Old Bastard’s

No the title of this post does not refer to the two ‘young at heart’, fabulous fellows I am sharing my house with here in Praia da Luz. Ol’ Bastard’s is the name of a great little fish and chips place in Lagos just up the road from where we are.  Dave heard it was highly recommended and so we decided to try it last night which happened to be the first night it was open for the tourist season after being closed for several months. 

 Yesterday was an absolutely gorgeous day – our warmest and finest since arriving in Portugal and I headed into town an hour or so ahead of the guys so I could hike the 4 kilometers along the ocean at a more leisurely pace– stopping to smell the pine and listen to the waves….. but also to do a little shopping in Lagos. I have Easter baskets to fill and friends and families’ birthdays to recognize when I get back home to Canada. 

The guys joined me at Ol’ Bastard’s.  The host who opened the door and greeted us looked exactly like the fellow on the sign over the front door, but he was anything but an ‘ol’ bastard.’  He was a thirty something young father who spent our entire visit walking around the restaurant with his six month old baby while supervising his friendly staff who provided us with a tasty meal.  

Dave and Rudy both had American fish and chips (you can also order Australian or British fish and chips) and I had the fish tacos.  Dave and Rudy suggested to our waitress they might want to try offering Canadian fish and chips and serve the fries poutine style. 

They were playing 80s and 90s tunes on the restaurant soundtrack and Dave and Rudy spent some of our dinner hour trying to identify the names of the different artists we were hearing . 

Ol’ Bastard’s lived up to its hearty recommendation.

  1. Are you sure the the name of the pub does not refer to the two guys you are traveling with?.
