With so many restaurants to choose from, Vilamoura is a place that caters for all palates.

But out of the many restaurants that Vilamoura has to offer, where should you visit first?


Our guide to eating out in Vilamoura


Ostra D’Ouro

Just a few steps away from the marina, Ostra D’Ouro is a Portuguese restaurant that sits on a quiet street. It offers better food, prices and service than some of the restaurants located at the front of the marina, so is a real sweet spot for tourists looking for an alternative experience. A charming place with an abundance of atmosphere, the menu offers a great selection of meat and fish kebabs, as well as some speciality dishes such as fish catapalana. This is the place to visit if you want to admire the marina in a quieter location.

Il Trio

For a traditional Italian meal in Portugal (because why not), Il Trio offers the best Italian cuisine in Vilamoura. There are all the traditional dishes on offer, such as lasagne, pizza, steak and spaghetti, but also other options available should you wish to try something new. The waiters offer amazing service, speak perfect English and provide service with a smile! What more could you want from an Italian restaurant in the heart of Portugal?

O Marisco

If you’re looking for the perfect location for date night or a special occasion, O Marisco is a beautiful Portuguese restaurant overlooking the marina. Famous for their fish specialities, O Marisco offers a great selection of daily specials, as well as an à la carte menu. If fish isn’t your thing, then don’t fear, there is also the ever-popular Argentinian steak on offer, too. This is the place to come if you want to truly enjoy eating out in Vilamoura.

Harry’s Bar

If you find you’re yearning for British style food while on holiday, then Harry’s Bar is the place to go. Tucked away from the busy marina, you can relax here whilst enjoying some great quality English food. During the day, it shows live sport and is a great place to enjoy some lunch and a few drinks if you need a break from the glaringly warm Portuguese sun.

Rosa’s Cantina

Rosa’s Cantina has previously been hailed as “one of the best Mexicans in the world”, so it just had to be included in our guide to eating out in Vilamoura. Rosa’s Cantina is worth a visit if you’re a fan of something a little spicier. An authentic Mexican menu is on offer with enchiladas, tacos and burritos, and we highly recommend trying the prawn or meat fajitas. After a day in the sun, a meal and an icy cold margarita here is sure to quench your thirst and hunger!
