We had our best meals in Algarve at Chiccas. Unfortunately we only managed to eat there twice. So much exciting food to try. The salad comes with most meals and it is the best I ever had. Try the goatcheese with honey. You can get any wine just by the glass. The service was personal and very good. The restaurant... More

Can only give 5 dots but if there was ever an option for a 6th it would be today. This place is simply perfect. Lovely setting, fantastic food and great service. The menu is providing lots of options of local cuisine and the food is all homemade. We chose the king prawns with chilli sauce and the goats cheese with... More

We were welcomed at the door by a very boisterous Chicca. The restaurant is eclectic with wine and or port grates affixed to wall displaying various wines,ports oils and vinegars. The menu has options for everyone from vegetarian, vegan, gluten free and carnivore. The menu is a blackboard and is changing daily based upon what is in season. Everything is... More

We ended up here because we couldn't get into Ondaluz. But what a find ! We met the owner and this is fresh wholesome cooked food. We started with deep fried king prawns with sweet chilli sauce which was excellent. We both had chicken with garlic and lemon and my husband raved about it and I agree it was delicious.... More

Visiting the Algarve out of season, we struggled to find a ton of vegan options. The main place in Sagres where we were staying was closed and so was the famous vegetarian place in Lagos. One afternoon I went deep on research and found a blog mentioning Chiccas. It talked about this wonderful, passionate and enthusiastic lady who presented a... More

Really original and good menu. Not easy to find vegetarian options here in the Algarve, so we will definitely come back.The place was full on a Wednesday evening in February, which is a really good sign! I don't advise to go with small kids as it is a small place and the only corridor is used for service. Prices are... More

Fantastic organic menu and wonderful selection of various drinks. The only restaurant in my opinion, in the Algarve worth visiting repeatedly. Chicca is not holding back on portions neither on quality. She also has the best glutenfree bread I ever had, like little, mini loaves of goodness. Everything from starters through desserts are great! The only issue would be knowing... More
