Casa Chico Zé

Not very often do we list a restaurant or business that does not have a website. However this IS one of those exceptions.

Situated on the EN125 between Odiáxere and Lagos on the south site of the road and at the entrance to the village of Torre. GPS 37.135637 N, -8.663403 W

Always busy, though you are unlikely to be kept waiting for too long, with meat and fish on offer, mostly cooked on a BBQ.  A group of four could pay just over €50!

Hotel Algarve Casino

Hotel Algarve and Casino

Situated in Praia da Rocha, the Hotel Algarve Casino combines comfort and refinement, entertainment and relaxation, leisure and business in a unique way.

With an enticing view of the beach and the sea, the five-star hotel provides unforgettable holidays for the whole family, with the guarantee of excellent service, comfort and quality.

The Casino, next to the hotel, complements what the Hotel Algarve Casino has to offer, inviting to moments of pure fun with evening entertainment, fantastic shows, musical evenings, restaurants, bars and modern games rooms.

The Tivoli Marina Hotel, Praia da Rocha

The Tivoli Marina Hotel

This is one 4 star resort which you'll want to come back to again and again. Here, just one visit is not enough and a weekend would be simply too short. Family holidays can start the morning with a great breakfast while you enjoy the view of the marina. Then, with all the time in the world, either stroll down or take a ride in the Tivoli Buggy to the long white sands of Praia da Rocha. Stores, restaurants and night life are all right next to the hotel. Water sports, golf and activities for children are just some of the options available. If you are planning for a special event, they have ample sized rooms for parties, meetings, weddings and banquets that are totally adaptable to your needs.

A Eira do Mel, Sagres

It’s worth driving 10km further north to Vila do Bispo to enjoy the fine foods of chef José Pinheiro at this charming, Michelin -listed restaurant. The meat leans towards the Algarvian; the seafood has a more contemporary touch. Think rabbit in red-wine sauce, octopus cataplana with sweet potatoes (€35 for two people), curried Atlantic wild shrimps (€18) and javali (€17). Mouthwatering stuff.

Closed on Sundays.

For more information visit their web site.

A pretty web site but currently (Oct '13) only available in Portuguese.

Pestana Hotel Group

This is possibly the best of the all-Portugal hotel groups.

Around Portimão it is worth considering the Dom Jõao II or the Alvor Praia.

These are the Pousada de Sagres, Infante (designated as Nature), the Pousada de Faro, Palácio de Estoi (designated as Historic Design) and the Pousada de Tavira, Convento da Graça (designated as Historic).
