    Albufeira Restaurants

    I recently visited the Algarve for the simply wonderful Euromeet 2016 so wonderfully organised by my dear friend Claus in Albufeira and a few other places in the region. VT member Ravenswing aka Lynne and I had vaguely planned to travel after the Euromeet but we liked it so much we stayed on a bit. One of the

  • The Garden

    Lagos Restaurants

    As part of our day trip to Lagos our meeting organiser, Claus (cachaseiro) had arranged for us to have lunch in the pretty courtyard of this aptly-named restaurant. The speciality here is BBQ, cooked on the large grill at one side of the garden, and our set meal included a choice of dishes from here, preceded with a selection of starters that were...

  • Faz Gostos

    4 out of 5 stars

    Faro Restaurants

    I came to this restaurant in the old town with seven VT friends, having spotted it earlier in the day and liked the sound of the menu. But we should maybe have realised what we could expect from our evening here by our reception which, while friendly and helpful, was a bit chaotic. The process of sorting out two tables for four each that we could...

  • Ex Libris Gourmet

    Tavira Restaurants

    I have visited Portugal 9 times and have always been treated in a warm and friendly manner – until I came inside this business. I an another VT member decided to visit the historic and tourist city of Tavira, and further explore the tourist area around the ‘Roman Bridge’. We were looking for a nice place to have lunch. The outside of Ex Libris...

  • Indian curry house

    Sagres Restaurants

    For an excellent indian meal with fantastic service this restaurant cant be beaten. Food was delicious and the service was great. Prices were not expensive. The complimentary drink after the meal was the end of a great night. We have now visited the restaurant on 2 occasions during our holiday and each time was great.

  • Fisherman's Tavern - Taberna do Pescador

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Albufeira Restaurants

    Whilst in Albufeira I had fallen victim to a bit of a stomach bug although I stress that it is nothing to do with the quality of the food served in that lovely town, it is an ongoing problem. The reader, however, is not here to read about my gastro-intenstinal problems but to read a restaurant review. I mention it merely as background information...

    Albufeira Restaurants

    Given the common language I suppose it should be no surprise that there are apparently quite a few Brazilians in Albufeira and neither should it be any surprise to regular readers of my pages that I am writing a tip here about a completely unpretentious restaurant well off the normal tourist beat in the town but for those who may have come upon...

  • McAli's Bar & Restaurant

    4 out of 5 stars

    Albufeira Restaurants

    I realise that this may seem like an odd title for resturant tip but there really does seem to be some confusion over this. Despite massive advertising banners on both sides of the building calling it McAli's (in itself bit of an odd name for Portuguese restaurant) the premises also seems to be widely known as Jojo's bar as well and this was...

  • Cervejaria Granfinus

    2.5 out of 5 stars

    Albufeira Restaurants

    The Granfinus is set right n the heat of Albufeira's old town, with entrances from the pedestrianised Avenida do 25 Abril and from Rua Candido do Reis (Albufeira's 'bar street'). It's a big pub/bar with a restaurant and terrace as well as a largish outside seating area at street-level I'd just arrived in Albufeira and was very hungry. After a...

    Albufeira Restaurants

    On our last evening in Albufeira a group of us, six in total, decided to eat in the old town and to seek out a sea view. We followed the road along the coast and settled on the terrace of the O Penedo which overlooks the beach near the big elevator. Although there was a bit of a chilly breeze, once seated it was sufficiently sheltered for us to be...

  • Sir Harry's Bar

    2.5 out of 5 stars

    Albufeira Restaurants

    Sir Harry's proudly describes itself as 'amazingly like your English pub but with sun, glorious sun.' It's a very popular place and is always full of happy customers, so clearly, I'm in the minority as a dissenter. Dropped in to Sir Harry's on Monday afternoon, to have something cool and enjoy a chat and sit down with Hansi, Lori, Pieter and...

  • Rei Dos Mares

    Albufeira Restaurants

    Looking for a change one evening from the noise and bustle of "Bar Street" and its surroundings, we took the escalator up from the Largo 25 de Abril (in front of the Praça dos Pescadores) in search of a more peaceful spot in which to eat and drink. We strolled along the cliffs a short distance, finding that as this is a more residential area our...

  • Casa del Mar

    Albufeira Restaurants

    Casa del Mar is a nice restaurant in downtown Albufeira, right above the tunnel leading to the beach. It's pricier than most, but worth it - delicious food (seafood, of course!), great service (friendly waiters who speak several languages), and a view of the beach and ocean if you sit by the window. They have separate lunch and dinner menus (so...

  • Cafe Oceano

    Albufeira Restaurants

    Usually, I skip restaurants in first line of the beach; some of them sell views instead of food, some other include the "view tax" in the invoice. This time I accepted the risk, and choose a restaurant by the sea, in the old fisherman's beach. Well, the food was good and, if the "views tax" was included, it was not excessive,...

