Top 10 Restaurants in Algarve

Top 10 Restaurants in Algarve

Here in the Algarve, you have to be careful when it comes to choose your restaurant…at our B&B in Algarve Gato Preto de Silves, this is what we use to tell our guests, having the big responsibility to suggest only the best restaurants in algarve, considering the wide choice and many tourist traps.

It’s not so easy to find good quality ingredients, especially the fish during the high season, due to the huge demand not affordable by the fish market without reoccurring to freezed fish. So, our independent advice is to avoid all the beach restaurants (except o Rei das Praias), or the ones in Albufeira Marina and Villamoura marina, too much touristic and full of tourists traps.

By now, the following 10 are the best restaurants we experienced in Algarve in the last 5 years:

Marisqueira Rui, Silves 
Genuine article as regards fish and seafood. “Arroz de Marisco” is very good, but also the Mixed Sea Food (Crab, lobster or spiny lobster, oysters, sea snails, clams, boiled shrimp, grilled medium prawns) is worth the price of dining out.

A weekly changing Menu and a great creativity combined with genuine products.
