Food & Drinks

Since the coastline of the Algarve is more than 200 km long, it is no surprise that seafood makes up the majority of the local cuisine. Make sure you try out various fish dishes – in the Algarve fish is prepared in every possible way imaginable. One of the most famous dishes is Bacalhau à Brás, made of shredded cod, fried potatoes, and onions, mixed with scrambled eggs. If you’re more of a sweet tooth, central Algarve has a few delicious options available. Carob is a secret ingredient of many desserts, such as Tarte Mista Algarvia (a flavourful pie with figs and almonds) or Tarte de Alfarroba (a carob cake with almonds that tastes like chocolate).
