Description: Welcome to Museu dos Salgados RestaurantMany questions are asked about the origin of this name. Perhaps because of its complex origin, the answer is not uniform… It is somewhat tailored at the mercy of those who visit us.To satisfy the refined taste of our customers, the selection of dishes is carefully based on different flavours, sometimes contrasting, that magnificently unite to form a unique and unforgettable outcome.

“Good option”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

This is a restaurant that we have tried before to visit, but was very often closed (we tried for at least 3-4 yrs). After confirmation by phone we have visit the restaurant ina group of 5 people, and we must say that we will write in in our list-to-visit, as we are frequently in these area. It was not exceptional, but the food was good, the ambience comfortable and intimate. The prices were similar to others practiced in these areas (30-35 € by person, with drinks and desert). The service was a bit slow, I did not understood the reason, because there were not much clients. I recommend this restaurant, but without excitement.

“Fantastic Food and great hosts”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013

I visit this restaurant each time I go to the Algarve and it is always a wonderful experience. The food is absolutely superb and the owners are delightful and make you feel very welcome. Nothing is too much trouble for them and they welcome you back like long lost friends. Their prices are on par with any other restaurant od the same quality and much less than you would pay for an equivalent meal in the UK.

“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013

We have been holidaying in Portugal for 13 years and no holiday wouldnt be complete without one or two visits here, the food is always excellent, as is the wine!! The owners always remember us from previous years which makes the experience much more personal, one of my favourite holiday outings! Looking forward to revisiting next week.

“Fish on a plate!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

We had such a nice meal and drinks on our first visit in our one week stay we went back for a second helping! The restaurant is only a few yards away from Prima Pasta (see my review) and on the main road but the outside seated garden area is above the road level and more secluded.
The staff are very helpful and make you feel like a VIP. We were a group of 4 married couples and reserved a table for 8.30 on arrival we sat outside and we were having a drink, when the owner came over with a display on a tray of several types of fresh fish he said he had caught himself that morning. I chose the red bream and my friends picked two other types, later on we were so glad we did as the fish and food prepared was delicious. The restaurant is spotless and the décor and ambience is classy and well above the average for the area but as the saying goes you only get what you pay for. The prices are a tad higher than other establishments in the surrounding area but in our hectic one week Algarve stay the museu came out tops.
If you want good food and drink in a clean and pleasant environment and a chat with the chef/owner who speaks 7 languages fluently this is the place to visit for Algarvian hospitality.

“Lovely, not quite typical Portuguese place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

I visited Museu dos Salgados last month when my wife and I managed to nip over to Portugal for a few days without the kids. The food, service and wine are all excellent. We ate a la carte but there was also a tourist menu that seemed pretty reasonable. The only downside is its situated on a main road and therefore the traffic noise is quite annoying.
