A taste of Portugal
At Figs on the Funcho, you can BYO and stock your own bar from the comfort of home, with no corkage fees. We partner with Rui at Wine and Co, who offer free, distinct and exclusive Portuguese wine tasting sessions when you’re in the Algarve, or have samples delivered to your door to try in the comfort of your own home! For the perfect digestif, why not serve up the local arbutus-berry brandy, Medronho (the Algarve’s firewater), which is produced at Casa do Medronho in Marmelette, less than an hour’s drive from us.
Garden parties at Figs on the Funcho
If you’re getting married in the Algarve at a church or registry office, why not hold your reception dinner and celebrations with us? Your guests can enjoy canapes and cocktails on the Sunset Terrace and a relaxing dinner under the Carob Tree canopy on the Waterfront Deck. The garden party buffet menu includes all of the above (for 30 or more guests), with a lighter option of fresh fruit salad for dessert, all served in the beautiful Algarve sunshine.
What to expect from our wedding catering
Getting married in Portugal is one of the best ways to ensure you’ll create amazing memories you’ll treasure forever. We’ll take care of the food, leaving you free to mingle with your guests and enjoy your day.
Included in our Algarve wedding package is:
- Glasses, tableware and furniture
- A bar with Bar staff who will chill drinks, serve welcome drinks, and after ceremony drinks and place bottles of wine on the tables for dinner. Then, while you’re enjoying your dessert, the bar is turned over and your own pre-arranged drinks service will take over. We can even bring ice (for a small extra charge)!
- A team of helpful staff to lay out the buffet, serve guests, refill the buffet and help in any way needed. We wash up and clean up after ourselves too.
