About Gourmet Natural Restaurant
Set in the former Ermitage restaurant, Gourmet Natural near Vale de Lobo and Quinta do Lago has charm, charisma and elegance in abundance. Add quality cuisine and wonderful South American hospitality and you begin to get an idea of what Gourmet Natural is about.
The main focus of the Gourmet Natural menu is top quality natural Uruguayan beef, grilled, not over charcoal, but fresh firewood. All the meat has 100% trace ability and comes from free range Angus and Hereford grass-fed cattle. The resulting beef has low fat levels, high levels of omega 3 and vitamin E. The special grill, the Parilla, was made to the Uruguayan chefs' specifications and stands to one side of the courtyard. Just watching the chefs expertly juggle the meat and flames is an entertainment. We are very proud of the food we serve - it is unpretentious and straightforward but of superior quality. Naturally gourmet.
Lovely Restaurant with great food
Ok .. Having dined at Parilla many times we were really looking forward to trying Gourmet ..Your staff/food/location/atmosphere all great .. but it was obviously a bad day for the new chef ... starters came quick - way over an hour for the mains and the restaurant wasn’t even remotely full ...steaks seemed to have sat around as they weren’t hot - next door sent two steaks back as they were cold - you obviously have the potential of parilla just sad we didn’t experience it .. we will try again.. everyone deserves a second chance .
We always have a god meal at Menta Pimenta and have returned to this restaurant for the past 3 years and will continue to do so.
Wonderful evening, in a classy and relaxed setting. The service was excellent: friendly and efficient. We'll be back!
Fantastic family evening with delicious food. It would have been better if bottles of wine/water etc were left at table not kept to side where you had to wait on staff.
Great food, amazing service!
I placed our reservation a couple of months in advance. Although I did not specify a table, we were seated up near the kitchen area, surrounded by families with young children. We would have preferred seating further down the restaurant, where we have been previously. I do admit that I did not specify this when making the reservation. However, other local restaurants that we pre booked contacted us with requests re seating preference. This would have been a good option for us. Saying that, the meal, service & staff were superb. It is my favourite restaurant in the Almancil area, without hesitation. Thank you. Annamarie Sheeran
Perhaps try to keep the cats away from the outside area! It may be part of your culture but for the money you charge it is somewhat off- putting
Very good service, atmosphere and steaks
Fantastic meal and service, as always. Wonderful way to end our holiday in Portugal. We will definately be back again next year!
Will be back again on our next visit
A lovely evening - excellent food, service and atmosphere!
A beautiful setting where one can truly relax and enjoy the delights of the kitchen, with sumptuous cocktails, a wine list to compliment the food and staff that set you at ease there is no need to move for several hours, it is a restaurant made for the best dining experience.
Sitio espectacular, trato inmejorable y la comida de 10. Por poner algún pero, los mosquitos que no nos dejaron en paz, pero como están en todo nos dieron repelente y solucionado el problema.
The only thing I was disappointed with was the covers. No imagination or thought was put in to them, actually the ones at Parilla are better with the pate / small pieces of beef in salsa. Before having steak you don't always want a starter but the covers are a nice intro. Everything else was amazing but these need improvement - thanks
Such an amazing place. Tranquil ambience. Service is excellent. Steaks succulent & tasty due to way cooked on the Parilla plus excellent quality meat. Sides so flavoursome.
We had a fantastic meal/evening here this week the food was delicious and the staff could not have been more helpful. We had a party of 8 and nothing was too much trouble
Fantastic evening - food and venue was beautiful and service was excellent. Very accommodating of infant & buggy and called ahead to offer high chair! Would definitely recommend but our only complaint / negative was the bugs / mosquitos which needs to be addressed (beyond offering spray!)
Service is excellent from all the staff, the quality of food does not match.
We had a wonderful evening here celebrating a wedding anniversary and birthday. The waiting staff were so friendly especially with our grandchildren of 4 and 2. The steaks were out of this world, the best we've ever had. Gourmet Naturel is a really special place to dine and it was just a 2 minute walk for our family as we were staying in a villa just a couple of minutes along the road. We will be back !!
Great ambience - intimate feel. Service was excellent - clear leadership evidenced by staff.. Food excellent. Overall a very good dining experience.
Fabulous restaurant can't wait to go back, food, service and setting first class
delicious, romantic, superb meal! beautiful setting, great attentive service and the most delicious food. we had scallops, lobster, sirloin and fillet and it was divine!! our cocktail drinks were a bit slow...where our starter came at the same time as a cocktail and the meaning of having a cocktail is before dinner, but never mind! they were delish! will definitely be going back again!
Side dishes should not be sold separately. This is the cheapest to buy on the market and the sales price is exagerated. Pity, because your wines are great and although you make a huge percentage on them it is acceptable. But a small dish of beans, potatoes and carrots for 4€ is actually not classy.
