"Try my favourite restaurant in..." Portugal Favorite Tip by HowardMurphy

Portugal General: 321 reviews and 294 photos

Favorite thing: Try my favourite restaurant in Sagres,Algarve.It is the 'Resaurante Carlos' where there is always a warm welcome with wonderful food and friendly staff. It is owned by Carlos, his wife and son and it has a real family atmosphere. I have so many favourite dishes from suckling pig to shrimps that you must visit and try the menu for yourself.
Carlos also has a shop selling a wide variety of good quality wine and gifts.

There are so many good restaurants in Sagres you can make it an interesting part of your holiday by trying a different one each day until you find your favourites. Notice I write favourites - the choice may depend on the food, staff, owners, welcome or those you cross off the list if they pad the bill by charging for what should be part of the service i.e. finger bowls. It is not so much the cost as a feeling of milking the visitor for what they can get.

You will find the Atlantico Restaurant is very good with a warm welcome from Tony, Lesley and their son Phillip.
Lesley is British and she serves one of my favourite dishes-Roast Leg of Lamb. They have a wide choice of dishes to suit everybody, always nicely cooked and served.To the delight of the ladies, all this good food and service is enhanced, by the sight of Phillip's hairy legs.

Fondest memory: The people of Sagres make you welcome and are very friendly.
For snacks and mouth-watering cakes visit the charming Marcella at Salao de Cha at Pinoquio’.
For a good place to stay with friendly warm-hearted staff, Hotel Da Baleeira is the one and only place to go.

What makes Sagres so special?
The friendliness, the clean air, the feeling of security is what makes Sagres so special.
