Below the stairs to the Cathedral and the Moorish castle you find this nice reaturant. You can sit outside under the trees and wonderful panoramic views or inside in a great atmosphere .
Favorite Dish: We had Olives with sardines paste,bread and butter and of course a good red wine ;-)
This was a good choice for a little break in the shadow of the trees.

This restaurant had a much more intimate air than did our choice of the previous evening. The muted lighting with very nice background music and locals chatting away at some of the other tables made for a relaxed place to finish off our day! Once again, we were well looked after by the owner as he explained our possible choices on the menu. This restaurant had been recommended to us by a very pleasant young man, Bruno, who was running the local free internet cafe. We had stumbled upon this on our first night in Aljezur and were very pleased to get caught up on both the world and VT news for the first time since leaving Canada! The funny thing was, Bruno strolled into the restaurant to talk to the owner the evening we were there dining!
Favorite Dish: Sue ended up trying a very flavourful local Cod and rice dish served in a bowl while I had the more conventional grilled chicken pieces with french fries, lettuce and shredded carrots. The total cost including our drinks was E23 (US$30)

On our descent from Mount Foia at about 5 PM, we decided to stop at one of the many restaurants that we noticed alongside the road as we had driven up. At the 800-m level, we pulled off onto a treed road that looked promising and it soon led to a parking lot beside a large white-washed building. There were no other cars there or anyone to be seen. Not to worry, I wandered in the front door and soon saw a lady working in the kitchen. Once she noticed me I mentioned that we would like to have a beer and a vinho verde. No problem, she led us through the building and out to a very nice patio at the back where we waited while she went off to see to our request.
Favorite Dish: It turned out that we had stumbled onto a former hunting lodge built for the Portugese Royal Family, located among the pine trees in the cool mountain air, not far from Monchique. This restaurant/hotel has a swimming pool, 5 guest rooms and an apartment and also caters to groups of up to 500 people. It was great sitting there admiring the views amid the shrubbery and flowers surrounding the patio. A short time later, a Swiss/Dutch couple arrived and we had a good old chat with them over the next hour. They mentioned that the restaurant has a set menu when you come to eat. You do not have a choice in your selection but their meals are famous for their authenticity to local recipes dating from the 1500s. These meals are not cheap!

At the end of our second day in Aljezur we were ready for a solid meal after our drive south to Cape St. Vincent, Portimao, our southern beach, Monchique and finally Mt. Foia! We cruised around checking places out and eventually pulled onto a street that ran beside this restaurant. However, it was a one-way street that very quickly took us on past the restaurant and into the old section of Aljezur. Before we knew it, were were going up very steep and narrow cobbled streets that seemed to be turning into a maze with no escape! I was thankful for the tiny size of our Fiat Punto before we were done - we eventually came out the other side of town very high up, emerging at the Moorish castle ruins overlooking the town! Luckily we had visited there the day before so knew where we were and how to get back to town. On the next pass we pulled into the restaurant parking lot across the little brook and beside the supermarket!

We were recommended this restaurant by the Villa owners. It was a wonderful restaurant, not particularly cheap but great food & a lovely atmosphere. We came here New Years Eve & saw the New Year in here, Great fun! We then returned again the following week.
Apparently Cliff Richard eats here! Well my mother was impressed even if you are not (~_~)

This restaurant is good mainly because of its location, not easy to get too, if you hate uphill walking! It is located at (almost) the top of the cliff! Next to Church of Santana. But it offers great views (front page Beach photo taken here :P) and the food is offered at excellent value! 5Euro for a plate of grilled sardines, and same for a plate of Chicken Piri Piri, the hottest piri dish I've tasted in the Algarve!
Favorite Dish: Chicken Piri Piri, cheap and the piri piri is a real challenge! I managed to down the whole plate without a tear! :P

Now I am not really a one for chinese food but my family are so fair do to the Grande murhala in Alvor because this beats them all.
Victors restaurant in Praia da rocha also is there at the top of my list too.
The staff here were very friendly and helpful they also knew how too keep the kids amused when they started to get tired (or was it the other way around? I will never know)
We actually ordered a take away by phone one night and they remembered who I was and what meal I ordered.You can sit outside on a large upstairs patio and watch the crowd below you passing by
Favorite Dish: At the Grande Murhala I usually started with the Hot sour soup then either a beef or pork curry with superb light egg fried rice.My daughter enjoyed the beef hot pot and my four year old son the CHIPS!!!and of course the ice cream

Inside or out ,this pizzaria is situated on a shopping street where you can (as we did)sit outside in a reasonably quiet location an watch as the locals go about their day to day business also watch the tourists adding their charm to this place.
Favorite Dish: Here I had a mixed salad to start,then a seafood pizza to follow .My friend had prawn coctail and spaghetti bolongaise.There was also a childrens menu to satisfy my little ones
