Monday nights are not the best nights to visit many of TripAdvisor recommendations as many restaurants are closed, but our hotel suggested Don Alfonso and not a bad recommendation. Good quality and good choices.

Dined here whilst on holiday in Vilamoura. Lovely atmosphere,great service,good selection on the menu. The food was excellent had a starter of vegetable soup which was absolutely delicious. Followed by Filet Steak which was cooked to perfection one of the best I've eaten. Highly recommend dining here it's not terribly expensive for the standard of food so beautifully presented.

Been coming here for the last 6 years a few times a year. Had our honeymoon here, our first wedding anniversary here. Once again food amazing. Chateaubriand was cooked to perfection. Totally recommend this restaurant. Staff are great to compliment the scrumptious food.

Went past the previous night and it was packed, which is always a good sign, so booked it for the following evening. Good reserved table location and well laid out wine list.

Visited as part of a group of 8. All had exceptional service and food. Steaks were just perfect in every aspect.

We were recommended this restaurant by the bar next door. The menu was extensive and the food was fantastic, really well presented and delicious. We went on a Sunday evening, but you would probably have to book if you went on a Friday or Saturday. Will definitely try this restaurant again on our next visit.
