Quality of food, preparation and presentation were all superb. Service was very friendly, professional and knowledgable. This is the best steak restaurant in the Algarve.
Disappointed with new menu, very poor choice of starters, nothing exciting about this menu, same as so many other places. I cannot put my finger on what is missing in this restaurant, it’s such a lovely venue but lacks personality !
First time dining with you myself and my wife we had an amazing time your staff are so attentive and friendly especially Edwardo who recommended to us a gorgeous red wine he really knows his wines food was so delicious cocktails fantastic loved our experience cannot wait to return in July.
We went to the restaurant on Friday 4th May a warm welcome from the girls on reception and we were taken to our table by our lovely waitress who's service throughout the night was first class, all of our food was amazing, our wine was recommended and drinks and refills came quickly, bread and the amazing olives were also regularly restocked. Friday night was first class so we decided to come back on Sunday. It's like the restaurant knew it was our last night in the area, the service and food was awful. The restaurant was no busier than Friday night yet our drinks took for ever to come, a coke took at least 30 minutes to arrive, our food took an age to get to the table, our mains arrived before our starters were collected, on The burgers came out raw in the middle when asked to be cooked medium, the creamy spinach we have on Friday night was to die for but on Sunday it tasted completely different we had to leave it. To be fair to the manager he was very apologetic and offered to replace the meals but it was to late. At €375 for 6 people I would have expected far better, it left a sour taste in our moth after such a gtmreat weekend in Quinta do lago. In my opinion it's not worth the risk, you should get what you pay for every time and our second visit left us very underwhelmed.
Beautiful food and friendly helpful staff
Hi We were not charged for our bottle of wine. I told the staff and they put it on the bill. We had the Portuguese sauvigoin blanc, but we were charged €45 for it which seems excessive. Is this price correct? Or have we been over charged by mistake? I have emailed directly asking for the wine menu so I can double check, but I have not received a reply.
Extremely attentive staff all round and great food...a great dining experience.
Friendly and efficient staff. Good food
This is a restaurant that makes you feel really welcome. Food was really good and the fresh oysters are tasty, the steak have a really good original flavor. Really like the cocktail and the outstanding service.
Visited Bovino two years in a row now and enjoyed it both times. Great food and very pleasant staff. We will be back next year.
Great setting great service great food .
I have been here a number of times now and its one of my favourite restaurants in the Algarve. I recently got engaged here and the staff and manager went the extra mile to make this a truly memorable evening. I will be back again next time I am in the Algarve!
Always a great experience at Bovino. Food excellent quality & the salads are to die for!
Amazing food. Amazing value.
Food was excellent and wine and soft drinks were great. Service wasn’t brilliant (been 3 or 4 times before and its all been amazing) - the waiter didn’t ask my daughter how she would like her steak cooked, he forgot that we’d asked for a salad instead of chips (which we double checked to be sure) and he ordered the wrong pasta for my youngest daughter (which we again double checked). Seemed like the waiter, who was very nice, wasn’t really listening. Shame, as every time we have been to Bovino it’s been brilliant and we weee thinking of coming twice this week as we love it so much but we’re not sure now.
Very nice restaurant with a good menu. Cocktails were excellent.The food was tasty but the service was a little slow. There were some big groups in which my have impacted on the service
New serving staff, in need of proper training, rushed through meal which was a shame , food still good, but as a resident for half the year miss the old staff who made one welcome.
Excellent food and service. A little quiet but it was a Tuesday evening.
Recently had the pleasure of dining at Bovino for the first time. I had been there last year in a professional capacity and although I was able to see first hand the quality of the restaurant, I did not have the opportunity to eat there. My wife and I enjoyed a wonderful evening with food and drink all splendid. Service was exceptional so on the whole, a very nice evening and will very likely be recommending others to try it as well as returning myself I'm sure. The only couple of points that I would like to note, and these are purely my own personal grudges are that the table we were sat on (for two), had very clearly undergone some form of treatment of some kind. This left the table top very tacky to touch which felt extremely unpleasant and was quite annoying throughout the meal. The other note relates to the long sofa bench that I was sat on, although very comfortable and soft, could have done with being an inch or so higher in relation to the table. Other than that, thoroughly enjoyed it and recommend it for sure. *****
Fabulous cocktails, excellent service and steaks to die for. Only criticism - the presentation of the Caprese Salad could be more refined and with more oil and basil leaves. Will come again.
A wonderful evening from start to finish. Excellent service from attentive staff and the food was just exceptional. we can't wait to return.
Sehr freundlicher Service, Top-Qualität, ein schöner Abend in perfekter Atmosphäre.
