About Us

The Algarve has great local produce, seafood, pork and bread. At Sunshine Catering we never enter the freezer section of the grocery store. The local markets are our destination. Our food is made fresh and delicious. Our cutlery gleams. See our other strengths below.


We do not follow many formulas. We have no limits to what we can do for you. From decor, to food styling to service, we can make your wish a reality


Our team is English, American, Dutch, Portuguese and who-knows-what-else. Thus, we have a collection of diverse backgrounds and experiences to make anything possible


That’s right! We scale things all the time; usually stairs and hills which are in abundance in the Algarve. Toting ovens, chillers and tons of crockery to wherever your needs dictate

Special Diets

We actually excel at the special dietary needs of your guests and crew. We pride ourselves at making stunning meals from scarce stock. Are you restricted to air only? We can make it taste good.


Tents, ovens, linens, glassware, vehicles, manpower. We have it all to accommodate any crowd of any size and of any state of sobriety

A Giant Skillet

We have this enormous teflon-coated skillet that we picked up in Angola of all places. It allows large-scale flash-sautéing and food flipping. It is so cool!
