Let’s get [content] mapping…

Cola and Veronika went round all cafes and restaurants of Monchique, asking what their specialties and prices were and getting to know their atmosphere, to include them in our food map. From their report, here first version write ups to describe and recommend.

Restaurante de Charrette

Mostly visited by backpackers and families. Recommended meal cabbage, chestnuts, bean & pork. From my own experience, it’s delish!


Small cafe with great cakes and Wifi. Visited by foreigners and locals alike – a popular spot for work, catch up and lunch.

Cafe Montanie

Local corner bar. Serves no food, but maybe if you want to scratch up on your Portuguese the place to go.

Chocolate shop

What can one say, the perfect place for tea, chocolate and locally made crafts. Run by lovely British Expats. Come here, for all the insider information of what to do in Monchique.

Cafe da Vila

Popular outdoor cafe with snacks for the touristic pellet, but keep off at nights when it transforms into a youth club.

Cafe de lavista

A local tavern for Sandes Mista

Restaurant O’ze

The place to go for a 4 EUR traditional lunch

Restaurante Opak

Pork in all shapes and sizes. Great atmosphere with a wide range of people.


The place to go for a Sunday roast lamb and a beautiful view over Picota. In winter it has a cosy fireplace.

Oluar da Foia

Excellent meals from local produce. To recreate at home, take a little something from their shop home e.g. pumpkin jam or piri piri sauce
