My weekend and Royale Café

The weekend was absolutely great. We went to the market, fairs, museum, lunch with friends, eating my favourite ice cream, beach and lunch at my usual Saturday spot... Royale Café. It's a small cozy restaurant in the old part of Lisbon, but with really modern design and a small beautifully green terrace. I love to go there and I feel really good every time I enter. People working there are so friendly and make you feel at home.

The food... well, from toasts, salads, great octopus and codfish (my favourites)... there is lot to choose from.

How was your weekend? Did you already know Royale Café? Do you like it?

O fim-de-semana foi absolutamente fantástico. Fomos ao mercado, feiras, museu, um almoço com amigos, comer o meu gelado preferido, praia e almoço no lugar habitual de sábado... o Royale Café. É um restaurante pequeno e acolhedor, na parte antiga de Lisboa, mas com um design muito moderno e um pequeno terraço lindamente verde. Gosto de lá ir e sinto-me muito bem cada vez que entro. As pessoas que lá trabalham são muito afáveis e fazem-me sentir em casa.

A comida... bem, das torradas às saladas, um fantástico polvo e bacalhau (os meus preferidos)... há muito por onde escolher.

Como foi o vosso fim-de-semana? Já conhecia o Royale Café? Gosta?

  4. this looks and sounds lovely! I spent my weekend organizing and having a bridal shower party :)

  5. I spent my weekend packing my books, over 7000 of them, you can only imagine...
    Envy you on the time spent in that place, seems adorable :-)

  6. I don'tknow about the Royal Cafe, but the next time I am in Lisbon I will be sure to stop.
    This weekend we were returning home from our vacation.
    I follow your blog and love it. It's a litle nostalgic, because I miss all things portuguese!
