Quinta do Lago's signature restaurant
Enjoy one of Bovino's fabulous cocktails at the gorgeous long bar before your meal.
Bovino Restaurant is a sumptuous steakhouse set in the luxury resort of Quinta do Lago. Serving supreme quality beef from around the world, in a setting that beautifully combines contemporary and traditional touches, Bovino delivers an exceptional steakhouse experience.
Bovino occupies a prime spot within Quinta do Lago resort, overlooking the lake and the Ria Formosa Natural Park. A recent addition to Quinta's restaurant line up, Bovino is housed in what was the original farmhouse building, back when the resort was just a dream, not yet a reality, and is next door the renewed and renovated Casa Velha restaurant. With a nod to its rich history, the décor at Bovino, under the expert guidance of Lázaro Rosa-Violan, marries traditional elements such as Portuguese calçada (cobbles) and tiles with modern urban elements to create a luminous and rich dining space, both inside and outside on the spacious patios. With unbeatable views across Quinta do Lago resort, al fresco dining here is quite unique.
The beautiful, eclectic décor is a feast for the eyes and sets the mood for the exceptional food that is served at Bovino. Tender, succulent beef from Ireland, Argentina, USA and Australia, dry-aged for 28 days, cooked with care and served with flair is what Bovino is all about. Choose your favourite cut - fillet, T-bone, Ribeye or a Chateaubriand to share....add the perfect sauce, and enjoy. The focus at Bovino is on beef, but not exclusively so. The menu also features Lamb Rack, duck, a selection of fish and seafood and vegetarian options. Special mention for the fabulous starters, particularly the fresh, local Ria Formosa oysters and the delicious Empanadas. The wine list at Bovino is on par with the excellent food, offering some of the finest Portuguese and international wines.
Given its superb location, décor and food, and with a capacity for almost 400 people, Bovino is an excellent venue for weddings and events. During the summer months, the Sunday Brunches at Bovino are the place to be seen. Bovino is also a great family venue during the summer months. While the adults enjoy the sumptuous food, junior visitors have a special play area complete with bouncy castles and a team of fun-engineers to keep them entertained.
Bovino is open daily from 18:00 to 23:00h.
Bovino is just one of several great dining options at Quinta do Lago.
