Lunch at the Ria Formosa Restaurant is served from 12.30 pm to 3 pm. This is the perfect place for both businesspeople and groups of friends to have lunch or to relax after a visit to the city's historical sites. Dinner is served from 7.30 pm to 10.30 pm, but we suggest you arrive in plenty of time to enjoy a pre-dinner drink or cocktail while you marvel at the magnificent sunset.
