Parrilla Natural Steak House Restaurant
One of the best dining experiences in the Algarve.
Parrilla Natural is a meat lovers Shangri-La and a bon vivant's paradise. The lush gardens, huge deck and wonderful dining room are the perfect setting for one of the best dining experiences in the Algarve.
Set within vast grounds near Vale de Lobo in the heart of the Algarve's Golden Triangle, Parrilla Natural exudes a magic garden ambience that, along with the warmth of South American hospitality, charms everybody that enters.
Through the elegant bar and dining room, the floor to ceiling windows lead onto the fantastic terrace and deck. Centre stage is a wonderful old umbrella pine tree, rumored to be over 200 years old, its graceful branches forming a natural canopy over the deck - a fantasy island of natural elements to perfectly complement the naturally gourmet food.
Sitting at the deck bar, sip a cocktail (delicious exclusive mojitos) while perusing the menu. Meat is what it is all about at Parrilla Natural. The meat is 100% Uruguayan grass fed beef - low in fat, high in Omega 3 and Vitamin E and totally delicious. The meat is cooked on the custom-built grill - the Parrilla - over firewood, not charcoal. With the attention to detail that makes this an exceptional restaurant, they don't use just any old firewood at Parrilla Natural. The wood is a very particular type that comes from the Alentejo region of Portugal, north of the Algarve. If you can drag yourself away from the deck, you can opt to sit at the grill table and watch the chefs expertly grill up the cuts of meat.
Aside from beef the menu also features chicken and fish dishes, as well as vegetarian options. There are some typical South American side dishes and sauces too. And you can discover the well-stocked wine cellar with a large selection of wines from Uruguay. There are vegetarian options on the menu too and vegan dishes can be prepared on request. There is a special menu for children.
And thinking of younger clients, there is a great play area for children at Parilla Natural with slides and rides, an open-air cinema complete with a popcorn stall and delicious ice-cream. The area is fully supervised too with the minders expert in face-painting, fun and games. Parrilla Natural's younger guests love it, and the parents love that they can enjoy their meal in peace! Families can opt to dine next to the play area in the special seating area or can dine on the main deck.
Parrilla Natural opened in 2011 and quickly became THE restaurant to visit. Visiting here you will meet the Parrilla Family - a very enthusiastic and experienced team, that welcomes you every day as a friend.
Parrilla Natural is run by the same team that made Gourmet Natural restaurant in Vale do Lobo, such a success story (with a new Gourmet Natural to come in 2024). The absolute insistence on quality is visible in every aspect of the restaurant. The Parrilla Natural team's passion, pride and delight in what they have to offer is contagious.
Perfect for warm and vibrant Algarvian nights to enjoy refreshing cocktails at the outside bar and deck, the restaurant also offers you a cozy and delicious inside dining experience and does a great Sunday Lunch option too, during the winter months. A visit to Parrilla Natural is a different but authentic, and hugely enjoyable experience. It's a favourite with visiting celebrities too.
