“Chef's Table Experience”

Fine dining and haute cuisine is something that is trendy lately and you can see by the amount of "Top 10"s and online rating apps that every restaurant has to fight for its place in the sun nowadays. You cannot live only on name or promotions, you don;t have to be the cheaper or the most expensive, you just have to be good consistently and show the passion and the vision you have on a plate.
Vila Joya is one of those places that we wanted to go but almost did not go because of the distance from Lisbon. We toured Portugal solely for trying the best restaurants and we found many jewels. The biggest jewel of all is Vila Joya.
The experience at the chef's table was a delight. To see professionals at work doing something they are proud of is something inspiring. Dishes came out like clockwork but not without soul.
I can't wait to be back in the summer.

“2 Michelin stars..and 5 Manu Stars”

where do I begin ...this was probably the most amazing and complete gourmet experience of my life. we were on our honeymoon and were told we absolutely had to eat here. we stayed at the hotel and had dinner at the restaurant. fantastic!! the staff..the food..the guy that runs were as perfect as could be..the only thing I could complain about was that it was too windy to be outdoors.. every course was a work of art..and the little surprises in between courses were delicious..

“Best experience we've ever had!”

We were celebrating our anniversary so we decided to go for lunch. From the minute we stepped through the doors we were treated like royalty. The service was absolutely impeccable and the view is incredible. We decided to have the degustation with matching wines. Each course was equally delicious and the wines were perfectly matched. The staff were able to talk us through each dish and each wine just making the experience that much better. The kitchen also sent out extra 'bites' throughout the meal so our 4 courses really turned into about 8. Would highly recommend anyone visiting here- an experience you will not forget.
