  • ON THE PORT IN SAGRES

    Yes, this place is a little touristy and you could probably find a slightly cheaper restaurant. Having said that, A Tasca is still worth a visit and a good meal. It literally sits right on top of the port and you can enjoy a great meal on their large terrace looking out towards the ocean. They serve seafood caught by local fishing boats and it’s...

Although it was just before 5 PM, only the owner was there. He soon served us up a cold beer and a glass of white wine to bring us to our senses! As a result of this early encounter, we decided to keep...

  • A Royal Retreat

    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....
