Pete and Chez Knopp who own The Cottage have lived in the Algarve since 1987. Before running The Cottage we had been involved with management of other bars and restaurants and a small design and print company.
We 1st rented The Cottage in its old location near the Montechoro hotel in 1998 and bought it from the owners in 1999. After 14 successful years and having started a family, we wanted to downsize to a more manageable restaurant and this is how we come to be at our present location on the centre part of The Strip.
We opened the new restaurant in June 2012 and still have many staff who have been with us since 2001.
We are open 12 months of the year and the only real changes are a Winter and Summer menu.
