Local tips!: Eating out in Cabanas is great with all eateries no more than a few minutes walk away. Prices are good and quality fine with many local fresh fish dishes excellent. Expect to pay on average 10-18 euros per head for a great meal. Recommendations:
1) Mariscos & Pesticos, next to the fish market marina end or Jeonimo's just past the Sports Bar by the ferries to the beach, both great fish and local dishes.
2) Atlanis for great pizza/pasta restaurant mid way along the boardwalk, kids love it.
3) Try the Jolly Sailor in the Quinta Velha apartments just up the road from the apartment, the prawn curry is historic.
4) Escalo's on the corner bottom of apartments, the local special is great value
5) CRC club next door to fish market on the promenade (1st floor) the fish & chips are great!
Wine is very quaffable, pay 7-15 euros in restaurants and even cheaper in supermarkets. Try the 'borba' red or 'planalto' white. Beer costs no more than 1.50 - 2 euros a glass, kids drinks around 1 euro a 'pop

Just returned from our 4th relaxing summer break in Cabanas, apartment still looks brand new, enjoyed the great weather, found a few new eateries. Beach beautiful as usual, roll on summer 2009.......... A & G Knight
Kids had a wonderful time in the pool, it's so convenient & especially with Escalo's just around the corner for lunch. Had a great time on Cabanas beach learning to kite surf. Mr & Mrs D Mills
Just wanted to say that we had a fantastic holiday and your apartment was just ideal , equipped with everything and perfect location. Will definitely return to Cabanas , only sorry I am not there now !
It was just what I was looking for. Not too expensive, just big enough for the five of us to have a comfortable week.
We walked every day to the boat to go to the lovely Cabanas beach.
Had most of our meals at home. The kitchen had every thing we needed. For those more lazy days there are very nice restaurants in Cabanas, all in walking distance.
The swimming pool area is nice. The kids enjoyed playing in the pool.
Both the owner and the manager are really nice friendly people making me feel at home.
The property was clean, well maintained, well stocked with plenty of utensils, furniture,linen and information to guide you around the area.
The manager provided loads of local information, and was at the end of a phone with help if required.
Amazing selection of local restaurants, but the Jolly Sailor is definitely worth a visit, and is only 2 minutes walk from the apartment
The beach at Cabanas is well worth the 75 cents per person each way on the boat taxis, it is beautiful
Friends are already looking at booking this fantastic apartment !!
This was our second year at this apartment. Just that in itself should say alot! All your basic needs are met. Close enough to the waterfront, restaurants, bakery and supermarkets.!Both the owner and caretaker are hospitable and always willing to help you with anything you may need. I definitely recommend this apartment if you are looking for a home away from home
This apartment has good facilities and its location in Cabanas is perfect. The aircon was just excellent to have in the apartment when the temperature outside was around 35 degrees. The owner and the manager were really kind and helpful and gave us a lot of suggestions of good restaurants in the town. We spent our 10 days in Cabanas with lots of sunbathing in the Atlantic and we also visited a lot of excellent restaurants.
It won’t be the last time we go to Cabanas but next time we will probably rent a car so that we can explore more of Algarve. With a car it is also easier to go shopping in the nearby city of Tavira where there is a Lidl store which makes it cheaper for our family of 5 persons. The food stores in Cabanas are quite expensive and don’t have a large selection of food. For shorter stays a car is not necessary as the train station is located not far away from the apartment.
We had a lovely stay at this apartment! Were very surprised to see that each room and sitting room had air con. Our basic needs were met! A home away from home! It was more than what we were expecting! The owner and manager were very helpful and extremely kind. Thank you to them both! It is not the first time I went to Cabanas, but the first time I enjoyed it as much! Close enough to what we need, everything is within walking distance. I have recommended this property to family and friends and myself will return one day
We had a fantastic 10 days in Portugal. The apartment had every home comfort and more. The air conditioning was a real luxury after the hot weather outside. The beds were so comfortable and there was always plenty of hot water and a good powerful shower. The kitchen is modern and has everything you could possibly need.
It was a short walk to the main area of shops and there is a huge variety of fantastic restaraunts and cafes to choose from. It was very cheap to eat out.
Would thoroughly reccommend.
