La Crêperie offers not only THE most lush crepes and ice creams, but is the perfect place to indulge yourself with some people watching on the cool chill out terrace. A stage offers live entertainment in the early evenings, and a wonderful way to begin a night out in the Praça.

  •   This article was written by Algarve Life Stripped Naked: Sitting here gazing at the crinkled velvet ocean, even though the eggs benedict are fabulous, but I am half regretting my decision to make this my breakfast stop. Reason 1) I noticed the lobster tank on arrival and the cheeky crabs and lobsters waving at me and almost shouting ʻhey blondie, pick meʼ !!! Reason 2) I have just seen their evening menu. Reason 3) I really want to sample ALL of their deserts Reason 4) It is a really romantic location and Iʼm here on my own!!!

  •   This article was written by Algarve Life Stripped Naked: With a very Italian flair and feel, La Terrazza is authentic in its dishes and surroundings. Right in the heart of the Praça and next to Montys where I do admit to a few excellent nights out recently! The elegant dining room is Italian themed, but as the weather is so good I chose to sit on the terrace. There is also a great view of the centre stage here, so not only can you worship the heavenly nights here, you can listen to the entertainment! The one big thing I have noticed amongst all the places I have visited in the Praça, is the seamless way all things flow. I...

  •   This article was written by Algarve Life Stripped Naked: Situated in the centre of the Praça, Amore is to pizza and pasta as my favourite Kurt Geiger left heel is to the right!! Essential dining, including meat and fish, there is something for everyone on this menu. Seated outside the striking red and black restaurant on the terrace, I order the Salmone Marinato,( fresh salmon marinated with ginger lemon & herbs, finely sliced over toasts ), followed by Tagliatelle al Spinaci, ( ribbon pasta with spinach, diced bacon, fresh cream and parmesan ). Vale do Lobo Praça is like a friendly little village. The elderly couple doing their crossword and noisily challenging each other over the correct answer from yesterday...

  •   This article was written by Algarve Life Stripped Naked: Well I must say I am thoroughly enjoying my time in Vale do Lobo, and my evening is being spent at Montys in the Praça. The terrace is invitingly lit, when you enter through the Montys signature doors, the decor of the main bar area that greats you is that of ʻstylish clubʼ. Reminiscent of a few old London haunts from back in the 80ʼs, I smile with nostalgia. Already I love this place, the atmosphere is spot on, groups of diners, families, golfers, couples. I feel comfortable here. I wonder around looking at the ʻWalls of Fameʼ as ! wait for one of the owners, Ian Digby. Mr charm himself...
