        Ocean is closed for 3 months (renovating the kitchen to cope with their 2nd Michelin star), which is why I did not mention it.
        Ina different class, but Portuguese: Marisqueira Rui's in Silves has the best shellfish in the whole Algarve and restaurant Veneza in Mem Moniz near Paderne the best wine list...

          Have to agree with Rui. Simply fantastic!

        Lunch at Vila Joya on the terrace is a must... http://www.vilajoya.com/ until you can be more specific with your tastes and depth of wallet :o)

          Thanks Monchique. It sure looks great...$ is not an issue, but I'd really like to get my fix of octopus...and just a typical Albuferian seafood joint (if such things exist).
