Il Lamparro - A superb Italian with delicious pasta dishes, with a good choice of wines.

Don Alfonso - Recently refurbished restaurant, Portuguese and international cuisine.

Zu Yi - A Chinese with a wide-ranging menu. The glass floor is a challenge after a few drinks!

Pescador - Local fish restaurant, no-frills but the best and freshest catch of the day.

Vilamoura is one of the more lively resorts with an extensive choice of evening entertainment,

Purobeach- At the lake in the Gardens of the Tivoli Marina Vilamoura, long theme parties with DJs and live performances.

A fantastic golfing holiday with my son. The first of many I hope !! Tom and Maria were great sorting out a last-minute change of location on the morning of our departure from The Algarve to the Costa del Sol due to the Covid-19 changes made by the Portuguese authorities.
