About the neighbourhood
All the main restaurants and bars are adjacent to the apartment and there are plenty of nice ones to chose from.

A good choice (not quite on the main square, but very near to the flat) is O Galeao, Rua Laranjeira (no, 1). It’s usually very busy (may be worth booking) and has a slightly more formal (or old fashioned) feel to most of the restaurants.

The most popular with the Portuguese and the best value is the large Agiada di Marina, which is a 5-minute walk, on the Avenida Dos Descobrimentos (walking direction is away from the sea) on the left hand side. They specialise in the local fish, but do other meals too. Tourist main menus are about €8 and a full meal for two with wine is about €25.
