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.

This is a nice little cafe with garden seating, an indoor lounge with sofas and a small dining room where they have a self serve menu del dia at lunch time for €9. The great thing is that they have a large range of beer. Belgian, German and a local craft beer company called Barona. Sick of lager? Try this... More

Super location near the castle, solid beer selection with some German and Belgian offerings in a country that makes pretty poor beer ! Sandwich bread was outstanding

Thank scattershot
