As you drive down to the little fishing village of Praia de Benagil...the O Algar is on the side of a hill on your left. This is a family run restaurant with a very friendly atmosphere and service.

Visited during our late summer holiday. The views are special and the food was very nice. We also found the bill to be very reasonable.

Family run restaurant with the best seafood you can get in the area. Red snapper, sole and dorade were absolutely fabulous. Wonderful staff, great view. Highly recommended.

The service was excellent, the fish selection was fresh and grilled to perfection! The water views were a nice touch to our evening meal.
