Great place with good food and superb service: Restaurant Big 21 (7. January 2019)

A couple of nights before, I had walked into Big 21 and it turned out that they were fully booked so I decided to give it a try two days later and it was definitely worth doing so. Heads-up: Book in advance as else you will have your difficulties getting a table. I started with […]

One of the places you wouldn’t visit – but you should: Restaurante III Arcos (7. January 2019)

One of the places you wouldn’t visit – but you should: Restaurante III Arcos (7. January 2019)

When you are in the middle of nowhere and suddenly become hungry, Google Maps is helping a lot. The III Arcos was located only a few kilometers from the thermal baths in the sea and was easy to get to. You wouldn’t enter the place from outside as it does not look appealing at all. […]

Super friendly service and good local food: Restaurant São Pedro (6. January 2019)

The light in the São Pedro restaurant is a bit special as everything is somewhat blueish (which you can also see in the pictures). The waiter takes care of you immediately and makes you feel very welcome right away. As soon as you are seated they bring you a small selection of “cheese, sweet paste, […]

When you definitely are in a food coma afterwards: Restaurant A Tasca (5. January 2019)

If you order a blood sausage for EUR 6.50 as a starter you’d expect a small portion of food but the “blood sausage with pineapple” (EUR 6.50) is actually a super large sausage. It is absolutely delicious, so I’m not complaining but it could gladly have been much smaller as it stuffs you quite a […]

A truly local experience with lovely attendance: Mercearia São Pedro (5. January 2019)

The Mercearia São Pedro was ranked rather high on TripAdvisor so it was time to visit it. The place is somewhat small but very atmospheric. After figuring that Mercearia is basically a grocery store with some tables for people to sit down, I appreciated the place even more. The owner came up to us and […]

The link to the actual Louvre is mot there but the place is quite lovely in terms of atmosphere and interior design. It seems that this is a very traditional café which has been there for at […]

Average breakfast selection but decent location: Restaurant A Terra @ Azor Hotel (5. – 8. January 2019)

The breakfast selection at the A Terra restaurant in the Azor Hotel is decent – not really overwhelming in any way but there is a bit of everything you need ranging from regular white bread to sweet bread and pastel de nata. There is a selection of toasted bread … … as well as an […]
