Algarve new Restaurants

With the arrival of the summer holidays and the warm and long days inviting for delicious outdoor meals, new restaurants emerge for lunch, dinner or a simple gourmet snack.

During the pandemic, the Algarve saw the emergence of new restaurants, which try to counteract current adversities. From the seafood of the Algarve coast to the flavours of the East, there is so much to taste in the Portuguese’s favourite summer destination. If you are in the Algarve or going there, take a look at some of the new spots.

Restaurant Al Sud

Chef Louis Anjos signs the menus of the new fine dining restaurant at Palmares Ocean Living & Golf Resort, in Lagos. Space invites you to enjoy various tasting moments, with the best that the region has to offer, especially the seafood diversity. Tuna with oysters from the Alvor river, oscietra caviar and granny apple, Iberian pork noodles with stew broth, Monchique corns and fine herbs, sea bass with rice from the Sado Valley region, mussels and saffron or Algarvian prawns with fatty bacon, are some of Al Sud’s proposals.

Restaurant Pier by the sea

The seafood restaurant and brewery owned by the chef César Lourenço left the Santa Eulália area, where it had been for three years, to settle right in the centre of Albufeira. Seafood continues to have the chef’s quality guarantee, who offers the Super Onda de Marisco boards as suggestions. Highlights include the seafood rice, but also the Tuna Prego in caco bread from Cais ao Mar, the loin Picapau and the Pata Negra ham, at the starters.

Seafood and appetizers are the star of this new space on Quarteira’s waterfront, with the beach right at your feet. On the terrace facing the sea, entertain yourself with barnacles, crab or cuttlefish roe, octopus salad and fish-egg salad. For full meals, Tico Tico Algarve has xerém clams, Octopus Pataniscas and Bitoque.

Golf Holidays Breaks in Algarve

The Algarve, being the most southern province of Portugal, offers a semi-tropical climate, a cold winter and hot, but very pleasant summers, providing conditions for fantastic golf breaks all year round. There are 39 Golf Courses in the Algarve from west to east and almost all of them offer several options for multiple games, “golf packages”, where the player gets advantageous discounts. We have the example of dynamic packages that start from 2 or 3 rounds and offer an additional discount, such as the Vilamoura golf courses or the Amendoeira Resort. Vilamoura also offers Taylor made packages on its 5 golf courses, the traditional Old Course, the emblematic Victoria golf course and the popular Pinhal, Millennium and Laguna golf courses owned by the Dom Pedro group and therefore the options are many and with different types of discounts. A Group of 8 or more golfers have a free round for 1 player. Golf professionals also benefit from amenities and special conditions.

Quinta do Lago also offers combinations of 3, 5 or more rounds on its three golf courses, Laranjal, Quinta do Lago South and North, offering one free player in 16 and special conditions for the golf professionals.

Vale do Lobo on the two golf courses, Ocean and Royal also offer 1 free player in 8, a package of 3 rounds with 1 free round, excellent for those who want to play more than one round of golf at Vale do Lobo golf courses in the centre of the Algarve.

For the best golf holiday, we at Tee Times Golf Agency have around 60 golf packages to choose from all golf courses in the Algarve.

The most important areas of the Algarve for your golf holidays are Vilamoura, Vale do Lobo, Quinta do Lago, Lagos, Portimao Carvoeiro and Tavira, all of them have a set of very important Golf Courses such as Palmares, Boavista and Espiche, in Lagos.

Portimao has the legendary Penina Golf Course designed by Sir Henry Cotton and the excellent Morgado and Alamos Golf Courses, set in a peaceful environment at the foot of the Monchique mountains. The Morgado golf course, more demanding, recently home of the Portuguese Open and the Alamos golf course shorter but very demanding golf course in the short game, very wavy greens. Two good options in the region. In Carvoeiro, we have the Vale da Pinta & Gramacho golf courses and in Albufeira, the Salgados golf course is a lot of fun and not too far to the north after the highway, golf players can find the amazing Amendoeira Resort, Faldo and O´Connor golf courses and the popular Silves golf course.

In the Tavira area, in the eastern part of the Algarve, we have the best golf course in Portugal, and one of the best in Europe, the Monte Rei North golf course with the signature of Jack Nicklaus.

A little further south two excellent golf courses, Quinta da Ria & Quinta de Cima, plus the Benamor and Castro Marim golf courses, both very popular and pleasant to play and a course designed by the legendary Severiano Ballesteros that is Quinta do Vale, complement the golf offer in Tavira which is quite comprehensive and suitable for all types of players and provide also some great golf holidays in that part of the Algarve.

Algarve Golf and Gastronomie at Rota do Petisco 2019

From April 24 to May 26, all the excuses are good to go to the Algarve. The tradition and richness of the Algarvian gastronomie with typical and genuine flavors are celebrated in the 9th edition of the “Rota do Petisco“, an event that, over four weeks, proposes a route for more than 250 of the best restaurants in the region, including in Lagos, Portimão, Silves, Faro and Tavira. A total of 303 restaurants and cafés from 12 counties, will be ready to welcome you with a tasty tapa, a glace of wine and enthusiasm.

To embark on this trip, participants must purchase a Passport (for sale at information points and participating restaurants), at a cost of € 1.50, which totally reverts for different local social projects. For each 12 stamps added in the Passport (for each 12 restaurants visited), the participants are still qualified for a set of prizes, to be drawn at the end of the event.
