The magic of Costa da Caparica

Imagine a breathtaking view of the Atlantic Ocean as the backdrop to your lunch or dinner, complete with Portuguese culinary delights.

These beach bars artfully blend thoughtful cuisine, lively social vibes and stunning scenery. Looking for more relaxation? Loungers, sunbeds and umbrellas are available for rent to ensure your comfort. Each spot presents a cosmopolitan fusion, adding a touch of global flair to Costa da Caparica's inherently Portuguese essence - always anchored by the magnificent Atlantic Ocean.

A Tip

Don't wing it. Reservations are key, especially in the busy month of August. Whether it's a lazy summer day at one of these beach restaurants or exploring the lesser-traveled paths of the Setúbal peninsula or the Lisbon metropolitan area. Plan with a Fora Advisor so all you have to do is show up and enjoy!

Places to eat & drink in Costa da Caparica, Portugal

Outdoor sitting on beach deck.

Piscina offers more than just a touch of elegance. With its French-inspired panache, this spot boasts an expansive terrace with panoramic ocean views. Be aware that shaded seating is limited, especially when the wind picks up. And their octopus salad? A taste bud revelation you won't want to miss!

For those seeking a vibrant nightlife, Irmão delivers. As the weekend sun sets, Brazilian beats take over and the atmosphere becomes electric. Their delicious pizzas and dynamic dance floor atmosphere make it the ultimate hotspot. The bar area is right on the sand, it's Lisbon's weekend escape redefined. The 3 French brothers who own it have done a great job.

Then there's Pôsto da Onda - a rustic retreat that exudes casual comfort. Owned by a Mexican hotel chain, this laid-back spot won me over with its warm service. After sipping an iced coffee here, you'll feel like royalty. It's a sunset chaser's paradise, and as summer wanes, it's even the perfect setting for awe-inspiring full moon displays.
