Expert review of Portas Do Sol
It's all about outdoor eating and drinking here, where folk lounge away hours in the comfy black sofas on the sprawling concrete terrace, surrounded by the historic roof-tops, church spires and the gleaming river below. Whenever I come for lunch, I always end up staying for dinner.
Nothing flashy is served, just simple salads, sandwiches and burgers. The cocktails are excellent – I always go for a caipirinha around sunset.
It's pretty casual here – as afternoon turns into evening the vibe picks up with dancing and DJ's inside.
On the whole the staff are very pleasant. However, I've noticed that they can be a little understaffed when it gets busy, making for a bit of wait between bottles of wine and other refills.
In the middle of the Alfama district – right next to the main tram stop – with stunning views around the city.
Sandwiches and salads are around the 10 euros mark but the bill always adds up after a few bottles of wine.
You can't book any tables but get there early to grab one of the comfy sofas.
