Set in Monte Carvoeiro, in the Algarve resort of Carvoeiro, Restaurant O Salmão is an excellent choice for an evening of tasty food and great hospitality. The interesting menu, wonderful setting and highly professional service has made O Salmão very popular, many visitors choosing to return time and time again during their stay in the Algarve.
Seafood is the speciality at O Salmão. The owner and chef, Ed, takes pride in finding the freshest and tastiest fish for the daily specials. He is ably assisted in the kitchen by his Portuguese wife, Cristina - owner of the intriguing accent! Daughter Ana, along with her brother John, looks after the front of house, making O Salmão a real family run restaurant. The family has been running restaurants in the Algarve since 1982, so they know exactly where to find the best produce and exactly what their clients like.
At O Salmão most of the fish dishes are served off the bone, so there is no battling with those bitty bones. The accompanying sauces complement the fish perfectly. Meat eaters are not forgotten - the menu features lamb, chicken and steak dishes, and every Sunday evening from October to May you can enjoy a traditional Sunday Roast. Starters can include delicious home-made paté and piri-piri prawns. Watch out for the piri-piri - it packs quite a punch. The desserts are all home-made and are very, very tasty!
Along with quality of the food and service - both excellent - it's the welcoming, relaxed atmosphere at O Salmão that makes it so popular. Unassuming and unpretentious, you can count on enjoying a tasty, relaxing meal here. The setting is wonderful too - Monte Carvoeiro square is a self contained area with a central fountain surrounded by palm trees and flowers. Antsy youngsters can have a run around the square every now and again, leaving more sedentary diners to enjoy their meal in peace.. The square is just a stones throw from the centre of Carvoeiro.
For the quality of the food and service and for the warmth of the welcome each client receives, we are more than happy to recommend O Salmão for a very pleasant evening.
