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.
Amazing food and service!
One of the nicest places we have dined. Staff were lovely professional and friendly the food was amazing so fresh and cooked to perfection. Overall a wonderful experience will go again.
2th diner this week even better. Good service en great food 😄
Exelent restaurant ! Good food, perfect service 👍
Had a lovely meal in Monica's. Can't wait to return next year. Fillet Steak was incredible! Service was lovely and friendly. Pie and Chips was also fantastic. Great menu, great wines and a lovely experience.
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.
Lovely setting, good menu, excellent food and service. Would highly recommend.
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.
Comida muito boa e excelente atendimento
We love Monica’s! Always great food and the friendliest service!
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.
Good food, nice atmosphere and table setting. Food was delish and servers were so friendly and accommodating. Would go again!
A great place , we always return every year😀
Tapas excelentes! Espaço muito agradável e atendimento muito simpático e profissional.
Fantastic restaurant! The food is incredible and the staff can’t do enough for you. My family and I have been coming for years and are never disappointed.
Excellent quality of food and service - have made this a regular visit on our holiday - really great. Would recommend to anyone who has not been.
Best meal we have had in the Algarve. Food was amazing and service was impeccable
Simply the best restaurant in the Algarve
Lovely restaurant. Really friendly & excellent food. Highly recommend. Covid safety in place. Would definitely return. Have passed on my recommendation to my family
Had a really lovely meal at Monica’s. The setting is beautiful, staff are very friendly and attentive and food is delicious! We will definitely be visiting again.
Excellent food and service. We will return 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.
Been here as part of a group and as a couple. Always excellent service and super good. My favourite.
