It is the name of the restaurant and the exact description of your dining experience in this place, where you will taste not only the excellent regional cuisine, but also find weekly semantics with cuisine from other Portuguese regions.
Begin the journey with the cover charge, where you will find salt flower, flavored butters, olive oil and olives with various breads to accompany. Fish pate is part of the cover charge and is a daily surprise, although it retains its traditional grounding roots and, in this case, the sea.
Whether in winter in front of the fireplace or in summer in front of the pool, the bar always has a treat to accompany your tea or coffee.
Start with a beautiful entree, whether it is a rich fish soup or a grain falafel with pumpkin and almond jam, the most famous in sagres, surprising for the lightness of consistency and weight of flavors. The woodpecker, the sardines and the clams are also options. It is best to order a snack tasting to taste the best there is to offer.
In the dishes, despite the absolutely delicious meat options, fish are the main guests in this journey of flavors that always comes back to the origin of everything: the sea. Cataplanas and octopus - à lagareiro - are the most requested. Of course, the traditional Portuguese grilled fish is found on the menu.
If meat is your preference, the duck leg with carolino orange and arabic sauce is a must see, and if you are a vegetarian you will find plenty of options, both in the letter and in conversation, that will surprise you.
And Algarvian sweets find their way to the table, either through the summer dessert buffet or order the perfect ending to your à la carte meal. The caramel and orange pie are a must, the sky bacon is divine, but the carob and arbutus chocolate mousse created by the inn is absolutely memorable. Since all desserts - and breakfast cakes - are made at the inn, this is a trip you won't want to miss.
