This place was very good once under the previous owner and I came here often, but these times are definitely over. After having a few unpleasant experiences, I stopped coming. Yesterday I thought I try one more time and was served the worst greasy, disgusting Lasagna (served with fries!) in my whole life. I was sick all afternoon and evening,... More

Although slightly out of the way, this is a superb cafe, well worth a visit. The daily specials menu is great value and the chef obviously puts a lot of thought into offering something different each day, there is also a full menu providing everything from breakfasts to tasty wraps, baguettes, salads and hot meals. Great cocktails and smoothies too.... More

With lots of apartments in the vicinity this place is always busy. Providing great refreshments (including bottled beer at 1.5Euros) I highly recommend the fresh fruit juice blends and wraps. The toasted sandwiches are good too plus you can get salads which are always fresh. The burgers are nothing special though. Prices are reasonable too. Recommended if you are in... More

We were staying very close to Cafe Fresco so it was a welcome surprise to find out just how good it was. Every member of staff who we dealt with was very friendly and very helpful. The food was all very good - our two most difficult to please customers (8 year old boy and 4 year old girl) loved... More

I used to really like this place , however , on this trip I felt it had gone down a lot. The service was excellent and the food was fine but pricy for Portugal.

Don't pass this place by thinking it is just another café. It serves fresh food and drinks that are spot on. The zinger wrap is a must, just enough for a lunchtime taster. And like all the menu, great value for money It can be busy but that only serves to say how good it is but you can always... More
