Well, I think this is where you will find the best and the most authentic Pastéis of Belém. These are small, sweet pastries filled with cream which is said to have been inherited from the ancient monastery of Geronimo monks of the order of Geronimos and is located right next to the bakery. The recipe is a secret, though, and it is said that only the great chefs here know how to make them. The bakeries are always crowded but are very fast and efficient when they care of you. First go through box and say how many pastries you want. Then you get a ticket andt then you give your ticket to one of the staff of the bar and you get your pastries. They put them in a box with two packets, one with cinnamon and the other with glazed sugar to put on top of the pastries. If you pass by Lisbon don´t forget to go to this place.
You cacn have a coffee or something to eat, both on the terrace and the inside, and it is a pleasure, as well as the place it is situated: Rua Santa Catarina n º 112 4000-442 Porto, Portugal - Tel: 222 003 887 - history says that it was more than a coffee that tells the story of Porto . It had majestic coffee back in the 20s and had a clientele of prominent politicians and artists with big gatherings and debates, it was interesting and I propose a visit even if it is just for a wonderful coffee . Coffee in Portugal are taken differently, people like to savor its aroma. Happy travels to Porto, a lovely city.
This is an institution in Lisbon, before largely frequented by writers and intellectuals, and is now a meeting place for people from all walks of life where you can have a drink and enjoy a lot of recipes, such as a magnificent cod dish. The venue, filled with classic décor, has a nice terrace in one of the most beautiful streets in the city. It´s highly recommended to visit.
According to records, this is the oldest brewery in operation in Portugal. Located in the ¨Barrio Alto¨, it is located at the site of the former Convent of the Holy Trinity. It was founded in 1294 and after its destruction after the great earthquake, it was rebuilt as a brewery. The dining room is decorated with beautiful tiles. There you can also enjoy traditional Portuguese dishes at a reasonable price, which is great for a visiting tourist ve doesn´t want to spend too much money.
This is a restaurant we always go to when we visit Algarve and of course Lagos, one of the most beautiful cities in the whole area. It´s a luxury for its absence, but its comfortable, nice, with good service and very centric You must try its seafood rice and above all the prawns made in a Mozambique style.
It's like a kind of regional home. The are where the building is located is from the last century and has a strong Arab influence. It is a place with arches, courtyards and fountains, and has a grand staircase leading up to the top floor. During the day the cultural center has many events and there is a restaurant where many weddings take place. It's worthwhile to enter to see the architecture and decor in the building.
I went to this iconic café during my visit to Coimbra last year and I consider it a must in the same way that [poi = 59576] Majestic coffee [/ poi] in Porto is a must. This luxurious cafe was inaugurated in 1923 in its namesake plaza, but today offers more affordable prices than it once did. The cafe was once a chapel attached to the Monastery of Santa Cruz, and the previous Manueline-style architecture with its very wide rooms and high ceilings still stands, complete with the stained glass found in most medieval chapels. It's very close to the financial and commercial center of the college-town of Coimbra. Close by, there's a large pedestrian street known as "A Baixa! or Ferreira Borges street where you can find all kinds of shops for clothes, watches, shoes, jewelry, etc.
If you are in Portugal, it is an absolute must to try the cod. This particular restaurant offers a menu with multiple options and fine wines. I recommend that you book because, especially on weekends, it can get very busy. Cando gets very busy and the staff leaves a bit to be desired, but I recommend patience, because when you try the cod, you will completely forget the disappointment ... I also recommend sitting on the floor near the windows, the view of the Douro is beautiful.
This is maybe the most emblematic and traditional coffee bar in the city of Braga, and has been open since 1858. It is located in the basement and porches of the building known as Arcade, in the center of Praça da República, where there is a terrace that is always full of people. It is a very nice place to drink, from a simple soda, ice cream or beer, a good breakfast or snack accompanied by a slice of cake or a pastry. The décor inside the restaurant is in the style of an old 19th century coffee bar, predominantly made of wood and marble.
One of the most magical places in Lisbon. It's an association that has a school of arts and entertainment for underprivileged children. That alone is pretty interesting, but the association also has a hotel complex that is simply stunning. Inside you can see a circus show, a concert or a play while enjoying a beer, cocktail or just while having dinner or a snack. This resort has a large central courtyard where you can enjoy one of the best and most pleasant views of this magical city. You MUST visit this place.
