Location and contact

Authentic Flavours of Ria Formosa Born and raised by the sea, the people of the Algarve have integrated the gifts of the ocean into cuisine for generations. Our menu is a collection of flavours, aromas, and textures harvested from the waves and developed at the table with family and friends. At Estaminé, we recognize that community is central to Portuguese cuisine, and hope to foster conversation with dishes designed to be discovered together. Whether you are savoring local clams or selecting a fresh fish to be charcoal-grilled, you are seizing on an experience that Estaminé has been refining for over three decades. We hope you enjoy the food, drink, and experience that Estaminé has to offer,

Based on the 'Deserted Island' in the Ria Formosa, this restaurant is really worth a visit. Fresh and quality (local) sea food and friendly staff. The view is amazing and so it the rest!

Even though the restaurant was half empty, the staff insisted we could only seat at a bad table close to the service area. We were planning a large and expensive meal, but left immediately as the staff seemed to be assigning tables based on nationality...More

Sorry for the delay in answering. I was on a small island in Croatia without wi-fi. I recommend you to take a ferry from Faro to Ilha Deserta. If you are in Olhao then you can take a train from Olhao to Faro first. There are... More
