Back To O Lusitano, Albufeira, Algarve, Portugal

Following the disappointment of returning to our once favourite restaurant in Albufeira to find it had changed in every way possible (none for the better) we were unsure whether to risk ruining more happy memories by going back to another old favourite.

That’s exactly what I needed and what I got at ‘A Paleta’ in Lagoa, just a ten minute drive from said water park. A Paleta doesn’t have a website and isn’t much to look at ... Read More »
