Came here because it was our last evening in Vila Moura & fancied a well recommend place. We were not disappointed Chico was lovely, so friendly and passionate about his restaurant which was so nice. We had Gambas which was incredible had extra bread to dip in the garlic sauce! The sausage came out in a firing pig china pot which was such a lovely touch. We had 2 big jugs of sangria because it was so so tasty! Big up Maria Chico’s wife who made all the food, he spoke so highly of her and it was all so tasty! We had 3 Chico steaks for mains, was huge and so tender! Also the apple tart for pudding was sooooo good I could have eaten more! All in all the service and food was fantastic and I highly recommend!Thanks Chico & Maria xxx

All dishes were authentic and tasty. Decent wine selection and very friendly staff. The only little niggle was a very noisy table of 13 guys next to us and one guy who did a great impression of a megaphone, however the restaurant staff were apologetic and couldn’t really do much about it (learning is don’t be seated next to a long table) Can’t fault the food or service, a great Italian restaurant.

Came across this restaurant whilst waking around Vilamoura Marina, lunches were very reasonably priced so in we went. The restaurant was bright cheerful and very clean, a very warm welcome was extended to us and service was first class, the food was first class, well cooked, well presented and delicious.

Reviewed By gjoh1956

This is the third time we have dined at this restaurant, and our two previous reviews gave a very positive account of the experience. This time it is more mixed, but let's begin with the good things. The food is still vey good. My wife was particularly happy with her starter and main course. Her tortellini was one of the best she has ever tasted.My starter of coffee smoked duck was OK, but the slices where so thin they looked like they had been painted on, and one of the main sauces tased like a thicker AI sauce. My main was very tasty, a 14 hour cooked portion of lamb. But there was no real skill here to reflect the price. My dessert was pear tart-this was tarted up (forgive the pun) with a tweel. The tweel tasted dry and bland and the cold pieces of stewed pear were unappealing. Once again my wife way more that happy with her purple chocolate dessert.The service overall was very good, although because we were 9mins early we were asked to wait outside in the corridor. Whoever turns up anywhere exactly on the minute?There is a very good wine list particularly for wines form Portugal. I asked the wine waiter's advice for a Portugese white wine similar to a Burgundian style. He gave us two options and we were allowed to taste both. These were two quite expensive wines-110 and 95 euro respectively, but they were quite good. Now given all the mystique around wine and serving wine, our first glasses were served at an appropriate temperature, but the wine was left in an ice bucket and by the time of the last glass it was too cold and tasted of nothing. The restaurant was half empty surely this could have been avoided by giving the process some attention.Now some of the above may sound a bit picky, but the prices this restaurant charges are the same as other michelin starred restaurants in the area (and above some). For 275 euros for two, I expect much more; more quality, more consistency, more courtesy for customers slightly early, and more attention to the care and delivery of expensive wines.We previously wrote that this restaurant was not ready for a michelin star but that it was getting there, but now it has gone backwards, and I'm afraid we won't be back.Dear Guest,We were devastated to hear that we have failed to meet your expectations; all your valuable inputs have been put forward to the team.We wish nothing more than to be given the opportunity to revert your last review, do advise should you return to EMO in a near future.Life is a journeyMarta Mota Pinto

Having read glowing reviews we took a taxi there. We were very disappointed. Couvert (very plain breads and pate) was very ordinary and at €8 each quite expensive. Given complimentary starter but would have preferred to pay the €8 for a starter of choice. Main course was average and a couple of items were not available that night.Está a mentir não pagou o couvert ( pão, agua, pate, doce, e queijo da ilha dos Acores ) não pagou nada por tudo isto ! as entradas são 8 euros mas inclui a sobremesa que é oferta ! certo ? a proprietaria.

We visited Cafe del Arte with family that have been visiting this restaurant for a few years now and we were not disappointed. On a Wednesday evening they bbq and provide live entertainment. The bbq is brought directly to your table with side salads whilst you sit and enjoy the entertainment. You feel as though you are sitting on a set of Mamma Mia under the grape vines and white tables and chairs! Service is very friendly and then the entertainment begins ........ usually Krassie ( one of the owners) plays violin to diners but on this occasion there was also an acquaintance of his from Dubai, a fabulous musician who played harp whom he accompanied. It was truly breathtaking. There are also dancers who put on a good show. We had the best evening and will certainly return on our next visit to Villamoura. Obrigado.

Rei do Churrasco

This is a restaurant/take away that serves the best chicken piri piri I have ever had!

Reviewed By Manse7

We have been visiting the restaurant and takeaway for nearly ten years as a family. Despite the change of ownership, there has been no detrimental changes to the quality or price of the food. The seasoning on the chicken is a highlight, and we can feed a family of 4 for around £20 and still have leftovers for sandwiches. We will continue to recommend this place to friends that visit. Worth having an ice cold Super Bock whilst you wait, doors open for takeaway just before 7. Keep up the good work! Eating in is also a great option. The service is particularly friendly and the team made us feel very welcome with our young children. I recommend the Madeira beef skewer. We will definitely keep returning and keep up the great service!Thanx Mr. P. for keep visiting and giving your opinion, we really try to be TOP , not easy in this season but we really try, thanx for be inconditional : ) AtteThe cashier