Located opposite the River Duero, with spectacular views towards the city of Porto, this restaurant of Vila Nova de Gaia is ideal for an informal meal enjoyed on its terrace. The tavern specializes in all types of seafood, fried sardines, cheeses, and the famous bacalao. The place is one of the oldest of the Vila Nova de Gaia. It has an excellent winery.
The truth is that this cafe is one of the most charming places I visited on my trip to the Portuguese coast. It is hard to decide which is more delicious, the queijadas that are typically sweet and travesseiros or the service of the lady ve runs the place. If you visit Sintra do not fail to give a tribute in the form of tea.
It never failed, whenever we ate in Ericeira we went to Furnas. Or maybe it was the opposite and we always went to Ericeira to eat there. I´m not sure, but you can eat here one of the best fresh local fish, at a fairly nice price and if you're lucky, on the beautiful terrace overlooking the sea.
If you are fans of the sweet and good environments and coincidentally if you're visiting the Portuguese capital, I recommend going to the Pastelería Nacional. With classic décor maintained since 1829, its two whole screed floors offer everything you can imagine with a great atmosphere in which to spend the afternoon in a typical city with a pastry, especially the cream cakes (which I strongly recommend). Definitely a place to visit and to photograph!
It was a long journey from Madrid to rest at the Ibis Setubal. We wanted to find something to eat, and we were quite clear that we wanted fish, and fresh! That was the challenge. So I opened Minube and we crossed our fingers that I would be able to solve the problem. There he was, with four or five super-positive comments of other consumers ve have eaten there before. Really great. Fresh fish and seafood, good portions served at a fair price. Before you even order anything they bring you some bowls of shrimp, octopus with vinaigrette and eggs with vinaigrette. The house wine was very good. The super friendly waiter explained each dish to us and challenged our culinary knowledge. We ate and drank for just under € 20 per head. We had food left over. For starters we had grilled sardines: 10 spectacular sardines for just € 9.5, then for the second course: Setubalense Caldeirada at € 28: it's like a zarzuela, really delicious seafood. And finally also for two: Rice Garoupa death was also € 28. It was a pity that they had ran out of chocolate mousse. Today I will go back and try the muscle, but I also want to try the fried choco Setubalense. You must go, you will not regret it.
We discovered this restaurant by accident. We wanted a place to eat with our nieces after visiting the "Mosteiro dos Jeronimos", before we went through the door, we looked in the window and liked it. We went and had no regrets, and have been back many times. Of course, it is always full and you should make a reservation even only half an hour before. It serves typical Portuguese food, homemade, simple and well cooked. I would recommend the fish, very fresh, with cod in the first place. A bottle of chilled "vinho verde" (the Muralhas is very good) to accompany the food, a homemade dessert and coffee for those ve only know how to be like the Portuguese and bon appétit! They are nice, attentive and are always in a good mood, which is appreciated. The menu has prices to fit any budget depending on the dish you want- no-one can say it's an expensive place. The portions are huge, so the starters are almost too much. Actually not a bad idea to tell the waiter that you don't want them even before sitting down to eat: a plate of ham and one of cheese cost € 11.00. It's not nonsense. If you can make room for more food, Caseiro is practically in front of the famous "Casa dos Pastéis de Belém". It's open from 12:00 to 15:00 and 19:00 to 22:00 and it's closed Sundays and August.
The restaurant is great, we found it on Minube and ate there every day. The quality is exceptional and the prices are cheap. We were treated like kings the minute we walked in. They speak Spanish and English, and have menus in German and other languages. The fried choquiños al Antoniu's are a gastronomic delight, for example. They serve fresh fish and meat too, which in this area is not very common. The truth is that I thank Minube for finding it. Every night the waiter regaled us with a shot of liquor or with an unexpected dessert. Treatment, service and meal - all a 10.
We went to this place to eat after we walked around the city and the truth is that the quality of its cuisine surprised us. They gave us the recommendation of the chef for free, which was a blood sausage with carmelized apple and red bell pepper froth that was to die for! What I liked most were the sardines in a traditional conserve (made by themselves), that reminded me of the soft flavor of the ocean. Also the carpaccio of Bacalao was good, and then a little orange cake with ginger cookie over an orange gelatin. Mmmm, the price was really good. With many beers we left paying 22@ a person.
