2 for 1 at The Village Restaurante

Patrons looking for authentic and mouth-watering Mediterranean cuisine in the Capital need look no further than The Village Restaurante. The food listing is generously proportioned and divided neatly into fish, meat and pasta dishes to aid visitors when perusing the long menu. Homemade food is fresh and seasonal; presenting genuine ingredients at their very best.

Fresh fish and smoky chargrilled meats set taste buds alight and introduce palates to fine Mediterranean fare. The delicious menu has been devised by Portuguese-born Head Chef José Viegas whose passion for Mediterranean ingredients is skilfully reflected in the myriad dishes on display.

For appetisers, be seduced by the choice of hot and cold starter plates. These appear to provide infinite variety, among which are octopus salad, black pork Parma ham, avocado prawns, fried Portuguese white pudding, BBQ Portuguese chorizo, and Mediterranean prawns in white wine, garlic and chilli. Fresh offerings from the sea grace the main course listings and include fillet of black scabbard from Maderia, grilled octopus, and grilled white grouper.

Carnivores can be treated to the chicken escalope with spaghetti Pomodoro, grilled spare ribs, and a grilled ribeye steak. There are a plethora of pasta and pizza dishes to satisfy cravings for these time-honoured Italian staples. Round off a pleasing savoury introduction to Mediterranean cuisine with a panna cotta, lemon tart, or chocolate mousse, and leave feeling completely satisfied.

Head Chef José is supported by a professional front of house team who work hard to fulfil restaurant Director Paulo Gouveia’s mission of providing a professional and gracious setting and service. Restaurant Manager Vitor Duarte oversees the operation and casts a professional eye to make sure everything is as it should be. The end result for the patron is a delightful dining experience in an ambient setting.

Enjoy fresh dishes of distinction at The Village Restaurante in Lambeth and embrace the Mediterranean with gastronomical gusto.

  • "Great Food But...
    I regularly come to dine at this place using the Tastecard, the place is almost empty all the time, which I don't mind, the music is horrible though but that's my personal opinion, the staff are very serious and it's a bit awkward, specially the manager. Last two times I came it wasn't a great experience, there were two kids screaming and jumping everywhere around the restaurant and the family did nothing to stop it or neither the staff ask them to control their kids. My dine experience ended up with a massive headache between the music and little screaming machines.

    The reason why I keep coming back is the food, is 10000% good, they serve olives, bread and ham for free, and te mains comes with a massive sides, is always too much food, and the quality of it is beyond excellent. If there's no kids screaming and you like that jazzy music with no lyrics for all your dinning time then is the perfect restaurant for you. "
