Review of The Shack

The Shack
Description: We are closed for the winter season but we will be re-opening on St. Patrick's Day 2018! The Shack Bar, situated in the heart of our breathtaking lakeside location is the latest addition to Quinta do Lago. Enjoy light tapas, snacks, and delicious cocktails under a blanket of stars. The perfect spot for afternoon drinks & tasty-tapas-style grub alongside the banks of Ria Formosa Nature Park! Come out of your shell! #TheShackScene

My family and I arrived early evening. The place was quite busy. We waited a few minutes to be seated. A number of staff walked by and didn’t acknowledge us. Another family then entered the restaurant and were seated ahead of us. I queried this with a staff member. She was extremely rude to me and gesticulated at me. First time I have ever walked out of a restaurant.

Took some friends to this restaurant,the atmosphere is good as are the cocktails,foody bit is just OK, the service was quick and efficient (well oiled machine)
The location is fab...!
Just felt a little bit like get them in and out as quick as you can...?
Cocktails a little pricy as a guide around 40 to 50 euros for a round for four people.
Live music from 16:00 closes at 20:00
There is a small beach with sun loungers which you rent from the restaurant €30 half day€50 full day and a cabanas for €60 for the day
Overall we had a fun lunch and afternoon and will go back at some point but won’t be a regular haunt.

We found this place whilst our walking and enjoyed a coffee. The setting was so lovely we returned for lunch the following day. The sangria we washed it down with is expensive 28 Euro’s but I loved my steak skewers and the wonderful setting makes it worth a Euro or two more.

The Shack is probably the most relaxed and chilled restaurant in the Algarve Quinta. It is right on the lake and it has pub food. We had burgers which were good. We also had nachos to start which was a but basic and I'd give these amiss.

Lively band and friendly waiters. Its a nice contrast to the fine dining of the Algarve
