Just like all over Portugal, The Algarve offers its own traditional gastronomy, strongly influenced by the cuisine and Mediterranean culture.
Algarve is divided in three distinct geographic and gastronomical areas:

- The Coast (with fish and seafood dishes especially dishes with tuna and octopus).
- The inland areas of the Barrocal (with simple dishes of fresh vegetables and sausages).
- Algarve mountains (with heavier dishes with chicken and pork stews).

Olive oil is the preferred and used for both, seasoning and for cooking, along with onions, tomatoes, peppers, garlic and fresh herbs such as parsley and coriander.

Desserts and sweets are strongly influenced by the almond, the fig and carob trees that are all native to the region together with the old traditions of the Alentejo province showcasing interesting artistic preparations with eggs, almonds and figs.
