Quarteira Restaurants, Bars & Cafés
Quarteira is a wonderful place to eat and drink, with a traditional Portuguese character and a lovely palm-lined promenade, where there are restaurants, bars and cafés galore and outside terraces that offer glorious beach views!
Quarteira is still very much an active fishing town so the freshest of fish and seafood is assured! Popular dishes include grilled sardines, "cataplanas", "caldeirada" (fish stew) and prawns! Being a traditional town and a popular resort with Portuguese holidaymakers, the prices of food and drink are still extremely reasonable, especially in the very local cafés and restaurants that you'll find tucked away down the little side streets.
There are also a host of different types of cuisine on offer in Quarteira, such as Italian, Chinese, Indian, French, Mediterranean and International, with many restaurants offering choices for vegetarians, vegans and gluten-free.
For a totally different dining experience, there is also neighbouring marina resort Vilamoura, which is just a short walk away! With glamorous restaurants and bars surrounding the "5 Anchors" award-winning marina (the biggest in Portugal!) the huge yachts and luxury setting warrant a bit of a pricier bill if you're in the mood for something a bit swanky!
To get the most out of your stay we recommend checking Quarteira Restaurants on TripAdvisor on TripAdvisor to see other diner's reviews and check opening hours as some may close for holidays out of season. If you set your heart on somewhere book it, especially during peak season and for the popular restaurants as they'll be busy. If you're staying in self-catering accommodation and fancy a takeaway, there are dedicated takeaway restaurants but a lot of restaurants will also provide a take-out service if you pop in and ask.
