Algarve-Portugal-A paradise on South Europe

The Algarve is the south region in Portugal where we can have the most restful and pleasant holidays in Europe. Not far from the North of Africa the temperature are warm all over the year. Mild winters and not too hot summers make this part of Portugal the most desirable for  British tourists but also French, Dutch, Spanish or Asian people come year every summer for some weeks of real nice holidays. Nowadays also American tourists elect the Algarve as one of the best places for some relaxing holidays. 

If you like  wonderful beaches, warm weather, astonishing sea landscape, tasty food and lots of extreme (or not) activities, the Algarve is, no doubt, the right holidays' place.

In the Algarve there's plenty of really nice restaurants among the which there's one in particular I would like you to know: BOCAGE in Loulé a cosmopolitan town not far from the coast. Loulé is a nice modern city, although there are lots of older streets and districts with a long story. See the castle for example, very well preserved offering opportunities to be visited.

Loulé is just a few kilometres from the coast where you can enjoy pleasant beaches in towns like Quarteira and Vilamoura  cosmopolitan towns always crowded by tourists coming from numerous parts of the four corners of then world. British, Dutch, French, Spanish, German and even Asian people, come to this part of the Algarve to spent a hell of a time.
Now the restaurant in Loulé:

Bocage is a familiar medium size restaurant in the old part of the city. There you can have lunch or dinner in a truly calm atmosphere and eat homemade meals of high quality.
The staff are very nice and always available for any changes you like in the dish you choose. If you want they also have a take away service.

Here you can have a tasty meal made up of endogenous ingredients, respecting the good old homemade food of the Algarve.

Fish is the exlibris of Bocage restaurant as Loulé locates not far from the sea. The fish they serve is, for me, one of the best you can eat. Very fresh sardines, monkfish, golden bream, bream, cuttlefish, salmon, snook among others. At Bocage restaurant you can try the freshest fish in the area.

Meat dishes are also from the best quality and wonderfuly made. You can also find some meat dishes combined with sea food like clams, shrimp and others.

Fresh fruit and sweet desserts make a happy ending. All the dishes comprise products of this part of Portugal as the owners care about offering the best food there is around. The climate provides plenty of sun all over the year so, the fruit are very sweet, making a nice fruit salad. They also serve Portuguese puddings, chocolate, pineaple and mango mousses, tarts, sweet rice among other delicacies are available in Bocage everyday except on Sundays.

At Bocage the prices are really inviting. You can eat a full meal for around 14€, depending on the kind of ingredients and wether you eat some starters or not. The wines are of a very good quality and varfiety: from the Algarve (lighter and fresher)or Alentejo (stronger and thicker) or from the north (fresher and bitter), it's up to you to choose according to your taste. The coffee from a wideworld known Portuguse brand DELTA is one the best in the world. So, if you want to eat nice homemade meals at a good price don't forget to go to Bocage restaurant in Loulé in the Algarve, south of Portugal.

 Adress: Bocage street, nº 40- Loulé

 The city market in an Arabe style and  the old castle from the 2nd century are worth a visit too.
