Cafes / Restaurants for Lunch near Riu Palace Algarve

Hi All,

My wife and I are thinking of a week holiday in Algarve (May) -- we have never been before --- will be staying at Riu Palace Algarve on Half Board Basis. I would like some information for cafes or restaurants near by that we can walk 10 - 15 minutes for lunch & snack ? If we so decide to have some lunch snack in the Riu Hotel any idea how much does it cost for sandwich, Pizza, Soft drinks & Juices ? Thank you very much for your help -- any information would be very helpful.

There are several places within 10 minutes walk, even less, all the way down the hill to the beach.

I can't advise about prices at the Rui as I've not stayed there but there are lots of restaurants and cafes leading down to the beach within a 10 minute walk. Pinocchios is cheap and cheerful but good and they vary in price to more expensive restaurants. Fratellis pizza's are really good and not that expensive, you can see reviews of that restaurant on Tripadvisor. Hope you have a good holiday, Olhos d'agua is a lovely resort.

Hi there

Stayed at the Riu Palace at the end of May this year.

You can buy lunch, as the hotel has a small restaurant overlooking the pool. A toastie and chips is about 5 euros but the rest of the menu is more substansive fare such as fish and meats. Sorry no pizzas or sandwiches here. There is another small bar on the other side of the pool that sells ice creams and drinks. Soft drinks, coffees and small beers cost around 2-2.50 euros.

As already reported, Pinocchios is about a 10 mins stroll away and does sandwiches, pizza, toasties etc for about 2-3 euros (very nice too). There are also one or two more cafes in this area that offer the same sort of menu.

We had a great time and hope you do too!!!

Regards

Have a look at http://www.freemaps.net/maps/newtown2.pdf at the bottom of the page it will show you Olhos d Agua resort and will give you numbers appertaining to what is on the map. Try Jollies, its a walk though from Rui hotel, next to the Velamar hotel. but hospitality for customers is wonderful, they will make you so welcome.
