Opening Times

First timers to Portugal this year. We prefer to eat quite early in the evening so just wondering what time the restaurants open in Olhos? Any must try local dishes and comments on the local wine?

Also are there any sea fishing trips worth going on?

Thanks in advance.

tend to open 6 to 6 .30 no fishing trips from Olhos must try local dishes are

Cataplana mixed meat and seafood stew although there are variants

Fresh Barbecued fish normaly selected from chilled display cabinet and bought by weight

Chicken Piri Piri barbecued chicken with a spicy chili flavour

for white if you like crisp dry Vinho Verde for reds good areas are Alentejo and the Douro valley but you will find the house wines in most restaurants quite palatable Vinho Branco de casa for white and Vinho tinto de casa for red

sorry for crashing this post but i want to ask sunndays about the wine!

I drink sauvignon blanc normally and really struggled to find a nice wine last year in the continente supermarket. Is Vinho Verde available in the supermarket do you know? We will be arriving next week for a 3 week holiday and i want to find a nice wine!

Thanks for the replies.

I'm sure i'll sample the food and wine!

We are staying at Agua de Marinha up near the Jollies restaurant and wondered how close they are to the supermarkets? Is there a big supermarket in the village?
