Shelfish restaurants and New years eve

by Devonish

Hi all. I would like to know if there is a really good shellfish restaurant in lagos, or portimao, and the best places to be in lagos on New years eve? All sugestions welcome. Thank you all

Re: Shelfish restaurants and New years eve

by cachaseiro

the best shellfish in all algerve is made in a tıny little restaurant called "casinha do petisco".
it's located in the old part of lagos and looks like a little crappy snackbar but the owner louis has a golden touch with his food.
ask the locals for the adress.
most people know him because he's so damn good.
the restaurant is just around the corner from "whytes bar".

i used to be responsıble for the sale of about half the boat trips leaving lagos.
i worked on the avenida for 2 summer seasons.
i worked with paolo santos and the big boats via sagres and via lagos, plus a few other boats.

i guess i made myself most famous for dating his daughter and having the biggest sh!t fight with him after we broke up in the middle of the avenida :O)

Travel Tips for Lagos

Meia Praia

by Leipzig

Meia Praia means "Half Beach". It is located about three kilometers northeast of Lagos and is perhaps the reason why most tourists come to Lagos. However, it is not over-crowded by tourists. You have enough space to sunbath or to build a sand castle.

Don't Miss The Fresh Shellfish!!!

by acilina

This is seafood cooked and served in a "Cataplana", a traditional pan, generally made of copper. It seem 2 equal shells that close tight, so the food are cooked under pressure and keep all his flavour. It opens on the table and you feel the pleasant smell of fresh coriander, tomatoes, peppers, oignons and obviously the shellfish, all in a mediterranean way. You must look for a Restaurant that have serve this.

The old city walls.

by cachaseiro

Lagos still has a fairly large part of the old city walls left intact.
They really add the the nice vibe of the town and you should make sure to pass by them and have a look at them while you are strolling along the river in Lagos.

Astonishing beaches

by pmuller

"Crystal water"

Lagos is a small town where lies incredibly crystal clear water beaches. During high season (summer season), prices go up with the tourism and some places get very crowd, so the best thing to do is going during mid-season (april-jun, or sep-oct) but the water may be cold during mid-season.

Praia Dona Ana is one of my favorite beaches in Portugal

"Water sports"

Because of its crystal waters snorkel diving is very straightforward there, one can even just take his swim glasses and start exploring the places!

Water sports are also practiced there.

"Good fish, nice people"

As in all small cities around Portugal people tend to be very warm (off course during high season sometimes they just are stressed with so many people there) and one can find very good fishes to eat there. As elsewhere in Portugal Codfish is the most desired dish by the tourists.

The city is very nice, with some churches, fortresses and historical places to see.
