Vistas - Monte Rei

Name of establishment

Vistas Restaurant, Monte Rei Golf & Country Club, Vila Nova de Cacela


Very upmarket golf clubhouse, more akin to the type of excusive country club you'd expect to find in Georgia or the Carolinas. Spectacular views out over the fairways complement your gourmet dining experience.


Slightly formal at first sight, but the staff make you feel at home straight away.

What to eat?

Choose between the a la carte or the degustation (tasting) menu. Either will give you an excellent appreciation of chef Albano Lourenço's mastery in the kitchen.

Sample starters include:

Horse Mackerel Salad, Cauliflower and Curry Vinaigrette

Octopus Carpaccio, John Dory in Tempura and Beetroot Canelloni

Foie Gras, Chocolate, Balsamic Flavoured Strawberries

Hake Ravioli and Red Shrimp, Carbonara Sauce

Sample mains include:

Bouillabaisse, Red Mullet Sauce, Seasonal Vegetables and Sprouts

Turbot, Stewed Tomato and Bread, Saffron Foam and Oyster Sauce

Black Angus, Caramelised Onion, Seasonal Vegetables and Red Wine Sauce

Suckling Pig Belly, Roasted Potato and Almond Sauce

Sample desserts include:

Creme Brulee, Pistachio Tuille and Vanilla Ice Cream

Carob Pudding and Strawberry

Chocolate Symphony

What to drink?

Wide selection of Portuguese and international wines, including a Wine Pairing designed to complement the degustation menu. If you're a serious wine buff, the sommelier will be your new best friend.

Why do you love it?

Unless you live close to Tavira, it might seem a long way to go to dine - but you'll go a long way to find better food than this in the Algarve.


A choice of inside or outside seating, with an outdoor terrace for pre- or after-dinner drinks.


Vila Nova de Cacela is located between Tavira and Vila Real de Santo Antonio, off the EN-125. See website for local directions.
