Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The interior is incredibly beautiful and we enjoyed being seated at a very lovely place. I was served a stunning starter, mushrooms in a very surprisingly way spiced and my husband a soup, both made us happy and expecting more. We should have sticked by...the starters. My husband was served 6 small slices of beef, so full of tendons that half of it could not be eaten. We both were served tasteless vegetables, some of it severely burned. Except the half onion which looked nice, but was out of place, because we do not eat onions and of course informed the staff about this. My lamb was nicely soft and pink but had somehow lost everything that makes the difference between veal, beef and lamb. The dessert was the same, nice texture but no taste. In the end I had the strange impression that the famous cook left the restaurant after finishing the starters and took all the spices with him. Anyway no one reacted not even to Michaels remarks about his meet , as if the fact that the main ingredient to the main course is awful , is not important) , So we left very professionell seated and waived good buy,More

Had dinner earlier this week, been many times before, and yet again the food and service was outstanding. The food was delicious and beautifully presented. Staff are very knowledgeable and can discuss the dishes in detail. I would recommend the wine pairing. A special way...to try different wines which is tailored not only to the food but your individual tastes. An outstanding evening and we will return on our next visit to QDLMore

A great selection that was beautifully presented that would shame a number of top London restaurants. Incredibly good value and a must for when we come to Quinta do Lago again. Thank you for making our 25th anniversary special.

I highly recommend a visit to Amara at Four Seasons Fairways. I appreciate it seems strange visiting a restaurant on a timeshare complex, but Amara is well worth making an exception. The food is exceptional both in terms of quality and value. The staff are...all very attentive and enthusiastic. If the weather is good request an outside table. Forget your instinctive prejudices and try this excellent restaurant.More

Dined here last night and the meal was absolutely faultless. We all had different dishes and every single one was delicious. Presentation was perfect too. The service too was brilliant. Really nice ambience - we were treated to live music from a really good singer...accompanied by a guy on a saxophone. If you are in the area then I would 100% make a booking and go - we will definitely be going back.More

We ate twice at Amara whilst on holiday and had first class food, wine and service on both occasions. The octopus was the star of our first visit and the mackerel the star of our second. The wine pairings (great to see all Portuguese wines)...were spot on. The staff were friendly and attentive. A first class restaurant for a special night out.More
