The restaurant D. Henrique was one of the places we visited in Lagos,a nd it was recommended by the Michelin Guide. The place is cozy and tastefully decorated, with many decorative motifs, such as the crib or pine, and it reminded us that Christmas was coming. We decided on a specialty of the house called Cataplana de Peixe, which was delicious, and almond pie dessert and lemon sorbet, all accompanied by wine and soft drinks, coffee, etc. for 2 people the bill was not over 40 euros, so I recommend it because the price / quality is excellent.
It was a long journey from Madrid to rest at the Ibis Setubal. We wanted to find something to eat, and we were quite clear that we wanted fish, and fresh! That was the challenge. So I opened Minube and we crossed our fingers that I would be able to solve the problem. There he was, with four or five super-positive comments of other consumers ve have eaten there before. Really great. Fresh fish and seafood, good portions served at a fair price. Before you even order anything they bring you some bowls of shrimp, octopus with vinaigrette and eggs with vinaigrette. The house wine was very good. The super friendly waiter explained each dish to us and challenged our culinary knowledge. We ate and drank for just under € 20 per head. We had food left over. For starters we had grilled sardines: 10 spectacular sardines for just € 9.5, then for the second course: Setubalense Caldeirada at € 28: it's like a zarzuela, really delicious seafood. And finally also for two: Rice Garoupa death was also € 28. It was a pity that they had ran out of chocolate mousse. Today I will go back and try the muscle, but I also want to try the fried choco Setubalense. You must go, you will not regret it.
We discovered this restaurant by accident. We wanted a place to eat with our nieces after visiting the "Mosteiro dos Jeronimos", before we went through the door, we looked in the window and liked it. We went and had no regrets, and have been back many times. Of course, it is always full and you should make a reservation even only half an hour before. It serves typical Portuguese food, homemade, simple and well cooked. I would recommend the fish, very fresh, with cod in the first place. A bottle of chilled "vinho verde" (the Muralhas is very good) to accompany the food, a homemade dessert and coffee for those ve only know how to be like the Portuguese and bon appétit! They are nice, attentive and are always in a good mood, which is appreciated. The menu has prices to fit any budget depending on the dish you want- no-one can say it's an expensive place. The portions are huge, so the starters are almost too much. Actually not a bad idea to tell the waiter that you don't want them even before sitting down to eat: a plate of ham and one of cheese cost € 11.00. It's not nonsense. If you can make room for more food, Caseiro is practically in front of the famous "Casa dos Pastéis de Belém". It's open from 12:00 to 15:00 and 19:00 to 22:00 and it's closed Sundays and August.
This restaurant has a lovely, but tiny terrace and it's quite pleasant. The staff is friendly and they know how to treat their guests right. Extensive menu, with a sizable and unique wine list. Generous portions, good cod. But the price is high for it being in Portugal (25 euros per person). Something I couldn't look past was that no credit cards are accepted, only cash. Unforgivable!
The restaurant is great, we found it on Minube and ate there every day. The quality is exceptional and the prices are cheap. We were treated like kings the minute we walked in. They speak Spanish and English, and have menus in German and other languages. The fried choquiños al Antoniu's are a gastronomic delight, for example. They serve fresh fish and meat too, which in this area is not very common. The truth is that I thank Minube for finding it. Every night the waiter regaled us with a shot of liquor or with an unexpected dessert. Treatment, service and meal - all a 10.
I am looking forward to going back... The beach bars of Praia da Rocha are new, very modern, all the same. The breathtaking views, a calm sea. The fried sardines, Seville-style or Portuguese-style squid, which are delicious, clams ... And as in Portugal, golden cod ... All very delicious and generously accompanied by fries or salad. Nothing taste better at the coast sea than fresh sea food.
If you don´t want to spend 10€, don´t eat in the town square of Guimarao. If you walk up toward the castle, there´s a cozy little corner restaurant that serves homemade soup, an entree and a drink for 5€. If you want dessert too, it´s 1.50€ but definitely worth it.
