A good place for morning coffee and just to sit and watch the activity in the square. A lovely position and good service.

Nice location, but food as bad as possible, really a "turist trap"! The service is good and very attentive, but obvious that kitchen send out fish they must know is not up to standard. Red housewine served at 25+ C.

Caffe Constantino is not a restaurant, it is a caffe.

Until a few years ago, it was not permissible for a caffe to serve food. A relaxation in the licensing regime now permits caffes to offer cold food (salads etc) and to heat up pre-cooked food i.e. by microwaving pre-packed meals cooked elsewhere. Caffe Constantino (and all other caffes) are not legally allowed to cook fresh food on the premises, although many of them do in breach of the food health regulations.

So please be warned, as you will not know the country of origin, the ingredients or the sell by date of what you order. If in doubt, please ask. If you do not receive a satisfactory answer, get up, walk away and choose an establishment advertises itself as a Ristorante, Trattoria or Osteria, where you can be sure that you will be served freshly cooked food.

Good Luck.

The food was average, but what really made this experience objectionable was the incredibly surly waitressing. From the moment we sat down we were made to feel as though we had committed some gross imposition by choosing to dine in her restaurant. Not once did we see a single smile from her, and the odd glance round the other tables revealed most other patrons had received a similar reception. Although the pricing was reasonable there was absolutely nothing about this restaurant which could convince us to return.

It was the Italy vs. England match for the EURO 2012, which we HAD to see. We arrived at this restaurant hoping to get a sit outside in front of the telly… How naïve of us! We did get a table inside the restaurant just next to a whole Italian family who had set the table for around 10+ people as it were the top table at a wedding so nobody had his back to the screen. The experience was phenomenal. We loved every minute of it. However, the service, the food and the price fell a bit short of our expectations. It was not bad, just average. Bearing that in mind, we decided to visit the establishment again for the Spain vs. Portugal match. This time we were “lucky” we got a sit outside, but there was a catch: The terrace is, of course, not tiered, so everybody’s head was blocking our view (we were a few metres away from the screen) and the multitasking of trying to eat, watch the match among the sea of heads and splatting mosquitoes left, right and centre was too much for us and we left half-way through our meal.
