Restaurant Recommedations


We are visiting Albufeira in August and are staying in private appartments opposite the Boa Vista Hotel. Could anyone please recommend a few good restaurants around that area. I have checked the resaurant reviews on this site but am not sure how authentic and genuine they are.

Many Thanks.

Casa da fonte on the steps over the tunnel to the beach, family run, lovely courtyard set under a lemon tree.

If you like Indian food, Saffron is just down the hill from your apartment. We had a superb meal there recently, and there's a sea view.

Otherwise, just head down to the Old Town where you'll find lots of great places to eat, from Casa da Fonte and Tres Coroas to Cabana Fresca and many more.

Top 100 restaurants (TA) listed at www.albufeiraguide.yolasite.com/ by area ..

Down the hill past the Old Cemetary and cross the road to harbour esplanade ... Castelo do Mar is 200 yards down on your right at the Marina viewpoint .... down to the left past Rossio viewpoint, there are several restaurants along the beach esplanade towards the steps as recommended above. Four or five places from there up Rua 5 October ... and more up towards the main church, Igreja Matriz. There is also a lane beside the Miradouro viewpoint ( next to Boavista) which comes out down the steps at Rocamar Hotel and Peneco beach lift .. but fairly steep.

A few of my favs are in no order

Manuel dos frangos- piri piri chicken at its best top of the strip

Casa da avo- bottom of the hill towards old town, great authentic portugese food

O lusitanos- just up from the worms island again great portugese food

Clay oven, lovely indian food between bullring and worms island

I could go on and on but won't as I don't want to bore you

Many thanks for your kind replies. My mother and father are accompanying my wife and I this summer. We are hoping to bring them to a few of the better restaurants in Albufeira. We are just hoping for good food and a nice experience. It doesnt have to be upmarket, as long as its good thats all that matters.

Albufeira is a great place to visit. Theres lots of lovely restaurants serving delicious food. Just take a leisurely stroll around the Old Town, Old Town Square and some of the back streets and you will be spoiled for choice. I am sure your wife and mother will just love people watching ! Hope you all have a great time.
