A selection of restaurants & bars around:
Praia Grande - Eduardo's restaurant & bar which is the closest to the apartment with a great sea view and great food. When walking towards the beach turn right and you'll find it up the hill on the left.
Sao Rafael Bar & Restaurant - Right on the beach and very convenient. The bar is probably the first you will find when you arrive and of course both restaurant & bar have great views. The restaurant is pricey though - as a general rule the closer you get to the beach the more expensive you'll find the food & drinks.
Luaù Restaurante - A beautifully converted cliff top villa, cascading waterfall and magnificent views. If you need a romantic meal then this is the place to go. You'll find it just off the main Albufeira road, turn right and go up the hill instead of left into Sao Rafael.
El Panchito - A mexican restaurant just 10 mins walk from the apartment - follow the road towards the marina and you'll find it on your right. The restaurant looks like a mexican hacienda with flowered walls, landscaped cacti and original earthenware displays. With a menu to match, this is a great place for a night out.
Aldar Moroccan Restaurant - The Aldar is situated at the Sheraton Algarve, near Albufeira. The hotel has gone to great lengths to create an authentic Moroccan ambience, from the décor through to traditionally dressed waiters and the presentation of the food.
La Cigale - Portuguese seafood restaurant in a beautiful setting, right on the beach of Olhos d Aqua.
Sr. Frango - Just 10 minutes drive away brings you to the area of Almancil, which is renowned for it's Peri-Peri Chicken. Sr Frango is regarded as one of the best restaurants here. If you like Nando's then definitely give this a try.
Ze do Peixe Assado - Simply the best place to eat fish, they literally keep bringing deliciously different plates of fish until you can eat no more !
Nosolo Italia - At the Marina you'll find some of the best ice cream ever at Nosolo Italia. Big recommendation is to try one of their Crepe's.
Scooby's Pool Bar - An english bar with very friendly service, sky tv and pools for the kids and adults. Just a 10 min walk from the apartment - check the Gale map for directions.
