Food & Drink

View of the Restaurant Sardinha and the beach

Restaurante A Sardinha

Restaurante A Sardinha is a fantastic restaurant on the beach. We will reserve you a private table with a wonderful sea view for lunch. The staff is extremely helpful and will always give dish recommendations. The fish is their specialty, whole Sea Bass and Sea Bream are cooked to perfection and served at your table. Sardinha’s sardine plates are superb and make a great appetizer. The chicken is simple but moist. We personally enjoyed the Robalo (Sea Bass) and the garlic shrimp. The wine selection is excellent – you cannot beat a cold glass of wine or beer by the sea.

Preferred Partners 2

Evaristo

The Evaristo Restaurant complements a small natural cove of white sand. The fish and seafood always fresh grilled to perfection is their specialty. We love this restaurant as there is no menu – you just walk in and ask for fresh fish, steamed clams, tiger shrimp, scarlet shrimp, Squid Evaristo and lobster from the coast. Everything is fresh and prepared to perfection. We will reserve your seaside table and you will enjoy the excellent quality and freshness of their plate suggestions.

Borda do Cais

Borda do Cais restaurant is situated in the picturesque Village of Ferragudo, right next to the Arade River with splendid views of the city of Portimão, the Portimão Castle, and the Serra de Monchique. We will reserve your water taxi and a beachside table at the restaurant, and you will enjoy the splendid view of the region and the local traditional fish dishes roasted over coal. We enjoyed the Cataplana de Marisco, a variety of seafood prepared with the chef’s special touch, served in a historic copper cataplana. An excellent choice to share.

Sol e Mar

Sometimes you want to sit back and enjoy the sun with an extra glass of cold bubbly and a boatful of catered seafood. We will place the seafood order for you and you will enjoy the Sol e Mar quality and diversity, which ranges from clams to prawns, tiger shrimp to rock barnacles, spiny whelks to sole, crawfish rice to lobster rice, from the fantastic monkfish cataplanas with shellfish to octopus. We savored the À La Guilho Fried Prawns, Garlic Shrimp, and Crab Pâté, all served in a wooden boat.

Your Sushi Shop

Do you like Sushi? We do, and we recommend you have us cater your charter day with specially prepared Sushi dishes from Your Sushi Shop in Quarteira. This little establishment is full of deliciously creative sushi that is freshly prepared with your preferences in mind. The Sushi is prepared with vinegared rice, usually with some sugar and salt, accompanying a variety of ingredients, such as seafood, vegetables, and occasionally tropical fruits. The one key ingredient is the sushi rice, also referred to as shari, or sumeshi. Good seafood variety, good size portions and it is always fresh and well-prepared and is reasonably priced. Enjoy your day at sea and indulge in some tasty seafood sushi for lunch.

Drinks on the table with marina in the background

Atlantic Bar

Our partnership with the Atlantic Bar provides our charter guests with VIP access and drink discounts. The party does not need to stop when your charter is over, we will provide you with a VIP entrance card, good until 10 PM. This will get you to the front of the line and discounts on drinks. The Atlantic Bar is a first-class bar different from the rest of the bars on the marina, as you can sit and enjoy a drink with an amazing view, while listening to live music. Known to many as the Piano Bar, due to the white baby grand piano, the Atlantic Bar has become a vibrant place famous for fantastic live entertainment, DJs, Drag Queens, celebrity clients, signature cocktails, and much more.
