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.

A bit disappointed by the food - nothing special and fairly small portions. Seemed a lot to pay for an average meal. Location very nice and staff attentive and helpful.

Monica's is a friendly, well run local restaurant. It's very special sitting in the very comfortable seats on the Terrace in the early evening with a light warm breeze, sun going down, massive gin & tonic infront of you and on occasions a talented guitarist serenading you (but not expecting a tip!). The Octopus starter is fantastic, as is the Steak & Ale Pie. (with gravy!)The wine list is great with good value especially at the upper end wines. Suitably indulgent puddings as well. This is a great restaurant and well worth a visit.

Great food and very friendly service, went back for a second visit. Overall the price was similar to meals we had at nicer-looking restaurants on the beach front, which you would expect to be pricer, so this did seem a bit expensive (particularly 8 euros for a starter/dessert).

The food at Monica”s was fantastic. I had pork and my wife had lamb. Both were beautifully cooked. Sad that I don”t have enough days left in my holiday to go back this time. But I will be back!

Had a really enjoyable visit to Monica’s. The food was exceptional and honestly the best we had while visiting the area. Intact probably fair to say it was the best meal out we’ve had ever while on Holiday. This was the opinion of everyone and we were a party of 8. All the staff was lovely.