  • Pasteleria Barhon

    Albufeira Restaurants

    This cafe/pastelaria, with its rather garish yellow tables and chairs, was directly underneath my apartment block so it was the obvious place for me to have breakfast. I was out and about pretty early in the morning and quickly noticed that it was very popular with locals on their way to work. They walked down the escalators (not working at that...

  • Ricardo's

    Albufeira Restaurants

    If you want a change from Portuguese cooking and fancy some Italian food, Ricardo's is a good choice. A tall, narrow building, it has inside seating and a third floor terrace (no lift) with views of the beach and sea. A group of five of us secured a table there one evening and had an enjoyable meal at a very reasonable price. We shared some...

  • Burger Bar

    Albufeira Restaurants

    One night we had breakfast for dinner. Many restaurants offer this menu but we chose the BURGER BAR as the staff, especially Nadja, were super friendly and it is owned by Yadin (Shalom) daughter and family. They offer their breakfast special all day. For 3,95 Euros , you get one egg, a sausage, two strips of bacon, bean, a tomato slice and toast....

  • Casa Nova

    Albufeira Restaurants

    Casa Nova is just off the main square on Rua Joao Bailote. If you turn left coming out of Bar Street, keep to the left-hand side of the square and turn left again, Casa Nova is right there. Easy to find but just that little bit distant enough to eat in peace, free from blaring music. This was the first restaurant we ate in on the night we arrived...

  • Sapori di Gelato

    Albufeira Restaurants

    When I spotted a place selling Italian-style gelato on the main strip here, I had to try some, and fortunately VT friends Colin and Sonja were of the same mind. While you can buy simple cones to take away, there is also seating inside and on a terrace; prices there are higher but there are more options to choose from, including fancy cups etc. We...

  • Pampas Steakhouse

    Albufeira Restaurants

    Fernanda wanted to stay in the sun; I wanted the shade; hard situation until we saw Pampas esplanade. We sat at the edge of the shade and had a surprisingly good meal. I say "surprisingly" because, from outside, it seemed a fast food restaurant. Well... it isn't! Everything was perfect, and the price very acceptable for Albufeira...

    Albufeira Restaurants

    This restaurant is in the city centre not far from Albufeira main square. It was located just under Regina Apartments, so we decided to go there two times. I had grilled tuna steaks with french fries and they tasted so good!! My friends had some meats with eggs and potatos and they were not disappointed either. Suggstion: go there during week days...

    Albufeira Restaurants

    We were passing this restaurant and decided to stop for something to eat. The restaurant is down some steps and looks smart. The staff were friendly and the prices slightly above average. I had Portugese steak wich was very tender and was in a bowl and the scollop potatoes around the edge.

  • La Bodega

    Albufeira Restaurants

    The restaurant is in a tourist area with plenty of competition and often employs people to invite you in off the street as do many others. Don't be put-of - the food here is exceptionally good. We chose a fried prawns in garlic starter which was piping hot and delicious. Our main course was served quickly and professionally and was exactly as...

  • Fernando

    Albufeira Restaurants

    All esplanades in Albufeira are full, except Fernando's. Why? Because it's more expensive than its neighbors. It tries to justify the difference with a better menu and service, and honestly, it is somewhat different. Better? Well... it depends. I was tired of eating fish, and decided to taste one of my favorite dishes - pork with clams,...

    Nice little place round the corner from our hotel where we ate on our first night. The place was quiet when we arrived but soon got busy. I can't remember exactly what we had but do remember that we left full up and happy. Not the cheapest place in town but if you want cheap and chips then you can find that anywhere. We are going back to the same...

    Albufeira Restaurants

    Cantinho dos Estudiantes is more a cafe than a restaurant. It was a convenient place for me to have breakfast or dinner, because my room was some meters far from this cafe. The menu at Cantinho dos Estudiantes includes pancakes, crepes, salads, hamburgers; American, English and French breakfasts. The first time I went there I had a pancake with...

    Many of Portugals lovely pastries were invented by Nuns during the 18th century. As times were hard the nuns made and sold them as a means of supplementing their income.

    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...

As a result of this early encounter, we decided to keep...

    In Portugal the best drink of choice is wine. Red wine is the favorite (and of course Vinho do Porto has to be number one) but white wine is also popular. Drinking wine during a meal is very common in Portugal but it is also popular after the meal is finished and come to that before the meal as well. Actually the drinking is considered almost...

    If you're staying in Faro, I recommend Restaurante Faz Gostos, in the old part of the city.

    That's the only Restaurant in the capital recommended by the Michelin Guide. Delicious typical food!

    Check them out at www.fazgostos.com and thank me later! ;)
