Restaurants in the Algarve - our skippers' choice

Our local skippers have selected some of their favorite restaurants in the Algarve. We focus on the Western Algarve, in between Portimão and Lagos.

Restaurante Zé Morgadinho

Located in Alvor old town, this is the most genuine Algarve restaurant close to Portimão. The sea food here is amazing at a very reasonable price. There is a guy playing accordion on a chair with a glass of wine always by his side. Amazing food, great service. Make sure you start with the clams!
  • Address: Largo da Ribeira, 8500-018, Alvor

Caniço Restaurante Bar

This restaurant / bar is set within the cliffs of the beach of Prainha. There is an elevator that goes in through the rocks, kind of James Bondish… The view is amazing and the service is quite possibly the best we have experienced. In the summer months you should call ahead to book a table.

  • Address: Aldeamento da Praianha, Praia dos 3 Irmãos, 8500-072, Alvor

Tapa Latina – Portimão

If you want to try a few different local petiscos (tapas in Portuguese), this is the place to go. It is conveniently located just in front of our Sail Yacht Base, in the same parking lot. We recommend trying the octopus salad and the quiche accompanied by an ice cold beer. This place tends to get busy in the summer months.
  • Address: Largo do Dique 16
  • Telephone: +351 282 459 129

Adega da Marina – Lagos

This is a big fun loud restaurant, open until at least mid night making it a good place for sailors to enjoy a warm Portuguese meal after having arrived late in the Marina de Lagos. The food is good and affordable, however the service might be slower at times as they tend to a lot of guests.
  • Address: Av. dos Descobrimentos 35, 8600-315 Lagos, Portugal
  • Telephone: +351 282 764 284
