Almost everywhere that caters for tourists will offer pizza, chicken and chips etc. They have to. English sausages are not common however, any sausage is more likely to be a German style hot dog sausage.

On the other pages of the menu will more fishy offerings and Portuguese things involving such radical ingredients as potatoes, cabbage, leeks, onions, green beans, pork, beef, lamb etc.

I cannot recommend anywhere in particular, but there are several places along the seafront road near the fishing boats.

Take her for a chicken piri-piri to start with. (grilled chicken) You will probably get the piri-piri (hot) at the side so she can choose.

Porco preto (black porc) is also a dish she may enjoy.

If she eats fish, you could get some nice grilled piece of salmon, it's not so scary as sardines :)

Our 'pastel de nata' pastries go well with anyone who tries them.

You could try the following restaurant:http://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/Restaurant_Review-g189113-d3330633-Reviews-A_Tasca-Armacao_de_Pera_Faro_District_Algarve.html

The owner will help you by explaining what the food is about.

Don't worry, we were there last year and most restaurants do traditional Portuguese food including lots of fresh fish and also a kids menu with pizza, chips, burgers and nuggets. They are not always English style however, but our slightly fussy 7 year old enjoyed the spaghetti bolognese and pizza in most places. She did not starve and there are always the many delicious ice cream parlours along the promenade!!
