Perfect for sundowners and dinner a deux. Book a table on an evening with a full moon. You won’t be sorry.

Willies Restaurant

This wonderful restaurant in Vilamoura is the perfect place for an excellent romantic dinner. The cosy, classical dining room at Willies is perfect for an intimate meal on a chilly winter's day, while the outside garden terrace is ideal for making the most of the balmy Algarve summer evenings. What's more, the food is wonderful, as beautiful as it is tasty.

Casa do Campo

For some secret garden magical romance, Casa do Campo, in Almancil is hard to beat. Rustically charming and elegantly simple, the stars of the show here are the food, of course, and the amazing and expansive fig tree that is over 200 years old and is the centre of attention on the garden terrace. With luscious generosity, this great tree frequently drops fresh figs in to the laps of diners. Literally.


Starlight and romance go very well together. At Ocean Restaurant , the flagship gourmet restaurant of Vila Vita Parc, you can enjoy a meal that shines with the brilliance of not one, but two, Michelin stars. Aside from the highest standards of food and service, Ocean Restaurant also offers views that are simply beautiful.

Parrilla Natural

If you like your romance with a generous dash of chic and stylish, then Parrilla Natural is the place for you. Here you can dine beneath the stars, under the protective canopy of a huge pine tree, sipping Parrilla Natural’s signature mojitos and enjoying seriously good beef. A very large restaurant, each guest is nonetheless made to feel like the most important person in the place. (Bonus Restaurant - visit Parrilla Natural's sister restaurant, Gourmet Natural, and enjoy a fine meal on their tropically lush summer deck.

Those lazy languid days of summer are conducive to slow, romantic meals, while watching the sun dip below the horizon. Windsurf is a simple restaurant set right on the huge expanse of Alvor beach that offers not only delicious and fresh food with friendly, unhurried service, it offers the rare opportunity to really appreciate the moment – there are no TVs here or canned music -  the background music is provided by the waves crashing on the beach.


NosoloÁgua Beach Club and Restaurant overlooks the Praia da Rocha marina and beach. It is beautiful, indulgent, chic and trendy, sand-between-your-toes luxury.  Lounge on a private daybed for two while sipping champagne, nibble some sushi and enjoy the views.
