Well worth a visit for lunch, or just a quiet drink, charming and very friendly staff. The layout is comfortable, with sofa's and low tables with a lovely fire in the winter time.

A great place for a snack and a drink. In the winter they have a great fire so it is nice and cozy. Say hello to The African Grey parrot who lives there, he loves peanuts. When the chestnuts have been harvested try the ones covered in chocolates they are delicious.

We happened upon this wonderful bar which served a delicious local craft beer. The music was good, the staff friendly and the interior adorable. We only wished that it was cooler outside to allow the fireplace to be lit. If you are in Marvao don't miss this gem.

Wonderful place to chill out with a G&T at the end of the day... the Gin list is quite impressive and well worth trying a few different gins out before dinner :-)

Great location at the top of Marvão with expansive views from the back alfresco tables. Offers great beer selection from belgian to the Portuguese Barona. Also great in Winter by the cosy open fire.
