Costa de Caparica Restaurants

  • prato do dia

    A prato do dia (dish of the day) is always a good option for lunch. We rented an apartment and ate out very rarely here, but liked Copacabana. Good pastries as well.Careful with the appetizers, though: if you touch them all (olives, bread, cheese etc.) you can end up being charged a lot extra. We tried "arroz de tamboril" and found it definitely...

  • Family run restaurant

    This restaurant is nothing to look at and is on the main shopping street in Caparica BUT it caught our eye as the place was buzzing with seemingly local people. The waiter was about 18 years old and was funny friendly and very helpful.We came a couple of times and both time were very good. A couple of beers while waiting for the food made the wait...

Costa de Caparica Warnings and Dangers

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The little open carriage train that stops off at the beaches along the 10 kms of beach has about 21 stops. Stops 18 and 19 are for nudists and gays. So if you want a family day out I suggest you avoid these stops or you might see more than you bargained for. We got off at stop 21 in case you wondered!!!!

Costa de Caparica Off The Beaten Path

    Costa de Caparica is still very much a small fishing community, and when your timing is right, you may just catch the fishing boats coming in with their loadful of catch at the end of the day. We were in Costa one nice October afternoon when some fishermen were hauling in their net and put in a quite a mound of sardines mainly, with a squid now and then and some bigger fish appearing, right there on the sand. They were just about to put them in the regulation orange plastic containers, but were also selling to those who cared to get some very live, fat sardines for so cheap, the fishermen didn't even bother to weigh them. We got ourselves a couple of bags full, and had them grilled immediately. The leftovers we made into escabeche, which is to first fry them (in batter, preferably), and to marinade them after in vinegar, spices, and olive oil. It becomes even better, the longer it stays in this marinade.

  • crowded up north

    Just to reiterate, the beaches closest to Lisbon are the most crowded. It's a chaotic, wild, smelly zoo full of tan-bodied people.
