What do we eat in the Algarve?

Explore the culinary specialties of the Algarve; Portuguese cuisine is as delicious as it is diverse! Tasting fresh local fish is always a great choice for travelers, and you can also try the fleur de sel from Castro Marim, the famous octopus from Tavira, shellfish from Formosa, or barnacles from Sagres. Several dishes make up the interesting Portuguese cuisine and gastronomy of Algarve’s restaurants, some of which have received multiple Michelin stars. Here are our 2 favorite dishes and where to taste them during your corporate retreat by the sea.

In the case of Grelhados, it’s not about a recipe itself but about the barbecue’s smell and taste given by the coals on which Southern Portuguese grill their fish. You can’t miss this aroma combined with the taste of the freshest fish! The Cataplana celebrates authenticity and sincerity. Generally, fish are the stars of this delicious dish, but there is also a mountain version. It is said that if the cataplana tastes extraordinary, it is the taste of the Algarve.

Experience the delicacy of the Algarve’s culinary specialties and uncover all the secrets of Portuguese gastronomy during your team retreat in Portugal. Be sure not to miss the Vista restaurant in Portimão, a landmark with Captain Carlos Fernandes, holder of a Michelin star. Ocean Restaurant with its two Michelin stars in Porches, Al Quimina in Albufeira, which also has two stars, Avenida Restaurante in Lagos, Restaurante Hexagone in Caboeiro, or Taverna Modesto in Faro are some of the other restaurants you must try with your colleagues.
