Stopped here for a bite while walking around Belem. Average cafeteria food. Self service. Quite clean. If you are not expecting too much and just want something basic, a stop here is fine.

Sorry to write such a terrible review but this place along the banks of the Tagus is a tourist trap. The food is awful, there is no ambience nor view. There are a number of better places within walking distance and if you can hold...More

breathtaking views of the Tagus river will make your
visit worth your time. Belém also offers a variety of
