Description
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, and come back to visit soon! “Bom apetite!” Isabel & Zé
