Vila Joya Sea
Great for lunch & dinner.
If you're looking for high quality food and authentic gastronomic delights whilst enjoying stunning ocean views, this is the place for you to go! Vila Joy at Sea has the ambiance of an exclusive sophisticated beach bar and offers the perfect high end fine dining experience.
Zazu Beach Club & Boaty's Tapas Cafe
📍Praia da Luz
Great for dinner, lunch and sunset drinks.
You'll find these two unique culinary experiences on the beautiful bay of Praia da Luz. A perfect open-air location with stunning views of the Atlantic and the beautiful beach of Praia da Luz. ZaZu Beach Club occupies the first floor and rooftop and Boaty’s Tapas Café is located on the ground floor and also offers tables on the boulevard. Two options in just one place with different dining experiences but with equally beautiful views! I personally love going here after a long hike and kick back with a cold Vino Verde to watch the sunset.
Casa Velha Do Pescador
Great for dinner, lunch and drinks.
With its amazing view, cute interior and cozy ambiance, this is one of my favorite restaurants to go for dinner. It's located just outside of Carvoeiro near Praia do Benagil in the steep valley just a few meters from the famous Benagil cave. This restaurants serves a great selection of wines and local (sea) food which can be enjoyed overlooking the cute little bay of Praia do Benagil.
Rei das Praias
Great for sunset drinks, lunch and dinner.
If you love a good ocean view, this is THE place to go. Located just in between Carvoeiro and Ferragudo, you'll find the cute beach bar (and restaurant) of Rei das Praias. Unwind after a big hike or beach day on the roof terrace and enjoy a late lunch whilst overlooking the clear blue ocean and beautiful Algarvian cliffs. Rei das Praias serves excellent fresh (sea)food for lunch and dinner but is equally as perfect for enjoying a sunset cocktail. Enjoy!
Great for dinner.
If you're into seafood this is a must-visit in Sagres! The big terrace is perfect for enjoying the phenomenal views and fresh local Portuguese food on a hot summer night. The restaurant interior can also not be left unmentioned. The unique and cozy interior is decorated with walls made out of shells, glass and old bottles. Enjoy a good glass of wine overlooking the sea and enjoy local dishes caught freshly from the ocean.

O Stop is a cafe at the beautiful beach of Praia do vale de Centeanes, 5 minutes outside the town centre of Carvoeiro. The food here is simpel, traditional and Portuguese. Order a cold beer after a long hot summer day and enjoy the stunning view with your toes in the sand. 😉 One of the best things about this cafe is that the outdoor terrace is on the beach in the sand and sheltered from the wind.
On the beautiful beach of Praia Grande in Ferragudo, you'll find one of my favorite beach bars. This is the perfect place to go for a sunset drink followed by dinner with a beautiful view of the sandy bay and ocean. Enjoy a cocktail and (also vegetarian) sushi on the beach with your toes in the sand. This is the perfect place to kick back and hang out after a big surf day. I love that besides the tasty fresh fish, they also serve many veggie and vegan options. I recommend visiting here on weekends and enjoy the live music and chilled vibes. A must go-to restaurant in the Portimão area.
NoSoloÁgua Restaurant Portimão
Great for dinner, lunch and sunset drinks.
The NoSoloÁgua restaurant is located on the Marina of Praia da Rocha next to the NoSoloÁgua beach bar. This is a unique dining experience with paradise like vibes and a chilled beach atmosphere. Barefoot luxury as I like it to be! 😉
This slightly fancy restaurant is perfect for unwinding after a big sunny beach day. I personally love the live music nights the NoSoloÁgua restaurant. Enjoying live jazz and Bossa nova whilst enjoying a sunset drink and dinner overlooking the pools and ocean, doesn't get much better than this right?
The simplicity of traditional cuisine and freshly caught fish with one of the most beautiful views you will ever see in you live! Caniço is a restaurant situated in (yes, in!) the rocky cliff formations of one of my favorite beaches, Praia dos três Irmaos in Alvor. To get to this tiny beach restaurant you first have to take a beautiful and somewhat adventurous route trough narrow cliffs and beautiful rock formations. Don't miss out on this gem with phenomenal ocean views.
