Both meals were of the highest quality and tasted amazing , the service was top... More

My wife and I had the chateaubriand, requested it be cooked medium rare and it was. The sources that accompanied the beef were also very tasty. The ambience and service impeccable, a great way to finish our short break. When I return next March for my golfing break I will be visiting this restaurant again.

Lovely staff 1st of all, very efficient and friendly. The night we dined there was a storm of biblical proportions but we soldiered onto here as we had booked. The main course was a bit disappointing, steak not that hot and not very tender for a fillet. Desserts were different to the UK with the same name but still very... More

We booked the news as a golfing party of 16, and it seemed when we arrived they had framed in every other golf party they could fit mixed with couples. The tables where wedged togther with no room to get in or out. The food choice was good however the quality of the food was fairly average matched I have... More

We returned to the News Cafe as we'd had a great lunch there last year. This year no different. We love the location and relaxed chilled out feel the decor offers. We ate outside and as it was hot the spray mist of water was welcome. We all had different lunches - 2 salads and a wrap followed by desert.... More

Late dinner at 'News ' as we had only just arrived in Vilamoura. This was a recommendation from a colleague. The service was ok , not as welcoming as other restaurants we later visited . The scallop pasta was very nice . There were plenty of scallops. I thought the food was expensive . On reflection eating on the Marina... More

The first day (25th of Sep) we and another couple decided to have lunch - the drinks order was forgotten about by the waiter and eventually arrived (after asking twice) 25 mins later - 2 no. waters and...

Booked a table to sit outside (table for 6) - sadly had to request another table inside. Three customers were drinking heavily, being loud and discourteous to other customers. The staff were unable to control the situation and although they were asked to quieten down, they continued being noisy and disrespectful and did not leave. Two of our four meals... More
