Olé! Viva México! And, Viva Cantina del Lobo, the new Mexican restaurant in the central Algarve. With colorful lanterns hanging above, Dia de Muertos masks and iguanas on the wall, and the stunning Atlantic Ocean as a backdrop, the setting could be mistaken for Cancún…but it’s not. Cantina del Lobo is on the popular Praça of the Vale do Lobo resort in Almancil.

All of your favorite Mexican dishes are on the menu including ceviche, tacos, burritos and fajitas. The chefs at Cantina del Lobo provide their own twist on these and other delicious dishes.
Quesadillas (tasty ingredients between two large flour tortillas) are always good to share as a starter….or to eat as a main course. Cantina del Lobo prepares them with chicken and mushrooms, chouriço and mashed sweet potatoes, or beef and caramelized onions. All are filled with fresh cheese.
Enchiladas are made with chicken breast, mushrooms, cheese and mole sauce, or shrimp, cheese and tomatillo sauce.
From the grill, Black Angus sirloin steak, fillet steak, chicken breast, Mexican barbeque ribs and rack of lamb are paired with beautiful sauces filled with Mexican flavors.
At the bar, tequila is king! Claro, margaritas are the drink of choice. The margarita menu features original concoctions made with coconut, raspberry, kiwi, mango and strawberry. The Signature margarita, though, fits the bill nicely, made with Monin Mango and passion fruit pure, mint, tequila, sweet & sour and triple sec. Pitchers of margaritas can be ordered for sharing.
Starters range from €3.00 to €8.00. Mains are €11.00 to 18:00. Margaritas by the glass are €8.00 and by the pitcher €21.00.
