Enjoy the scenery of sun, sea and sand while eating fine shellfish and sipping on that well deserved cocktail. From your Pestana CR7 Hotel in Lisbon, you can easily reach the ocean in just under one hour!
Let us introduce you to our selection of the top 7 best beach bars and restaurants:
Restaurante Sal, Comporta (around 1:30 hour from Pestana CR7 Lisboa)
Fresh fish and seafood are the house specials but you have a lot to choose from the several typical Portuguese dishes on the menu. The relaxed atmosphere of the place is suitable for a casual mean. Don’t be surprised if you find a celebrity walking down the beach – the Comporta area is one of the best kept secrets of European aristocracy and Hollywood stars (oops! not so well kept after all!)
Duna da Cresmina, Cascais (around 40 minutes by car)
Forgot to bring a snack to the beach? No problem – just stop by this beach bar in Cascais and they’ll have your lunchbox ready in just 10 minutes. If you prefer, you can seat at the bar next to Cresmina Dune’s Interpretation Center, order a fresh salad, grab a beer and enjoy the panoramic views over the cape.
Bar do Guincho, Cascais (about 40 minutes by car)
Surfers love this place, as they can store their surfboards and take a hot shower just before they have a delicious meal. Bar do Guincho boasts a high variety of salads, burgers, sandwiches and fresh fish and meat. Don’t miss the terrace over the sand – it really is worth spending some time there.
Kailua, Fonte da Telha (just a 40-minutes drive)
Cross the bridge and enjoy the wide beaches in the small fishermen community of Fonte da Telha. At Kailua, you’ll find savory dishes with “Italian influence, Thai inspiration and Hawaiian flavor”. What we love the most about this bar is their environmental concern, as they have an in-house recycling center and often promote beach cleaning campaigns.
Bar do Peixe, Meco (around 50 minutes from your Pestana CR7 Hotel)
Located in the beautiful beach Meco beach – a paradise for surfers, nudists and party lovers alike. This restaurant features the most delicious seafood and serves all day – from breakfast to dinner, including brunch. Stay there long enough to watch the impressive sunset.
Borda D’Água, Caparica (just a 30-minutes drive)
Nested in the amazing fossil scarps of Caparica, this bar is located at the Morena beach, part of 30 km-long golden sand beach complex. At Borda D’Água, you can expect the best grilled fish, as well as finger-licking sandwiches and salads. Rinse it with a glass of sangria or a caipirinha.
Restaurante D’u Portinho, Setúbal (1 hour distance)
Ideal for a late lunch and when you just want to take a break from hiking on the breathtaking Arrabida mountains. Again, fresh fish and seafood are on the menu. After all, Portugal has the best fish in the world and you will not find a restaurant closer to the sea than this one!