One of the best and greatest restaurants I discovered in Lagos, in fact, we actually went two or three times during my stay in the Algarve, and I must say it was always full of people, especially English because they were the most common tourists in the area. The restaurant Adega de Marina is located on the main avenue of the promenade which is close to the historic center of the city. In addition to the variety of meat and fish dishes, another of its main attractions is the speed that they serve you despite how many people who go there for lunch or even dinner. And what about prices? Without ordering dessert, the bill did not exceed €30 for two people. A restaurant that I recommend if you visit Lagos in the Algarve.
This restaurant is a bit difficult to find if you are not familiar with the area, it is in a lovely setting surrounded by mountains, vineyards and nature and I found it by asking a native Portuguese person, which we were grateful for, because we loved it. The restaurant is about 6 km from Melgaco and has been serving customers mostly Portuguese, for over 36 years, and what attracts you is its food, its environment and their great prices. The house specialty is the Portuguese stew, very similar to ours but without chickpeas, cod and kid. It has a big selection of homemade desserts traditional of the region and its wine cellar was awarded for their high quality of Albariño wines. A recommended place if you appreciate Portuguese food, wines and are in this area of northern Portugal. So cheap!
The Restaurante Don Petiscohe has a window on the edge of the Guadiana in Vila Real de Sto. Antonio. It's an excellent place to enjoy fresh fish overlooking the river. From its terrace, right on the river, enjoy a nice long evening thanks to the menu they offer, the friendliness of its staff and the privileged location. There aren't always tables so it's advisable to make a reservation or arrive early. Definitely worth it.
Environment is very nice, the restaurant is NOT a typical house of the area and, in fact, it is ugly and huge ... but inside is better. We went with a baby carriage and there were two attached tables. We ordered a seafood rice for 40 € for two of the 3 and ate leftovers. This place wasn´t bad.
The quality here is excellent, as are the prices. I recommend the Escondidinho cod and the grilled octopus. It is advisable to go early, as it fills up quickly. No reservations. You take a number when you get there if the dining room has already filled up.
It's a large place, with an endless number of tables, so it's not recommended if you're looking for peace and quiet. However, if you want to eat well in a nice place for cheap, this is the place. The grill is open so you can watch the chefs cooking the sardines or the meat. The service was excellent and fast. Approximate prices: 8 euros for a dozen sardines, the Grelhao cod (grilled) for 10 euros, both accompanied by boiled potatoes. In total, with dessert, about 30 euros for two. Definitely recommended.
It is a bar frequented by young people, university students and tourists. They say that the revolution started here. THe food is delicious and at a good price. Also it is a place to go for some beers. It has a terrace that is closed where you can eat. They let us stay there with our dogs. The waiters are very attentive.
Taking your recommendation I went to the O Patio for lunch after a morning at the Algar Seco. Not bad at all though the cilantro rice with seafood killed me. I'm sorry but I hate it! The service was okay but what I did like was the rice for one person . The portion was enough for two people. The location was charming but I wouldn´t come back. It was okay to eat outside in fresh air. It left me with an indecisive feeling. Ok for one time.
When we arrived in Albufeira, the first problem we encountered was with the parking lot, there wasn't a single place available. On top of that it was raining cats and dogs, so we had to find somewhere dry. We parked in the first spot we could find and were lucky that after walking just a few meters we come face to face with the restaurant we were looking for. It's modest, but very cozy with great home cooked food, with seating for about 30. The décor was simple and definitely the best part was the friendliness of the waitress, ve greeted the clientele with great familiarity, everyone was Portuguese except us. They made a huge effort to speak to us in Spanish, and were very friendly and helpful. We chose a fixed menu for 9 euros a plate with sausage, bacon, eggs and potatoes, very light hehe, but the truth is it was a perfect meal for the freezing cold outside. You could also choose dishes a la cart from the menu, so we opted for lamb chops with salad, and almond cake for dessert. I definitely recommend this place, you can eat well for a good price.
This is the best restaurant in Algarve. This is a place that has a variety of dishes that are both unique and exclusive. At night this restaurant becomes a great club in front of a spectacular beach. Restaurant prices are high and reserves need to eat, but worth going to the best corner of Portimão. Caniço!
