O Cacto

Liven Up Your Trip With A Visit To The O Cacto Restaurant

This Odiaxere restaurant is located between Portimão and Lagos, on the EN 125, and is one of the liveliest in the region. Serving traditional Portuguese cuisine, it is quickly becoming a rising star on the Algarve restaurant scene, thanks to its unique interpretations of old favorites.

The menu at the O Cacto Restaurant is dominated by the many varieties of fresh fish and seafood on hand daily from fishermen who ply the nearby sea. Moderately priced in comparison to other entries in the Odiaxere restaurant area, the dishes here reflect both the tradition of Portugal, as well as its Moorish roots.

Set off against the hilly countryside, the O Cacto restaurant brings patrons in with its quaint and rustic appearance, as well as the tantalizing smells coming from the kitchen. In addition to the fish and seafood, favorite dishes served here include lamb, steaks and venison, when in season. Supplemented with fresh vegetables and herbs from the region, and topped off with heady wines from local vineyards. It’s a truly a unique Algarve restaurant experience that no one should miss while visiting the region.

Be sure to try the Cataplana, prepared on the open fireplace, for a show-stopping and delicious adventure, or roast lamb straight from the oven, well-seasoned with garlic and other herbs. Nowhere else in the area will you find so many wonderful dishes, prepared with skill and a love for the food itself.
