Eating Out - Restaurantes, Tavernas, & Adegas
Dining out in Western Algarve: On this page we list the various cafes and restaurants currently operating in the region from Lagos to Sagres. As the area we cover continues to expand new restaurants are opening all the time so it's not a definitive list, but we have tried to visit as many as we can (we work so hard for you!) and make fair comments about them. A whole range of national and international cuisine is available, including curry houses if you absolutely must, but this is the Algarve so frankly you're better off trying the local dishes - especially the seafood!

A 'Churrasqueira' (or 'Churrasco') serves chicken and meat specialities.
A 'Marisqueira' is a specialist for seafood.
A 'Pastelaria' does cakes, desserts and sweet things.
A 'Gelataria' offers ice creams, sorbets and fresh fruit smoothies.
