Book far in advance if you want a table. It's a small restaurant and they prefer groups. You can eat in their second restaurant and enjoy the Fado later. Hope you find a table because the restaurant is very busy. Good food... More

Description
The Madragoa Cafe is a place where you can find a traditional Portuguese cuisine, where the products used are fresh and Portuguese. The predominant wines are from the Douro region, however it is possible to find wines from other regions. The dishes are a selection of some of the best that each region of Portugal has to offer. The desserts are traditional and some are made at the restaurant. The affection with which clients are received, that comes from the heart. See you soon!
