Praia da Luz Paraíso Restaurant Destroyed by Fire

Unfortunate news, a fire broke out early Wednesday morning at the iconic Paraíso beach restaurant in Praia da Luz, destroying the family-run business that had been in operation since 1964.

The fire was reported at 12:07am and took firefighters nearly two hours to extinguish. No one was injured in the blaze, but the restaurant was reduced to little more than the wooden support posts that held it up.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.

The Paraíso restaurant was a fully wooden building and a popular spot for locals and tourists alike.

This is the look of the restaurant a couple of days later, its still with police tape all around, most likely still under investigation.


  1. Such sad news, my heart goes out to the Reis family and all the team at Paraiso – such a lovely bunch of people – a very sad day – my thoughts are wIth you all Cx

    1. Indeed, I just hope it was some freak accident and that the insurance will cover most of it, at least no one got hurt and that’s always the most important thing.
