If I could give this place 0 stars I would. Food was alright. The waiter on the other hand. Tall chap, brushed back, dark hair. Disgraceful customer service. He was SO rude. He actually sighed at us and tutted at us for asking if we could move tables because we wanted to get out the sun (we felt we were... More

We stopped here on our first night in Vilamoura for something to eat. Our group consisted of 14 women for a friends birthday celebrations. We all ordered starters and main meals, the food was very good and the service was excellent. The waiters were very attentive. Would definitely go back again. Leysa xx

We were walking around the Marina and decided to stop for a drink. The cocktails were not the best but were acceptable. It is hard to discern the use of alcohol in cocktails in Vilamoura in 2017. There seems to have been a cut back by penny pinching in quality in all aspects of catering. We stayed and enjoyed the... More

We come to vilamoura regularly and gaveva is always a restaurant we come back too. The food is tasty and so reasonably priced compared to the other restaurants on marina. It's not as fancy but has a lovely atmosphere with nice staff. We often come just for the jug of sangria and sit out overlooking the marina. A little gem!

Everything seemed great, olives and rolls came down(but I read on another review they charge for these even though we didn't request them). Our drinks we brought to us a large Fanta; we didn't take any notice because we thought... More

After being held on on the walk way by one of the waiters selling us the place it SEEMED to tick all the boxes. The kids were very cold so we took a punt - they said not a problem we have heaters, the heaters never came on throughout the whole dinner. We were given covers and charged for them... More
