All the dishes come to your table beautifully presented and with great attention to detail.

A Vela offers a variety of traditional, international and Mediterranean cuisine. You can start of with a magnificent traditional dish from the Algarve Coast, Muxama (dried tuna salad) or even share a national cheese plate with homemade jams. As a main you can order between fish, meat or share dishes with your family & friends. A Vela’s Guests love the octopus a lagareiro style and the steak on the stone ‘do it yourself’ as well as the so well known typical Cataplana. When it comes to the delicious and All Homemade desserts, by Antónia, it is hard to resist to a special Orange tiramisu or a traditional Fig and Carob Tart from the Algarve.

Describe us in 3 different ways? Here you go! 

Differentiation, Traditional & Unique.

Firstly we always and always set our goals straight, personalized service to each and everybody by creating an unforgettable experience. The fact of not being immediately on the ‘hotspot’ street of the Village we differentiate ourselves with the great atmosphere and enormous first floor panoramic restaurant that we proudly represent.

Secondly the taste of the dishes enhance every temper, flavor and moreover passion for portuguese cuisine. As a guest you may order a variety of traditional food and know for sure that you can go home to family & friends telling you have had real portuguese food.

Last but not least, uniqueness is the combo of both plus the atmosphere felt while experiencing an evening with us.
