The Castelos Restaurant was
opened in the late 1960s by Carlos Vicente and Henriqueta Duarte, and was one
of the very first restaurants in Praia da Rocha. Now managed by the
couple’s grandchildren, the kitchen is still led by hands that are as
capricious as ever.
Like many others, until 2005 this
restaurant in Praia da Rocha was little more than a beach support facility but
it gained new structure when the beach was refurbished.
At Castelos Restaurant, you are
treated like family and the service is friendly and attentive. Proof of this is
the fact that it is now serving its third generation of customers, who return
year after year to enjoy their family holiday meals.
In this restaurant in Praia da Rocha,
the sea provides inspiration for the specialities on the menu, all of which are
skilfully prepared using quality ingredients and loving care and attention. The
typical Algarve cuisine served here includes such delights as cataplanas,
seafood rice, fresh fish and seafood, and fish, meat or tropical kebabs.
The wine list is exemplary and the team
includes a sommelier who will advise you and help you make the best choice.
This same level of specialisation can also be found at the bar, where you can
enjoy some of the best gins and cocktails in Praia da Rocha.
