Forte e Feio


Forte e Feio

The Forte e Feio Restaurant first opened for business in 1996 in a very old building in Largo da Barca Square that was originally one of the dockside warehouses. The stone walls and wooden beams have been preserved, enhancing the sense of bygone days and providing an ambience replete with charm and tradition.
Characteristic of the restaurants in Portimão, fresh fish takes pride of place on the menu at the Forte e Feio. It comes fresh from the daily fish auction in Portimão and the quality and variety are second to none.
