Casa Velha

Standing Above The Rest: Casa Velha Restaurant

One of the most popular resorts along the Algarve Coast is the Quinta do Lago. This imposing resort covers quite a bit of the coast in Almancil region, and there’s also where you can find one of the best dining spots in Algarve. Casa Velha Restaurant towers over the resort, sitting on a hill overlooking the ocean.

Casa Velha restaurant, which lies inside a centuries old farmhouse, beats anything that the resort has to offer for dining, hands down. The cuisine is primarily French, but also includes Portuguese and other international dishes, for an average cost of between 20 and 30 Euros. This quiet gem of the Algarve restaurant scene offers salads of chicken livers and leeks with vinaigrette, lobster salad with an infusion of vanilla, along with sea bass, duck and filet of sole, with at least twelve different spices to intrigue even the most experienced gourmet guests.

The hosts, Yannick and Celine Guichaoua, welcome each guest as if they are being invited into their own home, and in a way, you are. This Algarve restaurant is decorated with a distinctly homey touch, from the artwork on the walls to the rustic table settings.

The wine cellar boasts many of the best that Portuguese growers can produce, as well as imports from all over the world. Casa Velha restaurant is the perfect place for year-round dining, with a large open fireplace that draws visitors long after the resort closes for the season.
