To Eat in São Martinho do Porto
It will come as no surprise that abundant gifts from the sea dominate the menu boards in São Martinho do Porto. A steaming bowl of seafood stew or cataplana is a must as is any "catch of the day." The fresh, simple flavors with the crashing Atlantic Ocean, and a year-round outdoor dining scene are attractive to locals and tourists alike. Boca do Mar and O da Casa are two popular establishments that offer beachfront boutique-style dining. The seasonally diverse menus, and tradition mixed with inventive pairings, make for an unforgettable meal any time of year. For a great pizza after a full day on the beach, Portobella's is the perfect Little Italy. The Swiss cuisine at the Royal Marina will transport your tastebuds to yet another culinary destination. When you feel like a quiet lunch on your patio, be sure to visit the daily market and local butcher in the historic old town. Fresh rolls, spicy chorizo, and artisan cheeses will satiate any holiday-makers palette at a price that will keep you coming back for more. A trip to Gelatomania, rain or shine, is the perfect place for a sweet treat after (or before) a tantalizing meal.
