Cafeina Restaurant first burst onto Porto’s gastronomic scene more than a decade ago and it remains as endearingly popular today as it was when it first opened. Located in a 19th-century manor house set close to the sea in the Foz do Douro district of Porto, Cafeina Restaurant offers a warm welcome both to locals and to visitors who come here to sample its delights during their stay in Portugal.
The interior of Cafeina is modern and sophisticated, decorated in dark colours with a rustic yet contemporary edge. The interior is well lit and elegantly laid out, ensuring plenty of privacy in which to enjoy a meal for two. The restaurant is divided into two rooms, a main restaurant and a café-bar.
The former is the perfect spot in which to enjoy a memorable meal, while the latter is a popular destination for those in search of a relaxed evening drink and snack.
Diners and drinkers enjoy their fare to the accompaniment of a range of music, from jazz and easy listening to classical, all designed to enhance rather than overpower the food that is on offer from Cafeina Restaurant’s well-regarded kitchen.
The set lunch menu offers excellent value, making Cafeina a popular destination for those wishing to escape the hustle and bustle of Porto city centre and spend a day exploring the Foz district to the west of the city on Portugal’s Atlantic coastline.
Around 17 euros will buy a tasty three-course meal with a choice of soup for starter, a main such as magret of duck with honey, nuts and rosemary, and a choice of home-made desserts such as mango cheesecake or tarte tatin.
Eating out with children in tow is popular in Portugal, and the little ones are well taken care of at Cafeina, with a children’s menu at around 12 euros for three courses.
Cafeina has a reputation amongst Porto restaurants for offering excellent service and a warm welcome, treating first-time visitors and loyal regulars with equal care and attention.
