Quarteira has a beachfront, with lots of eateries, joined on to Vilamoura, a more touristy place with marina. Not near a rail station, but has a bus terminal ... details at www.algarvebus.info

It,s very unlikely you will be ripped off in Quarteira itself , restaurants are very fair , they have to be as its a working town more than a tourist trap . It has a long promenade with lots to offer , away from the prom. and across the dual carriageway is a maze of interesting side streets some with fantastic restaurants ( see trip advisor) . hope you have a great time .

Spent a week in Quartiera in June having been to other areas on the Algarve. It is not geared up for British tourists but still a very nice place to stay. The beach is fabulous as is the the new walkway into Vilamoura. The eating places are mostly Portuguese and very reasonably priced. Bus station can give you information on routes to other areas we used taxi service which was fairly priced. We had a great stay there.

We visited Quarteira for an evening.

We ate at Coral Food and Wine, we had Tapa's and it was excellent.

The restaurant has indoor and outdoor seating and is on the seafront.

The restaurant was spotlessly clean, the staff were very friendly and on top of that the food was very reasonably priced.

They also do other food as well as Tapa's.

If we were in Quarteira again we would definately go back.

If you like steak then Bem Bon is excellent

It's situated just along from the bus station

I can fully agree with Steve B , the Bem Bom serves great steaks , it is one of our favourite places to take friends as they also offer a 10 course meat meal (about 15 euro) , the best meat is served last so don't go mad early on !! . Last time I found the bulls neck the tastiest . Also whilst in Quarteira I recommend you trying the black pork .

Quarteira was the first place I stayed some 32 years ago when we visite the Algarve then move to Vilamoura close to the Marina but often visit Quarteira an ow able to walk there by the new Promenade first visiting the Fish Market often having a meal in the Caravela, an often grab a Taxi to the Marufo for the Piri Piri .

Often change buses at Quarteira to go on to Loule, an visit the Indoor Market.

Quarteira may be a working town but I just watched a Video on yu tube an it was certainly full of Tourists and the place has certainly has some great Pastelarias, I will be visiting Quarteria again also in November. while you are there ont forget to take a walk around the Marina in Vilamoura.
