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 lake, 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.

Ask to the team for the best sharing selection with a sundowner cocktail, cold beer, sangria or wine. 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!

Please note we do not accept table reservations, we work with first come-first served policy.

Proudly serving tasty food from a dreamy lakeside menu, fresh homemade cocktails and even Provence rosé, The Shack has come a long way since opening as a small bar in 2014. The summer parties are now legendary. From the Full Moon parties to the brand partnerships with drinks and the live music afternoons, the atmosphere at The Shack is fantastic.
