Oscars Bar in Vila Sol is under a new management team of Si Frater and his lovely better half Janice Frater!

VILA VITA Parc Resort & Spa will reopen its fine dining restaurant Atlântico on 27 June, with a renewed identity that places the Algarve’s traditional roots and ingredients at the core of the menu, supervised by Chef Pedro Pinto.
