(We are slightly out of season) There were several diners already in the restaurant, mainly from our hotel. Staff were very polite. I opted for the prawns with garlic and piri piri, very nice. My wife ordered... More

I like Akvavit, it's a comfortable place to dine. I visit Vilamoura frequently and will always include it as one of my must visit Restaurants. Efficient and friendly staff, always attentive and ready to assist. A good Menu with plenty of choice and a Wine list which carries some excellent Portuguese wines. One of the few places to stock my... More

We were not disappointed, from start to finish we had an excellent meal, with charming staff. The pork medallions were melt in... More

Akvavit has a great position on the marina and it's lovely to eat out on the decking over the water on a warm summer evening. We went at the end of October this time - not quite warm enough to be outside but the whole front of the restaurant was opened up to maintain the atmosphere. The staff are very... More

Stopped here for a lunch and had quality prawn salad and vino for little more than a snack bar but quality establishment with service to match. Strongly recommend

Despite being extremely busy this restaurant is one of the best in the town. Certainly not cheap but food is excellent and service could not be faulted. I had the Sea Bass and this was delicious. The popularity of this restaurant can be evidenced by the fact that it has always been busy when we have visited.
