Sora Beach features oysters and the famous Algarvian Cataplana among the menu highlights
Sora Beach Restaurant and Bar is part of the Domes Lake Algarve resort and aims to be an “homage to the culinary world of the Algarve”.
Led by chef Vítor Moreira, Sora Beach is promising a “unique gastronomic experience” with the Atlantic Ocean and Portugal’s vast coast – “and everything it gives us”- as the main inspiration for the menu.

Among the highlights are oysters, fish ‘cataplana’ (a stew cooked in a clam-shaped copper pot), fish ‘massada’ (fish pasta stew), clams, piri-piri chicken and Black Angus steak, which are served at any time of the day “before or after a swim in the sea,” says the chef.
Moreira’s culinary journey in the hospitality sector began in 1999 at Hotel Concorde La Fayette and has led him to other renowned hotels, having later showcased his talent at major events such as the Roland-Garros ATP Tournament and the International Paris Air Show Le Bourget”.
After beginning at the Lake Resort as a sous-chef, he took full command of the hotel’s kitchen as Executive Chef in 2018, where he remains, creating a “series of tasteful wonders, catering to the most demanding of appetites”.
Meanwhile, Domes Lake Algarve general manager Alexandre Maia de Carvalho highlights the restaurant’s “fantastic view, lounge music and smell of holidays in the air”, which he believes will attract clients and have them returning for more.
As the restaurant’s website says: “Sit back, relax, close your eyes, and let the cool breeze imprint the captivating images of the Portuguese coastline, on your mind.”
The restaurant (located in Praia da Rocha Baixinha) is open for lunch Monday to Sunday from 12pm to 6pm and for dinners Fridays and Saturdays from 6pm to 9pm. For more information, contact +351 934 440 194
