tasty. I had the sardines and sea bass but was also tempted by the great range of meat dishes available too. Would definitely recommend and will definitely be returning here.

Asparagus wrapped with Parma ham to start which was delicious and the husband had fish soup which was also very tasty. Tagliatelle with prawns and chicken in a champagne and... More
