“Nice place for a meal with the family.”
Reviewed 3 July 2014

We have eaten here twice and it is a lovely restaurant. The food is fresh and very good quality. The atmosphere is very nice as it is set in a large Garden ( bring insect repellent). The staff were very attentive and happy to help were possible. On the upper price range for the area but worth the money.

“Wildly overpriced steak and chips”
Reviewed 3 July 2014

We had dinner with friends at Gourmet Natural. The steak was well cooked as requested, but on the small side, the chips were nice and crisp, as you would expect. The salad, nothing special. Foolishly, we tend to be trusting, we didn't check the price of the house wine. Well, 24 euro's a bottle.I guess a 10 fold mark up. I think the bill for the 4 of us was around 350 euro. It's a tourist trap. But, the outside space is great. So, if you want to be trapped book now.

“Lovely evening”
Reviewed 27 June 2014

Booked this restaurant in the afternoon for the evening which was very lucky that we managed to get a table. The atmosphere is very relaxed the setting is stunning, and the food is excellent. At no point were we rushed whatsoever to finish just asked when we were ready for the next course. A very good find in Almancil and we will be back that's for sure.

“Superb”
Reviewed 22 June 2014

Beautiful garden setting and we were so well looked after. Service was spot on and our needs well catered for, for example the wine was decanted as asked. Delicious steak as you would expect. The pièce de résistance was the apple pancake - simply superb. On our second visit during our week's stay, we were welcomed back like old friends which made us feel very special. We will be back and won't hesitate to recommend this restaurant to our friends visiting the Algarve.

“"Beautiful Evening"”
Reviewed 10 June 2014

Visited Saturday 7th June 2014……Weekend away with good friends. WOW from start to finish it was the perfect evening. Greeted with warm smiling attentive staff who took us straight out into the seated area at the back of the restaurant for pre dinner drinks…..Fabulous cocktails. We were then shown to our table- which in my view because of the weather was the best in the house inside, overlooking the outside area perfect! Then the WOW factor really started "George" what can I say you are a complete "Superstar" your warmth of generosity to making our evening just perfect was done with lovely humour, excellent choice of wine( did not go for the most expensive like most would do!!!)he even brought Mosquito spray for our legs under the table!!!! George moved around the restaurant with charisma and charm making everyone feel special in their own right not just us. The food throughout our evening was "First Class" I agree a little over priced, however you only get what you pay for.The starters were beautifully presented and very yummy, very jealous of hubby's prawns…Huge and so tasty - after pleading to try!!! Our steaks were cooked to perfection melt in your mouth delicious, with beautifully cooked side orders to compliment perfectly. What started out as a very cloudy day…..George and staff ended our day with rays of Sunshine. Many thanks for a beautiful evening. We hope you enjoyed your time with your grandson George? Would definitely return for that special evening of fabulous food, drink and service. Nice one George!
