We had popped over to Portugal to visit her Dad, whose been coming to this restaurant for 20 years and has some artwork from here on the walls at home. There was a lot of interesting artwork on the walls, a lovely fire roaring in the middle of the room. We went at night so didn't see the outside seating... More

Nice spacious but quaint restaurant. Limited variety on the menu. Great service. Decor is very basic. Food is ok, but pizzas were nice.

What a superb dinner with such lovely hosts. At end of dinner they surprised us by dressing up - it is Carnivale in area and they are going to a function. They were recently back from holiday in Cuba and took inspiration from that! Superb food as well as fun.

Excellent Flor and George are excellent hosts. You must try the Brazilian rump steak it's out of this world. A must for lunch and evening meal.

We visited this fine restaurant during the summer but have been there several times previously. This is an Italian type restaurant with very friendly staff. Their food is superb and they cant do enough for you to make the experience a very memorable one.

Our treat to ourselves. Holidays on the Algarve wouldn't be the same without a visit, or two, to Don Camillo's. The warmest of welcomes from Flora, Jorge & Michaela, just like meeting up with old friend. Thanks for two lovely evenings and remembering my birthday, as always the best nights of our holidays. Beautiful surroundings, lovely views, relaxed atmosphere &... More

We have been coming here for about 6 years and the food is still fantastic! We often have friends and family come to stay with us in Vale Do Lobo and we bring them to Don Camillos. It always ends up being everyone's favourite. The food is simple and delicious, the wine selection is great, it is good value for... More

Can't remember how many times we've been here but it's a must do whenever we stay in Qinta d L. Hosts Jorge and Flore, and the brilliant Michaela always give a warm welcome. The food and service are as good as ever. Highly recommended.

My dad lives close, and recommended this resturant as he goes at least once a week. I can fully understand why, the food is delicious and I cannot praise the friendly service enough.

We come here every year and are delighted by the quality of food and friendly staff. Atmosphere is great, and feels more authentic supporting an actual Portuguese family as opposed to a resort franchise. Highly recommend.
