There's plenty of choice when it comes to dining. Dress up for dinner at the two-Michelin-starred restaurant with a sea view, Ocean. The restaurant Bela Vita offers a great Sunday brunch while Adega is a typical Portuguese restaurant which serves innovative dishes. For fine dining, head to Aladin Grill, Atlântico and Japanese restaurant Mizu Teppanyaki. If you’re with the family or little ones then Whale is ideal. Quench your thirst at one of the many bars throughout the resort including coffees at Café Bica, healthy juices at Delfim and a vast wine selection at the Wine Cellar. Many of the restaurants are open seasonally, so during off season there will be fewer restaurants to choose from.
