Home / Reviews / Eat / Modern /EMO - Anantara Vilamoura

EMO - Anantara Vilamoura


International modern-minimalist design - dark walls with sparse art, dark leather seating, glass and mirrored surfaces to the fore, low-level lighting. Chic without being pretentious.

The terrace opens it up, especially when the weather is good. There are (very) distant sea views, and the restaurant overlooks the Victoria golf course and the hotel swimming pools and gardens.


The staff are both friendly and efficient. Eat inside if you want a quiet corner to yourself, or outside if you're happy to socialise.

The food
The food is international, but with an inventive Portuguese twist - and considerably better than you might have come to expect from hotels in holiday destinations.

Typical starters (primarily fish/seafood) include mackerel, seafood rice, turbot and sea bass.

Typical main courses (primarily meat) include duck, veal, lamb and beef, with pea ravioli as the vegetarian option.

Typical desserts include espresso and pastel de nata, and egg yolk pudding with port.

There is also a six-course tasting menu comprising scallops, bisque, sea bass, beef fillet, and two desserts, plus sharing dishes (pre-order, for two) including octopus, sea bass in salt crust, and pork cheeks.

The drink

A wide selection of sensibly-priced Portuguese wines with a handful of international varieties. A wine pairing option is also available with the tasting menu.


The Anantara Vilamoura (formerly the Tivoli Victoria) is 3km north of Vilamoura Marina. Well-signposted. Plenty of free parking. EMO is on the second floor.
