We go here frequently because of the location, friendly staff and good food. They have a series of plates-of-the-day, which my friends sometimes select. I go for the 100% novillo (all beef) burger, extra rare with french fries. What we found out recently is they...More

Description
O café Maratona, estabelecimento fundado em 1966, mais de quatro décadas de histórias e experiência. Com o novo projecto idealizado em 2008, pretende-se recriar o ambiente vivo e informal do tradicional café, não só como espaço social, mas também enquanto espaço de reflexão, mas agora num espaço actual e confortável, com um toque de glamour e sofisticação, virado para um público cada vez mais urbano e cosmopolita. Mais do que um café, pretende-se um espaço que responda às necessidades de um público cada vez mais exigente e conhecedor. Na porta ao lado funciona o restaurante, onde modernidade e tradição em ambiente informal chique com uma cozinha criativa de caracter urbano que acompanha e gera tendências. O design, a estética e a preocupação com o detalhe para nós não são um pormenor, afinal de contas os olhos também comem e toda a experiência que se pretende oferecer é o somatório de todas estas valências, inuma relação qualidade preço imbatíveis.
