the shack 

Relax and enjoy yourself with us

With laid-back, rustic charm, The Shack is the lakeside hangout where you can enjoy afternoon drinks and tasty food in a relaxed summertime atmosphere. Standing on the shoreline of the lake, overlooking the nature reserve and sea beyond, the bar and grill embraces the authenticity of an Algarve fisherman’s shack, where you can forget all your troubles and simply soak up the setting.

Try the famous Fish Tacos and Naughty Jalapeño Nachos with a sundowner cocktail, cold beer, fruity sangria or crisp rosé. The Shack is where you can relax in the company of feel-good food, friends and live music. Our summer parties are legendary... If you don’t believe us, ask our regulars!
