It may just look like the other BBC fish bars in Fuzeta, but they offer other choices which you should not miss. We saw the advert for a Cataplanass, so took a chance and ordered ready for that evening. You have to give several hours...More

The food is excellent (the roasted pork...melt in the mouth). Grilled fish (succulent and very generous serving). Algarve carrots (one of the best in the area). Prices are unbelievable, very inexpensive. The man who runs the place....does it all.....friendly, pleasant, efficient.

Take your time here. Don't go when you are in a hurry. But wait and watch what is going on and you have a good time and good food also.

Description
Snack-Bar Galactica is a small family run restaurant situated opposite the Camp Site.
Excellent Value for Money – House wine very acceptable.

Parking is available outside.
The Menu is mainly fresh fish and local fare – all cooked fresh on the BBQ or baked in the oven using traditional methods.
We ate here every night and sampled all traditional dishes.
Cataplana is truly amazing but also either the King Prawn and Black Pig kebabs or King Prawn & Monk Fish kebabs – presented hanging on its own special plate with chips and salad straight from the BBQ........... Clams Carne de Porco à Alentejana (Portuguese Pork and Clams) – brilliant.
We were so delighted by the service/ food and overall ambiance; we ordered the night before and tried something different each night.
Highly recommend this restaurant excellent food at very reasonable prices, after the second visit the locals recognise you and make you feel very welcome even practising their English!
