Visiting the Algarve will only be complete when you sample some of the best flavours in Portugal as well as the centuries of history you can find here. Our Family of Restaurants offer the perfect blend of what a superb dining experience should be: memorable, great fun and full of flavours.


A beautiful and quaint property where you can sample our delicious ‘Tapas & Petiscos’ whilst enjoying the most peaceful views of the unspoilt countryside hills.

Vale do Lobo

Located close to Vale do Lobo’s main entrance, at Monica’s you can enjoy the finest delicacies and a tremendous menu crafted by our talented Chef João Duarte.
