Only steps away from your Luxury Algarve Villa
You’ve booked your holiday to southern Portugal and can’t wait to truly relax in a luxury villa with sweeping ocean views. Though the Algarve is known for its beaches, water sports, and things to do for all ages and tastes, there’s just one thing you haven’t delved into yet. What to eat? Where to eat? And where to find the best seafood near your luxury Lagos villa? To ensure you taste the best of what southern Portugal has to offer, we have put together a guide, so read on to ensure you don’t miss out!
Seafood in the Algarve: a must for any visitor
The long and varied coastline of the Algarve makes it an ideal ecosystem for a wide range of seafood. You will find the freshest fish along with some more unusual sea life species you may not have had the chance to taste previously. From goose barnacles to wedge clams (called condelipas in Lagos after the Count of Lippe who discovered them on Meia Praia beach), The age-old fishing tradition of Lagos ensures that whatever you order is as fresh as it can be. Other local specialities include sea urchins, limpets, mussels, oysters, and European locust lobsters served in various ways, each promising to delight more than the last.
Where to eat in Lagos
Portugal is a destination of choice for food lovers, and once you touch down in the Algarve, you’re sure to see why. Though it’s not easy to pick the best seafood restaurants in Lagos, we do have a few suggestions.
Dubbed the “perfect fusion of land and sea”, Camilo restaurant is our first suggestion. Perched above Camilo beach, a walk across the cliffs from LUX MARE, it provides fantastic views along with a prime selection of fresh seafood. Not sure what to choose? Ask the knowledgeable staff who are sure to advise you and ensure you book a table in advance to avoid queues!
Next: a central Lagos option for a spot of good food while you’re out and about. Down-to-earth Cervejaria 2 Irmãos (in a new location now) promises a traditional Portuguese atmosphere along with some of the best of what the Atlantic has to offer. Pop in to sample the best of all things local.
O Perceve – named after local delicacy goose barnacles – is slightly off the beaten path. However, it is certainly worth the venture for gorgeously served platters of seafood alongside a wine list sure to impress.
