It's a beautiful place, it's a beautiful experience. You will enjoy a lot the food and its quality and also the atmosphere. You can actually relax and have your food without being rushed, feeling at home surrounded by nice lights and candles. The owner is also very friendly and polite. Strongly recommended. Worth more than a visit.

Came here for dinner with my partner, what a wonderful hidden gem. Such a unique experience and the place has lots of character, cosy and simple but beautiful decor. I loved the lighting and the pictures on the wall - it felt like the real Portugal. We were looked after so nicely by the owner, explained and recommended the dishes... More

We had to visit Oliveira Dourada which is our favourite restaurant in Vilamoura. We came with our newborn baby this time. The food is always brilliant, cooked and served with love. They welcomed us back as friends and we had a great time. If you want authentic Portuguese food this is the place for you. Thanks for another great visit... More

Soup and entree were brought to the table and were very tasty. We ordered blackened pork which was served mash and walnuts! Wow. We will return, if you are staying in Vilamoura or... More
