Booked here on recommendation for my husbands 30th birthday. I stated it was a birthday when booking but didn't get anything special at all. A little disappointing. However, the food was fantastic. We will return at some point.

A nice little restaurant at mid range prices. The food is consistently acceptable but very predictable. Basically the menu hasn't really changed in the last 10 years.

I took a large group of people to this restaurant last week which everyone really enjoyed. A big thank you to all involved at A Quinta for making the evening a success. The food quality and attentive service really does gives this restaurant the edge over others in the QDL area. We will be back on the next visit to... More

Wonderful evening in an ambient setting with the friendliest of staff & consistently high standard of food. I would recommend the cauliflower soup, comes with a little surprise & the grilled tiger prawns were sumptuous! Great night Mark, Michelle & the team. See you soon!

The restaurant is beautiful and the staff great. It was not busy when we were there midweek -we sat down at 7.20 pm, and despite 3 courses were leaving an hour later. The food came so fast it was exhausting, no chance to enjoy it at all. I venture that my main course was reheated and not freely cooked, as... More

My biggest sadness is that in all our visits to the Algarve over the last 15 years we have never eaten at A Quinta!! Anyway we have now put this right and wow! what a fantastic evening. We were a party of 7 and they kindly managed to squeeze us in at 9.15 on a busy Friday evening. A menu... More

We always visit this restaurant when we are in the Algarve and have been doing so for the last 14+ years. It maintains very high standards of food and service and as such represents good value. This time we went twice and it was very good. The only disappointment was that Nick, front of house, had left and gone back... More

Not my cup of tea as the food is typically English and not always what you think it will be when ordering.

A Quinta has been a favourite of ours for 15 years and always delivers good quality food. The menu has recently changed and caused some concern as we can't ever remember a change in the past. However, it still contains many of the old house specialities which is good. Well worth the short drive out of VDL to experience the... More

We had to book this restaurant before leaving home. I suggest that if you are going in high season , you do this to avoid disappointment. This restaurant is always busy which is a very good sign. The portions are a good size , even the starters are quite large. I often have 2 starter portions and nobody minds. I... More
