    We want your trip to be unforgettable. This is why you can expect the best from our chefs, Vítor Sobral and Dânio Braga, who are in charge of delicious dishes with the finest selection of fish, poultry, meat and traditional Portuguese cuisine.


    Light meals with a delicious variety of cold cuts, fresh fruit and desserts.

    Our wines and beverages

    Our selection, which has been prepared by wine lovers and experts from Portugal (Maria João de Almeida, Rui Falcão, Pedro Garcias, Luís Antunes and Fernando Melo) and Brazil (Ricardo Castilho, Marcelo Copello and Dânio Braga), reflects the quality, richness and choice of Portuguese grape varieties.

    Their experience was the key to making sure that our wine list expressed the quality of Portuguese wines, and is one more reason that your trip will be pleasant and memorable.

    We also serve fruit juices, coffee, including espresso, and a variety of teas.
