Most eateries in Medemblik were concentrated down the main street, or at a bottleneck next to the lifting bridge and so were rather crowded tourist traps. We saw signs to a Portugese restaurant and so followed these along the side of the harbour basin to find a much quieter terrace with a nice view of the boats.
You can have a full Portuguese meal here but also tapas, or as we did, just sandwiches. There wasn't much by way of vegetarian food on the menu so my partner had a goats cheese sandwich, but I had the pleasure of a speciality Portuguese pork sandwich. The pork was marinated in a very tasty mix of herbs and was delicious washed down with a glass of white wine!
A nice quiet spot to watch the boats sail into harbour and if the sun is shining you won't move far!
