Sometimes in a distant land there is a craving for something else from somewhere else. This cafe ships in Argentine steak (€18.50 with potatoes and onions) twice a week and it hits the spot. Washed down with the house rosso (€4 a glass) - the...More

Always loved Argentina and this tiny resto took us back. Sunday night proved advantageous with no wait and no rush. Try the smoked fish starter plate and the flan to finish, with some tinto and steak in the middle. Delish!

"squeak", the nickname of a 16th century poet) offers
plenty of cafes, restaurants and bars where you can
stop for a cafe or cocktail, after exploring its
streets, shops, art galleries, theaters, museums and
viewpoints. It's also the home to the statue of the
famous statue of portuguese poet Fernando Pessoa,
having is usual espresso at "A Brasileira" as he used
