Portugal’s rich gastronomic history and culture is, arguably, the most influential cuisine in the world today. In the 15th Century, Portuguese explorers traversed the globe and were introduced to flavours and spices from as diverse regions as South America, The Far East, India, and Africa.

After each trip, new and exciting foods were introduced to willing Portuguese cooks. Each new spice, herb, pepper, fruit, or other foodstuff enriched and expanded the nation’s larder and gave Portugal’s cuisine distinct flavours not found anywhere else on the continent.

About Us

The Algarve is family run; and that family has decades of experience running four restaurants, all situated in the world heritage site Sintra, near Lisbon. Our owner, Pedro Silva will greet you front of house. “I have grown up in restaurants, they are in my blood” says Pedro. “When diners eat their lunch in Portugal the main conversation is ‘what are we having for dinner!’

Menu

Portuguese food is Mediterranean cuisine at its best, and like the people, it’s warm, vibrant, spicy, and a little mysterious.
