About Monica's

Monica's Restaurant
Located just outside the entrance of Vale do Lobo, at Monica’s you can enjoy an exquisite and varied menu prepared by our talented Chef João Duarte.

Originally founded in the 90s, this spot has always been a firm favourite for both locals and visitors alike.

Presenting a cozy, sophisticated and romantic atmosphere, the restaurant is further complemented by a pleasant garden, a rustic terrace and a lovely dining room designed to make you feel at home.

A sumptuous wine list is paired with a varied menu, where a vast selection of tender and succulent meats takes centre stage and is also accompanied with the freshest fish and some vegetarian options to suit all tastes.

We enjoyed a lovely evening at Monica's and would highly recommend. From the moment we arrived to a genuinely warm welcome, we were looked after to perfection. Attentive service, friendly ambience and absolutely delicious food. Even all of the breads are home-made. There are so many positives it would be impossible to list them in this short space. We have dined there many times and it has never failed to please and delight.

We had a lovely meal, we really enjoyed the setting. The food was delicious and the wine was excellent! The menu offered lots of options without being too fussy. Both our fish dishes were very tasty. We will definitely book again.
