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.

This isn't the first review I've left for Cafe del Arte but having had such a great evening there whilst back in Vilamoura recently, I wanted to share this. We went on a Wednesday evening so had the pleasure of hearing Krasi playing violin and...Bruno Mariano singing. We've always had good food at Arte, but this time felt they have raised the bar further. Really great service too. All this despite the restaurant being completely full. The music is weather-dependent, but for the best chance of catching that, visit on either a Monday or Wednesday.More

Restaurant service was slow. Issues with overcharging bill. Nice outdoor street pavement atmosphere.

Food was the best of our week in Vilamoura! Nice smaller restaurant on a narrow cobblestone street only a couple of blocks from the harbor. We had the specials that evening (9/27), both apps and main courses. Service very attentive and personal. Highly recommended!

Fabulous restaurant behind the Hilton Hotel about 30 walk from the Marina. We went on a Wednesday night and were entertained by a singer accompanied by a violinist. Food was excellent and the ambience with the music was just lovely. Would definitely return. Much better...experience than going to the marina.More

What a wonderful find. We were staying locally and wanted to eat out for dinner somewhere within walking distance and this restaurant was a perfect spot. The staff were wonderfully friendly; very accommodating and happy to help. We had a 3-year old daughter and they...were very patient with us ordering our meals. The food was absolutely lovely, and our daughter enjoyed her main meal, as well as the yummy ice cream for dessert. Warning, do book in-advance. We found it was fully booked one evening, so made sure to book for the next. It's all outdoor seating but under a lovely veranda of grapes! Just beautiful and calm setting.More

Lovely atmosphere. Excellent food. Almost magical. I drink hot lemon water with meals. Never have I tasted anything as smooth and rich as what they concocted for me. I'll be going back.

Right next to our hotel (Hilton) and good varied menu, friendly staff, my daughter tried a fish dish for the first time and loved it, we all enjoyed the other options including the deserts. Only advice is time come before the music starts as it...can get loud towards the end with lots of merry singing and dancing or ask to be seated in the garden (uncovered) area. Nice ambience and decoration will come again if in the area. Good drink service and some good wine choices too.More

Absolutely awful experience.It seems they prioritise certain customers as we were left without drinks for over 30 minutes while other tables that came in after us were looked after.We also had to chase down a waiter to order our meal and once we did it...took over 90 minutes for some of the meals to arrive but we had to wait an additional 20 minutes for the children's food.They also served multiple meals to other tables while we were waiting for the childrens food.They were so tired when their food arrived we had to get it to take away. Given the prices I expected something special but the food was average at best and definitely overpriced. Don't waste your time or money here. There are many many better choices that will give better food and service and not charge prices for a product they can't deliver!More

Fantastic garden restaurant. Service a bit slow but the friendly staff and above average food more than make up for that. If you’re staying at the Hilton please don’t eat evening meals there and instead take the two extra minutes to walk to this place.

Definitely a restaurant of two halves. We first went and experienced the Tapas which was absolutely fabulous, so tasty and very reasonably priced, busy and a great atmosphere. We decided to go back a few days later and it just wasn't the same place. Dull...uninspiring food looked like it had been mass made and dropped on the plate. We had different mains but the sides were presented exactly the same, ratatouille and mash potatoes, which had definitely been heated up previously as they had a slight crusty skin on the top. Second meal grossly overpriced and couldn't wait to leave, also dead as a dodo in July? Stick to the Tapas its by far the best around.More
