Ababuja is one of Alvor’s best known restaurants and it’s popular among the visitors of all walks of life.  This restaurant is on a must visit list , but reservations is highly recommended especially during the high season it can get very busy.  You don’t have to stay in a Praia da Luz Villa to enjoy the fine restaurants here.   Each night from about 6pm you ll notice the taxis arriving possibility for Lagos  or Salema dropping passengers and picking up others.  So if you stay on Lagos holiday rental or a villa in Salema is easy to get to Praia da Luz.

Regardless of where your Apartment in Algarve or your Portugal Apartment is, if you are a person who loves dining in unique restaurants then distance is no problem.
