ChampagneFineDiningOpen for light lunches, snacks, afternoon tea or even an early sundowner, the Garden Café by Fine Dining in Style, now open at Natura Garden Centre in Almancil, is a new ‘pop-up’ casual concept for the summer.

Located in a shaded, tranquil spot in the middle of the popular garden centre on Estrada de Vale do Lobo in Escanxinas, the Garden Café’s menu includes tapas-style sharing starters and salads; grilled prawns, steak, fish and chicken; grazing platters of Portuguese meats and cheeses; dishes of the day; and freshly-made cakes and desserts. A variety of items are also available for delivery or take-away.

The traditional flavour of the seaWe set foot towards the other side of the Algarve, with chef Megan, to realise why there are traditional flavours that are worth keeping. The smell and the taste of the sea continues to be present in the octopus eggs that are dried through a method that is becoming uncommon. In search of authenticity, we understand that the people of the Eastern Algarve continue to choose octopus roe to eat with their friends in the company of one or two beers. So we were trying to figure out how this product is made and how it is typically consumed.

Quinta de São Francisco in growing international recognitionIf doubts still existed regarding the quality of Portuguese wines, the growing international recognition would be more than enough proof that the national wine production is in excellent health.

To this day, Quinta de São Francisco has accumulated more than 60 medals, 20 of them gold. But this year it went even further: the 2014 harvest won a double gold medal thanks to its 98/100 points achievement at the San Francisco International Wine Competition, the largest and most prestigious wine competition in the United States, the first DOC Óbidos wine to obtain 98 points in this international competition.

Quinta de S. Francisco wine has always been the best-selling DOC Óbidos in Portugal as well as in export markets.
