Barreirinha Bar Café

Sometimes all you need is a cool drink in one hand, and a small bite to eat in the other. Luckily, there is Barreirinha Bar Café. The bar has beautiful panoramic views of the ocean, and serves a mean Mojito. You can order an avocado burger on the side.


Portugal is known for its delicious sweet pastries and cakes. One of the most famous ones is the pastel de nata, a tart filled with creamy egg custard. But you won't only find a pastelaria full of pasteis de nata, they have much more to offer such as pastel de côco, and tarte de amêndoa. For those among us who don't speak Portuguese, these pastries are a coconut and almond tarts. Get yourself a cup of coffee or tea and you will have the perfect lunch. Be prepared to return home having packed on a couple of extra pounds.
