In search of local recommendations!

Hi all! Hoping for some feedback from anyone who lives here!! Would love recommendations for local restaurants, bars or places to see - nothing fancy - just your favourite places to go that might not be listed on all the *must see lists! Thanks very much!!

100's of restaurants, bars and places of interest are reviewed on this site. Without knowing what you like, I suggest you read some reviews and see if any thing takes your fancy

And when are you coming? A lot of places don't open in winter.

Hi. I'm not a local but visited this week for a week and did a week last year. Three I would defiantly recommend are The Cockerel Country Kitchen (book one week in advance if possible), Stews and More (book 2 days before) and finally Eclipse Grill.

The last one is near the old town, Stews half way between old town and strip and Cockerel past the strip. All 3 really good prices, good portions and lovely friendly service.

For something to eat, I’d recommend a visit to the cafe/cantina in Pingo Doce supermarket. Watches roundabout ( Rotonda dos Rologios. Eat with the locals ) Not listed amongst the usual restaurants. Queue up for grilled fish, steak or chicken. Or choose something different from the varied menu. Good quality and surprisingly cheap.

Wonderful restaurant is Restaurante Dom Dinis (Diniz in reality) in Sesmarias, very close to Albufeira. Wonderful food and wines.

Agree Dom Dinis is worth the trip out of town! Booking advised!

DD - Great restaurant but not sure it comes under the 'nothing fancy' category? It's not cheap, especially when you add an evening taxi to the equation.

Uzonj, Il Cappuccino, Jorge, C19, the aforementioned Cockerel and Eclipse, all excellent value and very good food.
