Top 10 restaurants in Algarve, Portugal

December 13, 2017 Nicolette Lion

The Algarve's sunny shores offer perfect escapes for all types, from those seeking the hot nightlife of flashy, energetic Lagos to those desiring secluded stays in rambling Sagres. Portugal's most southerly region offers historical attractions in former Moorish capital Silves and fascinating Tavira, great golf, fabulous beaches from Praia da Luz to Armacao de Pera, thermal springs at Caldas de Monchique, and miles of limestone caves and grottoes, cliffs and bays along its rugged coastline.

Restaurante Dom Carlos

Reviewed By nides77 - Sheffield England

Amazing 5 course dinner experience costing 130 euros with drinks included for 2 diners. Salmon layered with fresh prawn in filo pastry; spiced pumpkin soup with bursts of flavour; succulent fish; chicken with mozzarella and finally apple crumble tart- all delicious. Cosy living room setting with attentive hosts. Lovely evening.

Thank you to waiter Rashid for his great sense of humour, and the lovely Dutch owners for the stunning food and service. Yes it is a little expensive but it is worth it.
This is definitely the place to impress a first date, or even the lady I love or on your own or even better with clients \ guests \ family. Heck just go there!

The Cockerel Country Kitchen

Reviewed By AlexJoan - Glasgow

First visit to the restaurant and the food and service wes excellent . I would recommend you book to save disappointment . The restaurant is quite small and packed out with people waiting for tables . Steak pie and the baby back ribs was fantastic but portions could have been smaller with no complaints .

Figueiral

A family restaurant that for more than 30 years is concerned with the excellence of its meats and fish freshness. Enjoy a drink in our bars and enjoy a memorable experience.<br>Only dinner and closed every Sunday.

Reviewed By Bearair52 - Dundee, United Kingdom

Excellent meal with friendly service. Dropped by on an out- of- season Friday night, and probably should have booked. Interesting menu and imaginatively executed. I had the prawn and clam starter with a cheese topping, followed by flambe, Sea Bream. Others in our party had the Chateaubriand, Toledos of beef and Chicken - the beef dishes came with their own hot stone - allowing cooking to taste and offered with a range of flavoured sauces.
Puddings were also excellent, though I asked for a cheese board - not offered on the menu - which did not seem to cause the kitchen any problems. Again very good. Would highly recommend a visit !

They have refurbished and it looks really nice. Food is as good as ever and we visit regularly. It is difficult to get a table in the summer so go early!! You can't book so first come first served. There is a nice bar over the road where you can wait for a table if necessary.

Closed for holiday until mid january

Reviewed By SantaFeNomad - Santa Fe

We agree the food and service were excellent. I had the filet steak and it was cooked perfectly and both flavorful and tender. I was thinking I couldn’t order steaks here as the few I did on this trip were not as good as we get in the States, but this was and the sauce was perfect. A glass of the house wine was very good. Evening started with an amuse-bouche of tempura shrimp with chili sauce. Yum.
The decor is dated in a “beachy” pastel way but not offensive. Nice views and light and airy atmosphere. Servers professional and courteous. Everything you’d expect with fine dining except the bill was quite reasonable. I think you’ll really like it.

Was in Carvoeiro for a week and had ice cream every day from this fab shop. The staff were so friendly and knowledgeable about the different flavours and so helpful. Tried a different flavour every day and was never disappointed. Diet now!!
