“A Ilha” Restaurant

Porto Covo

Next to Porto Covo, just in front of the Pessegueiro Island and in the middle of the Rota Vicentina, where the Historical Way and the Fisherman's Trail intersect, the Restaurant “A Ilha” is a regional landmark with more than forty years of history.
The restaurant has a varied and rich menu, here you can try the typical Alentejo gastronomy, as well as the grilled meat and fresh fish, seafood, ‘cataplanas’ and regional sweets.

With an absolutely unique scenery and natural setting, overlooking the sea and the iconic Pessegueiro Island, near the Pessegueiro Fort and in the middle of the trail, this is one of those places where you will feel compelled to stop, whether for a refreshing drink or an invigorating meal before continuing the walk. If you want to stay on the terrace, just ask for a taxi to be called, it's simple!
