The menu boasts an array of freshly brewed coffees and light bites that are perfect for a casual brunch or a mid-afternoon pick-me-up. As everything is made the ingredients of the season, the menu follows the rhythm of nature. 

2. Praia da Luz, Restaurant

For a dining experience with a view, Praia da Luz is the place to be. Located right on the beach, this restaurant offers breathtaking ocean vistas that complement its exquisite cuisine. The menu features a variety of fresh seafood dishes, expertly prepared to highlight the flavors of the Atlantic. Whether you're enjoying a leisurely lunch or a romantic dinner, the stunning backdrop of the sea makes every meal here unforgettable.
