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.

Excellent restaurant, passed by so many times but don’t know why we have never visited. Beef Wellington and Pork Medallions the best that we’ve had. The house dry white wine is superb. Well recommended.

Having visited Vale Do Lobo many times over the last 10 years I feel a little foolish that I have not experienced Monica's before. It was absolutely wonderful. we ate outside, the atmosphere was excellent, service even better and the food, wow best meal all week. I will definately be returning on my next visit. i could not recommend this highly enough, if like me you haven't tried Monica's and stuck to the more well known restaurants you will not be disappointed, the best fish curry I have ever had Matt

Was one of the best meals we have had on the algarve. Great atmosphere and service. My little one loved the little swings and slides which kept him occupied whilst my husband and I enjoyed some lovely wine. Thank you and we will be back soon.

Great food, lovely setting but service was very slow ; 2 hours for main course to arrive for a table of 5. However restaurant was busy so may explain it and waiter was apologetic and gave complimentary drinks. Still an enjoyable evening and would visit again.

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.
