Having played golf we opted to have a drink and a sandwich on the terrace. We both ordered a variation on a Club sandwich, an authentic and one with chicken. The sandwiches were fine but the accompanying fries were few and far between. The service was pleasant and efficient. I know it is Vale do Lobo but I feel that... More

We had a drink in Spikes following our round of golf. All in all, very pleasant and efficient staff. Comfortable chairs, ideal after a walk around the course.

Dropped by here for a lovely coffee and it was delightful. Lots of choice and great surroundings! With the Ryder Cup in full swing a real buzz about the place

Whenever we come to the Vale do Lobo - Spikes bar is a place to visit - with a lovely cocktail area out the back you cant help but just sit back and relax - watching the sun go down. To eat, you can choose either a bar menu - or eat outside - many nights offering entertainment. The bar... More

This is one of the few places that do a happy hour. It's a must. Beautiful setting and fresh made cocktails. All 6 euro each between 6:30pm - 8pm We also came for dinner and everything was lovely. If your looking for that special dish, go for the prawn curry. It is on the pricy side but when it comes... More

Return trip, after three years, and the terrace at the golf club is still great for a family lunch or coffee break. Overlooking the verdant practice area amidst the fountains is just about the perfect location to relax. Really easy to take our recently born granddaughter who mixed in with the large groups of golfing parties so well. A simple... More

An interesting mix of relaxing views, complimented by friendly staff and a well balanced menu in which the Chef caters for a European feel of cuisine, whilst bearing in mind "healthy","light" catering for the conscious "well being". Well worth a visit! Thank you SPIKES, will be back!

Several times visited, 2 times big problems: First one there was found a piece of metal in the dish! Second time - many worms in different raspberries and SEVERAL PIECES OF GLASS and plastic found in the milkshake! Huge pieces and small pieces, some of them we drink! If you want to keep you healthy - I recommend to avoid... More

Enjoyed the Tuscan salad so much on Sunday evening, we returned on Monday, but it wasn't quite the same - hardly any tuna and no olives. Shame because it was excellent the day before. Newly refurbished, and looking very good.

We have been to Spikes for many years and it has now had a long due 'make over'. The refurbishment is lovely, they have opened up the entire resturant- not only that the food was well presented and very tasty. Many golfers go after a round of golf for a drink and snack over looking the golf course with super... More
