Have eaten a few times at Monica's but this weekend at my friends birthday party the food was amazing, even although they were cooking for 34 people. We started with drinks and canapes on the terrace then moved into the main restaurant for an assortment of Tapas followed by Beef Wellington, Chicken and spicy Prawns. All served without fuss and all delicious. Until we found out they were catering at the sunday pool party at the villa..................It got even better, seafood selection served on ice : fresh oysters, Prawns ,Mussells and Razor Clams followed by a BBQ that included langoustines , Rib of Beef, Ribs,Chicken.Sausages,Burgers and Fish curry with Rice, roast potatoes to die for, Can't wait till we return next year again, a huge thanks to Monica and all her team they were all magnificent

Had a great meal here, as usual, in September 2017. Food was excellent and is so well priced when compared some of the other Vale do Lobo restaurants. Great selection and good range of wines to gio with dinner.
Will definitely be back next year.

We know Monica and Louis from previous visits in their restaurant and were always impressed with the atmosphere of the location, their hospitality, the quality of food and wines.
We therefore asked them to cater for 20 guests for my 50th birthday party in our villa in Valle do lobo and Monica made it a just perfect evening. It was very easy to work wit bot. They had great and Creative ideas with lot of attention to details including flower arrangements and putting the garden and pool in scene with lights and candles. Most importantly they are
100 % reliable.

.The buffet of local specialties and seafood they served was just mindblowing, the service provided by Monica and her niece was impressive.
Thank you Monica and Louis for a memorable evening!
